Dr. Marks believes that oral hygiene is our patient’s first step to a healthy, beautiful smile. We recommend, as does the ADA, effective at-home oral care to include:
- Brushing 2-3 times per day with a fluoride toothpaste
- Flossing once per day
- Maintaining a healthy diet (fruits, vegetables, etc)
- Limiting consumption of sugary foods and beverages (soda, etc)
- Limiting use of alcohol, chewing tobacco, and smoking cigarettes
In addition our hygienists recommend using two additional products– a Sonicare toothbrush and Waterpiks– for your daily at-home oral care. Your overall health will also thank you!
Finally, do not forget to schedule six-month checkups for both you and your family members! The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends routine checkups every six months.
Our professional cleanings by our highly qualified hygienists can be viewed as a preventive measure to destroy harmful bacteria and plaque that creates serious dental and health issues. Call Dr. Marks today to schedule your appointment, we are even open late for your convenience!
