Making Dental Health A Top Priority In Hoover, AL

Making Dental Health A Top Priority In Hoover, AL

Happy New Year! Welcome back to our oral health blog!

At Perrigo Dental Care we work hard to provide comprehensive dental services to the good folks of Hoover, Alabama. If you live in the area, we hope you will schedule your 2016 appointments with us sooner than later.

In our office on Patton Chapel Road, we offer preventative cleanings, checkups, and so forth, all in an effort to keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking its best. Accordingly, we are big on helping the families entrusted to our care prevent tooth decay.

Tooth Decay Can Take You By Surprise

Did you know that tooth decay occurs when sugars and starches are left on the surface of your teeth? Yep! They then turn into the acids that form plaque when combined with your saliva. This plaque, in turn, destroys your teeth enamel, creates cavities, and even contributes to gum disease. Obviously, none of these things are good for you!

Still, there are some simple steps that you can take to keep decay from ravaging your smile.

Use The Proper Tools

Get out the toothbrush and get to work! The American Dental Association recommends that you brush your teeth for at least two minutes, twice or more each day.

You really should start your children on brushing their teeth at the earliest possible age.

This is because, even before you have teeth, there is already dangerous bacteria floating around your mouth. True story!

Brushing Is Only The Beginning

We can assure you that brushing your teeth (twice a day for two minutes or more) is a great first step. But don’t stop there!

Truth be told, dental floss is the only way to remove food particles, tartar and plaque that gets between your teeth and in all the hard to reach regions of your mouth.

We suggest you take the extra time to floss, every time you brush! This will help you steer clear of root canals and extractions down the road.

Additionally, you might want to add a fluoride mouthwash to your daily routine for extra protection.

Perrigo Dental Should Be Part Of The Plan

We are here to be your partner in oral health. Whatever you do at home is great. But some potentially harmful things will inevitably remain in your mouth and will require a professionally-trained eye and some special tools to treat.

By stopping by every 3-6 months to get a professional teeth cleaning with our Ultrasonic Scaler and Prophy Jet Polish, you can eradicate any tartar, plaque, and bacteria that might have built up in spite of your best efforts with the brush, floss, and mouthwash at home.

What’s more, while you are here, we will be able to examine your mouth for any irregularities so that we can address them before they become bigger (and more costly) threats to your health. This pertains not only to decay but also to gum disease and oral cancer.

For further protection against decay, we can also provide you with dental sealants, even if you are all grown up. Our dental sealants are basically just layers of protective plastic coating that seal off the grooves and hidden nooks of your teeth that are known to collect food, plaque, etc.

By doing your part at home and making us part of your plan every 3-6 months, you will have done all that you can do to keep decay and disease at bay.
