Your smile is prone to tooth decay. In fact, if you’re not careful, tooth decay can attack your smile and you can suffer from severe pain and perhaps tooth extraction. It’s best to avoid dental cavities as much as possible. To help you avoid them, our dental team has some tips for you. We encourage you to do the following things on a regular basis:

-Clean your smile: Each day, you will need to brush your teeth twice and floss and rinse your mouth once. Doing these things will help you clean your smile and will also kill the bacteria in your mouth that are waiting to decay your teeth.

-Use fluoride: Fluoride is a beneficial mineral that strengthens and nourishes your teeth. So, make sure you take advantage of our professional fluoride treatment when you come into our office. We also recommend using fluoride each day by using fluoride toothpaste and fluoride mouthwash.

-Visit your dentist: It is vital that you visit your dentist every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. These appointments allow our dental team to deeply clean your smile, remove plaque from the surfaces of your teeth, and examine your smile for any apparent dental problems.

By doing these things, you will have the strong and healthy smile you deserve. We are here to help you prevent tooth decay as much as possible, and we encourage you to call our office at 505.592.0477 if you have any questions or concerns about tooth decay in Farmington, New Mexico.
