The New Year is just around the corner. We hope it is full of joyful moments for you, your family, and your friends. In those moments, we want you to have healthy smiles.

To that end, here are four tips for protecting your teeth from our team in Huntsville, AL.

Keep Up Your Daily Routine

Maintain your daily oral care habits. Brush your teeth twice per day and floss between your teeth and gums every day. This removes harmful bacteria, plaque, and food particles and reduces your risk of developing cavities.

Visit the Dentist

No matter how well you brush and floss, you aren’t doing it perfectly every time. None of us do. This is why you should come by our office a few times each year for professional cleanings and exams. Our team at Jennifer Perkins DDS will remove plaque and tartar and check of any signs of potential problems.

Take Action if You See Trouble

Don’t ignore that dark spot on your tooth. Don’t pretend like your gums aren’t bleeding, either. If you are showing signs of tooth decay or gum disease, it is better to treat them in the early stages before they can lead to painful tooth infections or tooth loss.

Restore Your Smile

Over the course of a lifetime, a lot of things can happen to your smile. Chips, cracks, and breaks are common. So are lost teeth. If you have any of those problems right now, talk to us to discover how restorative dentistry can give you back a complete and healthy smile.
