Why It's Important
The best way to prevent cavities and periodontal disease is by good tooth brushing and flossing techniques, performed daily, along with professional cleanings by a hygienist and regular dental exams.
At Greeson Dentistry, we suggest you have your hygiene visits every 6 months. During those visits, your hygienist will do a thorough screening, yearly x-rays and Dr. Greeson will review and create a plan as needed.
These dental exams will work to fight Periodontal disease (gum disease) and decay. Plaque, a colorless film which sticks to your teeth at the gum line, is the leading reason for Periodontal disease. By thorough daily brushing and flossing and visiting the dentist bi-annually, you can remove these germs and help prevent periodontal disease.
