Good Oral Health Habits Benefit Your Smile for Life

When you practice good oral hygiene, you are taking one more step toward ensuring your overall health and wellness. Visiting your general dentist on a regular basis maintains your smile, but also defends your teeth and gums against disease. At New Concept Dental, we go above and beyond to make sure you get the most out of your office visit.

Our priority is to keep your teeth healthy for life. We do this by offering comprehensive dental services that include prevention, diagnosis, and treatment for all your oral health needs. You can count on the staff at New Concept Dental to help you choose products and treatments that always benefit you and your family. Our number one concern is making sure that we offer practiced and professional advice, so you always feel educated and in control of your oral health.

Dental Cleanings Improve Your Smile

When you brush your teeth (at least twice a day) and floss, you are taking steps to keep your mouth, teeth, and gums healthy for a lifetime. But, no matter how dedicated and thorough your home, oral healthcare routine is, it can’t take the place of regular, twice a year dental cleanings. Scheduling (and keeping) these dental appointments will help you stay one step ahead of substantial dental problems. When you schedule a checkup, our hygienists will:

• Inspect your teeth for cavities
• Look for signs of tooth deterioration
• Examine your mouth for signs of gum disease (periodontal disease)
• Meticulously clean and rinse your teeth for a sparkling finish
• Examine your teeth for problems you may not feel or see

These cleanings also give you the chance to discuss with your dentist any concerns you have about your oral health. Not only do regular visits benefit your mouth and teeth, bi-annual visits are also great ways to learn about new products or treatments available to help you achieve that camera-ready smile.

Stay Educated about Your Oral Health

Learning more about your teeth, mouth, gums, and overall oral health doesn’t have to be uninteresting. It can be fun and enlightening. For example, did you know that our teeth are designed to last a lifetime? It’s true! Tooth enamel is the hardest part of our body – stronger even than our bones! But, if you want to keep your teeth healthy for life, you need to brush, floss, and visit your dentist regularly.
