Can we talk about us? You need to come see us, at least every six months for your cleaning and exam. But, we don’t want to get our hearts broken by being the only ones invested in this relationship. We need to know you are committed as well. And you can do that by taking care of your teeth in between visits. We know it sounds like a big commitment, and it is, but its worth it. Help us help you. Be the change you want to see in your mouth. (Insert heartfelt saying here.)
Seriously though, if you have questions about taking care of your smile, you can talk with our dentists, Dr. Martin Trockel, and Dr. Sherry Stevens at Spartan Family Dentistry about good dental hygiene in Bixby, Oklahoma. Some of things we can suggest include:
- Brushing your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste that includes fluoride.
- Flossing at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
- Eating a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
- Maintaining your regular visits to the dentist every six months. During these visits, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to make certain we provide any needed preventive or restorative treatments.
And before you ask, brushing and flossing furiously the night before your appointment doesn’t count. But when you come see us, we can tell you what parts of your mouth may need a little TLC. Give is a call today at 918-366-3777 to set up your appointment.
