Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
Doctors have an old saying: an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Nowhere is this truer than in the dental profession, especially in family dentistry. Calgary family dentist Dr. Jennifer Silver frequently urges his patients to take the small, simple steps necessary to maintain good dental hygiene. This is because he knows that the best way to keep your teeth and gums healthy, and you out of serious dental danger, is prevention.
This is especially important for your children. Dr. Silver sees young patients every day as part of his family dentistry practice, and many of them could see significant benefits from some very simple practices.
Maintaining your teeth should become a habit, and when it does it’ll be easy for you and your children to keep your teeth and gums in solid health. Here are a few things you can do to ensure your trips to the family dentist will be short and pleasant.
- Brush and floss regularly, at least twice a day. Use a soft-bristled tooth brush and non-abrasive toothpaste.
- Minimize your consumptions of certain foods and beverages that harm your teeth, especially caffeinated or sugary items like coffees and sodas. If you do drink soda, use a straw: it will keep the soda from hurting your teeth.
- Make frequent, regularly scheduled visits to Dr. Silver. You can do a lot of good at home, but regular cleanings by the skilled dental team at Southcentre Dental Clinic are vital. Dentists can reach places you can’t, and they have equipment you don’t.
