At Brush Dental, we believe one of the best types of dentistry is preventative dentistry. Good oral habits at home combined with regular dental visits can keep your teeth and gums safe and build a foundation for a healthy smile. By keeping up on your dental care, you can avoid dental emergencies and unexpected dental problems. Children, teens and adults can get the dental care that they need at Brush Dental! Our team has much experience working with patients at every age and throughout every stage of their dental development. If you are looking for a family dentist in Wabash, IN, we’ve got you covered.
At a regular dental check-up, you will receive a thorough dental cleaning, detailed examination and x-rays as needed. A professional cleaning every six months is important in removing the plaque and tartar buildup that brushing alone may not reach. Over time, plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Professional cleanings help keep your smile on the right track. Your dentist will also examine your teeth and gums for any signs of concern. X-rays will also be taken when necessary and your dentist will be able to detect any other dental issues by seeing deeper into your smile. Fluoride treatments and dental sealants are also available to help strengthen and protect your teeth.
Preventative Dental Care
To help prevent problems fluoride treatments and sealants are available at our office. These protect the tooth enamel from bacteria, acting like a shield in hard to reach areas of the mouth. At-home dental care is also very important to the health of your smile. Brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily is essential in keeping your teeth and gums safe from decay and infection. Avoiding sugary foods until you can brush soon after is also a good way to prevent cavities. If you have young children, helping them brush their teeth properly until they can care for their smile on their own will give them a good foundation for building healthy dental habits. A combination of at-home dental care and regular dental check-ups is a good way to maintain a healthy smile for life!
