Preventive Dentistry Advice From Dr. Hunter & The Gang

  • September 15, 2016

Hello and welcome to the Holly Dental Care blog!

Where does the time go? Now that Labor Day is only a memory and the back to school routine has become the new norm for families all over Michigan, we want to use today’s post to help you keep oral health top of mind throughout the craziness of the academic year.

Read on to hear some of our preventive dentistry advice, and then be sure to get in touch with any questions and/or to schedule your autumn checkup in our Holly, MI office.

Prevention Begins At Home (But It Doesn’t End There)

Like it or not, it is up to you to set a good example for your kids. They will be watching you and will pick up on your daily hygiene habits at like brushing, flossing, and rinsing with fluoride. They will also notice if you are lax about such things.

The bad news is that any plaque that is overlooked or is out of reach will harden and become calculus (tartar) over time. That calculus will cause trouble, eating away at the enamel of your teeth, contributing to cavities, tooth loss, and, eventually, bone loss.

In some instances, only a well-trained eye can see what is going on in your mouth before it causes additional pain and expense.

Beyond that, it usually requires special tools that you won’t find behind your bathroom mirror!

The good news is that, we’ve got just what you need to stay healthy all year long. At Holly Dental Care, our preventative treatments include comprehensive oral exams and professional teeth cleanings, dental sealants, fluoride treatments, and more.

Oral Exams And Cleanings Make A Difference

You can only do so much on your own. But our professional grade teeth cleanings are designed to help you stave off cavities and disease, and, rest assured, they are much more pleasant than having to get dental fillings, root canals, gum disease treatments, or extractions further down the road!

Like we said, in addition to the normal stuff, we can also add an extra layer of protection by setting you up with dental sealants and fluoride varnishes. Whatever your needs may be, we will be in tune with the best solution for you!

The Health Of Your Mouth Is In Your Hands!

Oral health really is a partnership. As such, we hope that you have been inspired by today’s post to take the next step towards a healthier smile.
