Morningside Dental Care's Dr. Donna Williams works with her patients to learn proper techniques of preventive dentistry. She knows how much of a difference proper techniques make to the brushing and flossing regimen. Many people understand how important it is to brush their teeth at least two times each day, and many also understand the need for flossing. However, it is also true that many people do not use proper techniques. As a dentist, Dr. Williams knows that improper techniques do very little to prevent gum disease or decay.
Using a soft bristled brush is the first item of importance. Next, it is important to make sure that the toothbrush is placed at a 45 degree angle against the gum line. The brush is then gently moved back and forth to brush away the tartar or plaque that gathers on the teeth surfaces. Flossing is necessary to remove food from between the teeth before it can help bacteria to grow. Mouthwash is the next element that one ought to use so that the bacteria can be eliminated.
With gum disease reaching epidemic proportions in this country, it is important for people to use at-home preventive care to help get control. Visiting the dentist at six month intervals is also very important in order to prevent dental problems from being overlooked.
As a dentist, Dr. Williams helps her patients understand that proper dental care habits begin at a very young age. As soon as teeth start to grow in, a dentist should be visited. By teaching proper skills to children, they will be better able to prevent gum disease and other dental problems that could eventually lead to expensive treatments.
