A beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime is our ultimate goal when treating guests.  Your personal home care plays an important role in achieving that goal.  Your personal home care starts by eating balanced meals, reducing the number of snacks you eat, and correctly using the various dental aids that help control the plaque and bacteria that cause dental disease.

Brushing Teeth

Brush your teeth at least twice a day (especially before going to bed at night) with an ADA approved soft bristle brush and toothpaste.

  1. Place the brush at a 45 degree angle to the gums and gently brush using a small, circular motion, ensuring that you always feel the bristles on the gums.
  2. Brush the outer, inner, and biting surfaces of each tooth.
  3. Use the tip of the brush to clean the inside of the front teeth.
  4. Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.

Electric toothbrushes are also recommended. They are easy to use and can remove plaque efficiently. Simply place the bristles of the electric brush on your gums and teeth and allow the brush to do its job, several teeth at a time.

Flossing

Daily flossing is the best way to clean between the teeth and under the gumline. Flossing not only helps clean these spaces, it disrupts plaque colonies from building up, preventing damage to the gums, teeth, and bone.

  1. Take 12-16 inches (30-40cm) of dental floss and wrap it around your middle fingers, leaving about 2 inches (5cm) of floss between the hands.
  2. Using your thumbs and forefingers to guide the floss, gently insert the floss between teeth using a sawing motion.
  3. Curve the floss into a “C” shape around each tooth and under the gumline. Gently move the floss up and down, cleaning the side of each tooth.

Floss holders are recommended if you have difficulty using conventional floss.

Rinsing

It is important to rinse your mouth with water after brushing, and also after meals if you are unable to brush. If you are using an over-the-counter product for rinsing, it’s a good idea to consult with your dentist or dental hygienist on its appropriateness for you.

Use other dental aids as recommended by your dentist or dental hygienist: Interdental brushes, rubber tip stimulators, tongue cleaners, irrigation devices, fluoride, medicated rinses, etc., can all play a role in good dental home care.

COVID-19 SCHEDULE UPDATE

As we continue to monitor the rapidly changing landscape around the coronavirus (COVID-19), our primary goal is for the safety and well-being of our patients and team members.

In response to the recommendations from the American Dental Association and the North Carolina Dental Board, WE ARE OPEN for dental work deemed Emergency Care. Emergency care is defined as trauma, broken tooth, pain, swelling, or infection.

All other, non-emergency care will be scheduled for a later date.

We have made this decision for the health and safety of you and our team members,

If you believe you have a dental emergency, instead of going to your local hospital emergency room we would prefer you contact us in order to avoid overwhelming healthcare workers dealing with those suffering from the coronavirus.

In the event you have a dental emergency during this time, please call for an appointment OR schedule a virtual consultation to speak with a doctor from the comfort of your home.

We have teams in several locations prepared to treat dental emergencies.

We will update this schedule and availability as more information becomes available.

Our commitment is to provide urgent dental care in a clean, safe and efficient manner during this turbulent time.

We are available for you.

Stay safe and healthy and we’ll see you at the office again soon!
