Brush Up: Keep Your Teeth Healthy with Our Prevention Exams

Your oral health begins with clean teeth. Since your smile depends on how well you take care of your teeth, proper oral hygiene habits are essential. At Portway Dentistry, we can help your teeth become healthier and teach you how to clean them properly.

Like an apple a day keeps the doctor away, a brush and some floss will do wonders to your dental health. Although you can maintain the day-to-day cleanliness of your teeth, you'll need professional assistance every six months.

Preventative Exam
When you stop by for a prevention exam, you can expect our staff to treat you kindly and ensure your stay is relaxing. Our prevention exams include:

  • Information about tongue cleaning
  • Teeth cleaning (brushing, removing plaque)
  • Flossing
  • Fluoride treatment
  • X-rays

Our patients are our first priority. At Portway Dentistry, we take great pride in the customer service we provide. We want your visit to be as enjoyable as possible. With regular preventative care you can avoid many of the costly conditions that result from consistent neglect. Our desire is to provide the type of friendly informative service you have come to expect.

Keep in mind, regular trips to our team of dentists will prevent small problems from becoming something more serious.

Preventative Habits
It's up to you to keep your teeth healthy between bi-annual visits. If you regularly brush and floss, avoid tobacco, and maintain a healthy diet, your teeth will be healthier and cleaner year-round. Here are two simple tips you might like to introduce into your oral cleaning routine:

  • Tongue brushing - brush your tongue with a tongue cleaner or a soft-bristled toothbrush. For the most effective clean, stroke in a front-to-back direction.
  • Mouthwashing - use a mouthwash that contains fluoride and plaque-reducing ingredients.
