When what you want is a very healthy smile, which is usually what all of our Silver City, NM patients want, there’s not really any uncertainty about what you need to do. That is, there’s no wiggle room regarding the particulars. There very well may be some uncertainty on your side of things if you don’t feel clear about the requirements. Fortunately, you have access to our team of dental professionals who will be more than happy to guide you, so you know just what you need to do (as well as when and how to do it) to maintain excellent oral health.

Gathering Your Dental Hygiene Collection

Keeping your smile healthy means doing the things you need to do in order to avoid common concerns like gingivitis and tooth decay. The first step should be a stop at your local drugstore (or, you can even purchase what you need online for extremely easy shopping!). Did you know that dental hygiene makes up most of the protection that you offer your oral health? To be sure you are ready to brush and floss, you must always have the following on hand:

  • A toothbrush that has soft bristles and that is preferably accepted by the ADA (American Dental Association)
  • A tube of toothpaste with fluoride
  • Dental floss

Calling Our Practice To Set Up Visits

Next, in order to enjoy oral health, you will also need care from our team. Did you realize that without professional preventive care from us, you aren’t completing the protection your teeth, gums, and other tissues require? It’s true. So, to prepare for this, remember that a phone call is in order. Fortunately, this preparation is simple. Tell us when you’d like to come in for visits for a cleaning and checkup and we will secure your appointment!

Setting Aside Time For Hygiene And Visits

Of course, in addition to buying your dental hygiene products and calling us to set up visits, you will need to do one more thing to prepare: You will need to set aside time. For your home care, you’ll need to make sure you have time every morning and evening to brush and floss, otherwise you may become prone to forgetting or avoiding it. You’ll also need to set aside time for visits, so you see us twice a year.
