Looking after your teeth with our dentist Brentwood

It is important that you visit our dentist Brentwood at least once every six months and more often if possible so that you can maintain healthy teeth and gums for the rest of your life. During different stages of your life, your teeth become more prone to decay, disease or damage. It is important that you always maintain a good dental hygiene routine at home. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing at least once, using a suitable mouthwash and maintaining a healthy diet as well as avoiding poor lifestyle choices such as smoking or excessive drinking. This is a great step towards maintaining good dental health for the rest of your life. However, despite maintaining excellent dental hygiene at home, plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth if you do not visit our dentist Brentwood frequently. This is particularly the case for those with crooked or wonky teeth. You may be brushing and flossing on a daily basis however plaque and tartar can build up in the awkward spaces between overlapping teeth or overcrowded teeth as well as underneath the gum line and cause tooth decay and gum disease. If you visit our dentist Brentwood on a regular basis then we will refer you to the hygienist who will remove any plaque and tartar from your teeth as well as look for any signs of gum disease so that a treatment plan can be put together immediately and your teeth and gum health can be restored. dentist-brentwood
