The importance of regular dental care from your Dentist in Kennesaw, GA

Your daily oral hygiene and regular checkups are vital to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Spending a few minutes twice a day caring for your teeth and keeping regularly scheduled cleaning appointments can prevent cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues.

Daily oral hygiene

Most people do brush their teeth twice a day, but in many cases, all they do is quickly run their bush along the teeth not paying specific attention to each tooth. When the proper technique is used, it should take between two to three minutes to brush your teeth. This involves using short stokes beginning with the outer surface of each tooth, then the inner surface, followed by the chewing surface, and the final step is cleaning the surface of your tongue.

Flossing is a very important part of your oral hygiene regimen because this is the only way to clean the 1/3 of the tooth’s surface that can’t be reached with a toothbrush. Begin with a piece of floss about 18” long, wrap it around your index finger on each hand, leaving about 2” in the middle. Use your thumbs to grasp the floss carefully, work it along the side of each tooth, including where the tooth meets the gum line.

The importance of daily oral hygiene

Your daily oral hygiene not only reduces your risk of cavities, but also of gum disease. If plaque is allowed to accumulate between teeth and at the gum line, the bacteria in the plaque can cause a bacterial infection in the gum tissue. The first phase of gum disease is called gingivitis and is completely reversible. The symptoms include gum tissue that is inflamed and has a tendency to bleed when brushed. If you observe this, it is important that you schedule an appointment with Dr. Vo or Dr. Breckley as soon as possible.

When gingivitis is not treated, it will progress to periodontitis. While periodontitis is controllable, it cannot be reversed. During this phase, the infection damages gum and bone tissue around the teeth. The longer it goes without treatment the worse the damage becomes, and it can ultimately result in tooth loss. Some of the symptoms of periodontitis include those associated with gingivitis along with receding gum tissue, sensitivity, and loose teeth.

Routine dental care

Good dental health requires preventive dental care and good oral hygiene. Neither one alone can ensure your dental health. Professional cleaning is the only way to remove the buildup of tartar that is a contributing factor in the development of gum disease. Along with your cleaning, you will also receive an examination from Dr. Vo or Dr. Breckley, this gives your doctor the opportunity to detect any problems such as cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer; early detection can minimize the damage they can do to your oral health.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
