Practicing good dental hygiene can lead to more than just healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. It does a lot for your general health, too, even helping you avoid such problems as stroke, heart disease and diabetes!
Therefore, we recommend that you visit your South Texas Dental office at least twice a year for a professional dental cleaning and examination, one that will remove the plaque and tartar that build up no matter how good your oral hygiene practices are at home.
And between visits, you should be brushing your teeth twice a day with an American Dental Association-accepted fluoride toothpaste and flossing between your teeth at least once a day to get rid of the food particles and bacteria your brush can’t reach. During your visit, we’ll be glad to show you the proper way to brush and floss your teeth to keep them as healthy as possible for as long as possible.
At South Texas Dental, you will always get a thorough, professional dental cleaning and examination. And that includes all members of your family, since we also have children’s dentists on staff who have the specialized training and skills required to treat children starting as young as 6 months old.
And remember, dental cleanings and exams, like most of our other services, are covered by Medicaid, CHIP and most dental insurance.
