Preventive Care

Keeping your teeth clean and healthy is the best way to prevent the need for serious dental procedures. Visiting us at Dr. Vinson’s office twice a year for regular teeth cleanings is a critical part of maintaining good oral health. However, what you do in between visits to keep your teeth healthy is equally as important.

How to maintain good oral health:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, if not after every meal.
  • Replace your toothbrush every 3 or 4 months and after recovering from being sick.
  • Clean between your teeth by flossing daily and using an antibacterial mouthwash.
  • Use a soft bristle toothbrush so as to not irritate your gums.
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit your intake of soft drinks.
