Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
Dr. Philip Shindler, Westlake Village cosmetic dentist, now informs all individuals about the importance of prevention for their oral health. Many oral health problems, such as tooth decay or periodontal disease can be prevented.
The first and most obvious way to prevent oral health problems is with proper brushing and flossing. Everyone should brush twice per day and after consuming foods and beverages that contain sugar. Brushing removes harmful bacteria, the sugars that the bacteria use for fuel, and plaque from the surfaces of the teeth. In addition, flossing at least once per day can remove bacteria, food particles, and plaque from between the teeth. Use dental floss and a toothbrush that are approved by the American Dental Association and toothpaste that contains fluoride. If a patient needs help or has questions about their brushing and flossing technique, Dr. Shindler, Westlake Village porcelain veneers specialist, can help.
Another important way to prevent oral health problems is to visit the dentist for regular checkups. Patients may need to have a regular exam and cleaning as often as every six months, depending on their age and general oral health condition. During the examination, Dr. Shindler, Westlake Village dental implants expert, will examine the gums and teeth and take images to look for signs of cavities and other oral health problems. In addition, he will clean the patient's teeth to remove areas of plaque and tartar before they can develop into tooth decay or periodontal disease.
