What can I do on my own to keep my teeth healthy

You can help prevent dental health complications by making sure to schedule your routine check-ups every six months, and by maintaining an excellent at-home oral care routine that includes regular brushing and flossing.

Sugary foods contribute to the bacteria that causes cavities. By eating a nutritious diet and limiting your sugar intake, you can avoid cavities. Untreated cavities can lead to severe complications, including loss of teeth, gum tissue, or bone.

Good oral health contributes to good overall health. To schedule a routine dental exam or any other general dentistry service, call Lakeside Family Dentistry today, or make an appointment online.
