Teeth for LifeHere at All Family Dental Care, we are dedicated to the health of your teeth and mouth.

In order to keep your teeth for your entire life, you need to take care of them. Routine brushing and flossing, along with routine care from a dentist, are really important.

It is important to brush your teeth at least twice daily. Many people try to brush their teeth after every meal, when possible. Flossing every day is also important to remove any buildup that is stuck between your teeth. Rinsing with a good antibacterial mouthwash will help to keep bacteria (and infection) at bay.

Getting routine care at your dentist’s office is also important. With a thorough examination and x-rays, we will look for any problems you may have, such as malocclusions, cavities, gum disease, and many others. We will monitor potential problems so that we can fix them early, if possible. We may also give you more advice on what you can do at home to help.

After your examination, we will then polish and clean your teeth. We will remove any buildup that is on your teeth and underneath your gums, which people are often unable to reach just with regular brushing. If you have gingivitis or any infection, a professional cleaning is necessary to fight the infection.

It is always helpful to know how many teeth you should have. Children have twenty primary teeth. After you lose those, you should have all of your thirty-two permanent teeth by the time that you are twenty-one years old. At each visit, we will monitor your teeth so that you can keep them for your whole life.
