Have you ever wondered how you can keep your smile healthy? One of the most important factors in maintaining good oral health is practicing good dental hygiene. It takes daily care to keep your smile in optimal health! Dr. Jennifer B. Frankel, our skilled dentist, recommends that you brush your teeth at least twice every day or after each meal and that you floss at least once a day. Maintaining a balanced, nutritious diet also helps to keep your smile healthy. Remember to visit us at Northwest Dental Arts & Sleep Therapy every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam as well.
To further protect your smile, we may recommend dental sealants. Sealants are simple yet effective coatings that are applied to the chewing surface of the back molars to protect them from tooth decay. While dental sealants are typically recommended for children when their permanent back molars erupt, we may also recommend sealants for adults based on each patient’s individual needs. Fluoride, a natural mineral, also helps to prevent tooth decay. We may suggest fluoride treatment if your teeth are prone to decay.
