Hello and welcome to the Perrigo Dental Care blog!
Our practice boasts the only father-son dentist duo in Hoover, Alabama! So, when we say we are a family-focused office, we really mean it. When you are here, you will certainly be treated like family. And you can trust that we will be your partner for prevention for however long you are entrusted to our care.
We take a comprehensive approach to prevention. In fact, this online platform is part of our education outreach program aimed at making sure that you have all the information you need to keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking great. That way you can do your part to optimize your oral health.
Prevention Is Important
It goes without saying that you do at home is important. Your hygiene habits are the foundation that we build upon when you come to see us twice a year. Threats to your health are everywhere, so you definitely need to be vigilant.
For example, this summer, whenever you are tempted by a sugary snack, try to remember that cavities take hold when sugars and starches are left on the surface of your teeth. When left alone, they will turn into the acids that form plaque when combined with your saliva. This plaque destroys your teeth enamel, causes decay, and even accelerates gum disease. None of that will be fun for you.
As such, you will need to remember to brush your teeth twice each day, for two or more minutes at a go. But that will only be the beginning. FInd the floss and go after the areas in-between your teeth. If you are able, finish off your routine by rinsing with a fluoride-fortified mouthwash.
All of these things will go a long way. But they will only go so far, which is why we are here.
We’ll Take It Further
There is a reason why we invest so heavily in training and technology for our office: YOU!
We do it all because we know that you could benefit greatly from a professional teeth cleaning with our Ultrasonic Scaler and Prophy Jet Polish every 3-6 months. Our modern tools can eradicate any tartar, plaque, and bacteria that might have snuck up on you since your last trip to Perrigo Dental Care.
While you are here we will also thoroughly examine your mouth to see if anything is amiss. If it is, we will address it swiftly so we can restore the health of your smile without requiring any painful or pricy procedures.
As further prevention, we also offer dental sealants. Dental sealants are layers of protective plastic coating that seal off the grooves and hidden zones of your teeth that are known to hide food, plaque, and other bad things.
Get Back On-Track!
We hope that you have been inspired to take us up on our preventive dentistry services.
