One of the biggest contributors to preventive care happens outside our dental practice. Our team cleans and examines your teeth two days a year, but the remaining 363 days are all up to you. That’s why we offer guidance to maximize the benefits of your at-home care routine. Possibly the most essential aspect of oral hygiene is tooth brushing.
