An appointment at Prestige Dentistry twice a year is essential to your dental health in Palm Harbor, and to your overall health. By seeing us for a check up, you’ll get the peace of mind that comes with knowing your teeth and gums are healthy – and you’ll have a great smile, to boot.
Dental Visit at Palm Harbor Dental Excellence
A typical appointment is in two parts. First, one of our hygienists gives your teeth a thorough cleaning. That in itself is worth coming in for. But part two, the checkup, is just as important, because we’ll take x-rays, check for any cavities, make sure your gums are healthy, and look for signs of any problems like bruxism, also known as teeth grinding.
Seeing us twice a year is also a great way to protect your dental health in Palm Harbor. We won’t give you a wellness exam like your doctor, of course. But there are more than a hundred systemic diseases that can be detected in the mouth. We can find signs of diseases before you even know about them.
Discussing Dental Hygiene at Home
In between your visits, make sure you take care of your teeth and gums at home. That means a daily regimen of flossing and brushing. We recommend at least twice a day; after every meal is even better. That way you are consistently removing that plaque that is constantly forming on your teeth. Furthermore, wait one hour after eating to brush your teeth. The acids from your meal could cause your enamel to soften, and brushing right after you eat could cause you to damage your dental health in Palm Harbor little by little.
