Preventive Dentistry at Home
The foundation of preventive dentistry is built at home with your daily dental hygiene and teeth cleaning routine.
The basics of a sound dental hygiene regimen include brushing your teeth at least twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. At least one a day after brushing, flossing is recommended to eliminate remaining food particles that tend to become trapped in hard-to-reach spaces between the teeth.
Following brushing and flossing, you may wish to rinse with an anticavity, antiseptic mouthwash to flush lingering food particles, kill additional bacteria and leave you with fresh breath.
Dental Exams and Teeth Cleanings
Your regular check-ups and professional teeth cleanings are also vital aspects of preventive dentistry. The American Dental Association recommends that most children and adult patients receive a dental exam once every six months.
These exams allow Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar to monitor your oral health and recommend treatment at the earliest possible stages of any dental problems. Your check-ups also include a thorough teeth cleaning to remove plaque that can accumulate even with regular brushing and flossing.
To schedule your next check-up and teeth cleaning, please contact Drs. Chin & Pharar Dentistry. We are proud to serve patients from the greater Las Vegas, Summerlin and Henderson, Nevada, areas.
