Would you like to avoid complicated, expensive, and potentially painful dental procedures? Regular visits to Dr. Barroso and his hygiene department at Legacy Dental ensure both proper preventative care and routine hygiene, allowing you to maintain the good oral health that is necessary for your overall well-being and systemic health. Our superior diagnostics equipment and materials detect any changes to your teeth, tissues, or bone, including cracks, decay, gum disease, or the breakdown of dental restorations. Educating our patients on effective hygiene is the heart of our practice.
Frequent and proper brushing and flossing, along with your regular professional dental cleaning, will help reduce and remove plaque- a contributing factor to tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque is a soft, sticky, colorless bacterial film that grows on the hard surfaces of teeth. These bacteria use the sugar and starch from food particles in the mouth to produce acid. Left to accumulate, this acid produces foul breath, destroys the outer enamel of the tooth, and irritates gums to the point of bleeding.
Brush your teeth at least twice a day, but preferably after every meal. You should use a soft bristled toothbrush or electric toothbrush, and replace it every 3-4 months or as soon as the bristles begin to fray.
A good flossing routine and technique is essential for oral health. Flossing once a day helps prevent gum disease by stimulating your gums and removing food particles and plaque. It allows you to reach areas that your toothbrush cannot, especially those spaces at and below the gum line which can also result in tooth decay. If you don’t floss you’re leaving up to forty percent of your tooth surface untouched and unclean.
Go Rangers, and Go Dr. Barroso! We’ve been using him for 15 years or more, but then you probably know that by looking at my family’s teeth. We all have beautiful smiles because of him!
