The American Dental Association was founded to help people preserve their oral health throughout the course of their lives. This is done through a series of guidelines, recommendations, and information available to the public.
One of their most important recommendations calls for brushing your teeth twice and flossing once each day. This daily oral hygiene routine is designed to clean away plaque and residual food material before it can promote periodontal disease and tooth decay problems.
They also stress that you should only use quality oral hygiene products. You should always look for the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance before purchasing any oral hygiene product. This small logo on the package signifies that it has been thoroughly researched and tested by the ADA for safe and effective oral use.
The ADA further recommends having a dental exam and cleaning performed by a dentist twice each year. Each of these appointments at Crosby Dental Center starts with one of our dental hygienists thoroughly cleaning your teeth. Dr. Jim Nored & Annette Gemp will then examine your mouth for signs of gum disease, cavities, and oral cancer.
If they find a problem, Dr. Jim Nored & Annette Gemp will present you with the most applicable treatment method. This might also include preventative measures like a fluoride treatment or dental sealants. If you live in the Houston, Texas, area and you have oral hygiene concerns, you should call 281-328-3569 to schedule a checkup at Crosby Dental Center today!
