This is a great year to start working toward the top-notch smile and oral health you deserve. That way you can have the strong and healthy teeth and gums you need to use your mouth with confidence. So, our dentist, Dr. Brent Culpepper, encourages you to make goals for your smile this year. Those goals can be:


-Use the best tools in your oral hygiene routine: These tools should include a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash, and the flossing product you prefer. Each tool should have the American Dental Association Seal of Approval. This stamp proves that it is safe and effective in an oral hygiene routine.


-Attend your checkups regularly: You should visit our office for your routine dental cleaning and exam every six months. This is important because it helps you prevent dental issues, strengthen your tooth enamel, treat any issues if necessary, and more.


-Properly clean the teeth and gums: There is a right and wrong way to clean the smile. Make sure you use the right techniques, otherwise there is a chance you can cause more harm than good.
