It’s Better To Prevent A Cavity Than Fill One

how to prevent cavities Timonium

At Steven W. Hayood in Timonium, we are passionate about preventing oral health problems before they start, with general dentistry.

The best way to do that is to establish a dental health regimen and stick to it. That means brushing and flossing twice a day, and coming into our office twice a year for a checkup and cleaning.

You might wonder why you need to see us twice a year, if you take good care of your teeth at home. The answer is that even with scrupulous flossing and brushing, no system is perfect; there are always places that your floss and brush will not reach. Not only that, we can check for issues that you may not even suspect are there. Many dental problems aren’t noticeable or cause any pain when they are in the early stages.

For the at-home regimen, we recommend that you replace your toothbrush every few months. We also recommend using toothpaste and mouth wash with fluoride. You might think that fluoride is just for young teeth, but they can strengthen and protect enamel at any age.

Above all, see Dr. Steven W. Haywood in Timonium twice a year for a checkup and professional cleaning. If your teeth and gums are healthy, but you don’t like your smile, you may want to consider cosmetic dentistry, like teeth whitening or our same day smile makeover.
