The American Dental Association offers a series of guidelines and daily recommendations to help consumers maintain a healthy mouth. This includes brushing your teeth twice and flossing once each day. Using quality oral hygiene products will also play a key factor.
While performing your daily oral hygiene routine you need to be sure that you are only using quality oral hygiene products. You should always look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance before purchasing any oral hygiene product. This small logo on the package signifies that it has been thoroughly researched and tested by the ADA for safe and effective oral use.
Having a dental checkup performed at Dr. Arpan Patel’s clinic is also very important for maintaining a healthy mouth. During the appointment one of Dr. Arpan Patel’s hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth. Dr. Arpan Patel will then examine your mouth for signs of gum disease, cavities, and oral cancer.
If he finds a problem Dr. Arpan Patel will present you with the most applicable treatment method. This might also include preventative measures like a fluoride treatment or dental sealants.
