At Victor H. Burdick, Jr. DDS in Littleton CO, we do everything we can to keep the teeth and gums of our patients clean and healthy. In other words, we really stress dental health: how to get it and how to keep it. One of the best approaches is with preventive dentistry.

Preventive dentistry – or preventative, as some say – combines good dental hygiene at home with regular visits to our office. The goal is avoiding gum disease, tooth decay, and enamel wear.

Twice A Year

As a rule of thumb, we recommend a dental appointment every six months. At each visit, one of our hygienists will inspect and clean your teeth. We may take x-rays, too.

The dentist also does an inspection of your teeth and gums. If there is any new decay we’ll fill it. We’ll also check for any signs of gum disease.

Brush and Floss

At home, you should be brushing your teeth at least twice a day, and flossing at least once. Brushing is easily the most important part of preventive dentistry. Use a toothpaste with fluoride, and has the American Dental Association seal on the tube. Use a soft-bristled brush, and replace it every three months or so.

Flossing your teeth every day is how you clean out the spaces between your teeth. There’s no way a toothbrush can get the gunk that builds up there. If you have any questions about flossing, ask our hygienist for some tips at your next checkup.

Prevention is always the best medicine! At Victor H. Burdick, Jr. DDS in Littleton CO our patients come from Ken Caryl, Englewood, and Centennial for complete general dentistry. Other services include dental implants, and much more. Schedule your next appointment today!
