Our Registered Dental Hygienist, Julie Fox, is recognized at our practice for her kindness and gentleness with patients. She pays attention to detail and will provide you with a customized home-care routine to prevent cavities and fight against gum disease, or periodontitis. We also provide scaling and root planing for deep cleaning under the gum to remove tartar.
At Reichel Dental, we use and highly recommend SuperSmile for our patients. This toothpaste uses Calprox, which gently and safely removes stains. Patients love how it gently whitens their teeth, giving you noticeable results with continuous use.
At-Home Oral Care
Make sure you are brushing your teeth twice a day!
Use a soft toothbrush and make sure you are reaching all parts of your mouth, including the backs of your back molars and your tongue. Use a toothpaste with gentle materials, such as SuperSmile, and make sure it contains fluoride, which helps strengthen teeth.
Flossing cleans out plaque, food and grime from in between your teeth that your toothbrush can’t reach. Not flossing can cause cavities and is just as bad as not brushing!
Avoid too many sugary foods and drinks.
When sugar stays in your mouth for a long period of time, it creates acid that wears away at your tooth enamel, producing bacteria that leaves your teeth exposed to cavities.
Schedule a teeth cleaning twice a year.
It is recommended that you see a dental hygienist for a cleaning about every six months to avoid gum disease and to check for cavities, decay and other oral problems.
