Caring For The Teeth You Want To Keep

WHY IS DENTAL CARE AND MAINTENANCE on your teeth so important? One of the most obvious reasons is that it helps you keep your smile healthy for life. Your smile is what the rest of the world sees when they look at you so it’s important to be proud of what you have to share! However, it isn’t just about the way you look—it’s also about your health and the way you feel.

One of the best ways to dramatically reduce your risk of getting gum disease is through daily maintenance by proper brushing (for at least 2 minutes) AND correct flossing techniques. Don’t worry though, we understand that some things just can’t be helped. If you bite into a crispy apple and loose part of your filling our doctors at Elizabethtown Dental will be right there to help.

We know we say it alot…Make sure you come in for regular checkups and cleanings.” But, there’s more to this request than just an offer of a free toothbrush…

Studies continue to link your oral health to your overall health, and visiting one of our highly acclaimed Dentists is just as important as visiting your family doctor.

We’ve all heard of oral diseases like oral cancer and gum disease, but did you know that there are other health issues that can also manifest themselves initially in your mouth? By visiting our practice regularly, we will be able to catch these potentially larger problems before they get out of hand—problems you may not even realize you have.

For Dr. White, mouths are a huge part of everyday life. He stares into them every day and knows a lot about how they work and how to keep them healthy so be sure to keep those regularly scheduled visits with him and his team. We want to keep you smiling!
