At Advanced Dental of Las Cruces, New Mexico, we believe that following a few basic steps will go a long way towards keeping you and your family on the road to health and happiness.
Brush Like You Mean It
Your #1 protection against bacteria, disease, and decay is brushing your teeth. Do it twice a day, and do it like you mean it.
There Are Some Strings Attached
Contrary to popular belief, flossing your teeth is every bit as essential as brushing.
As a hygiene tool, dental floss addresses an entirely different area than brushing, namely the realm in between your teeth where plaque and tartar can hide out and build up, eventually causing cavities and worse.
Wash Tooth Loss Away
Mouthwash, when employed properly, is very effective at diminishing bacteria levels and helping fight off the decay that can lead to tooth loss in adults.
Visit The Dentist Twice A Year
It’s true that we miss you when you stay away too long. But that’s not the only reason we want to see you in our office on a regular basis.
Getting professional cleanings and thorough exams twice a year is a major component of keeping your mouth healthy.
Your dentist needs to know what’s going on in your mouth so that we can address any needs that you might not have known about (such as fillings, treatment for gum disease, etc.). Never assume that just because you don’t have any symptoms, all is as it should be.
This healthy habit can also eliminate the need for potentially costly (not to mention, painful) procedures down the road.
The team here at Advanced Dental of Las Cruces wants you to feel comfortable and completely at ease throughout your check up.
We certainly try to make all of your dental solutions as easy as possible.
What To Expect At Advanced Dental
Before anything else happens, you will have the opportunity to see our oral health specialists first for an informal meet and greet.
After you meet the team, you can decide what to do next.
You, obviously, will have the option of staying and having your exam and cleaning, or you can opt to return to start services at a more convenient time.
If you choose to stay and get started, we will complete some digital X-rays, clean your teeth, and screen your mouth for any signs of cancer.
Then we will perform a dental exam and make any relevant recommendations for treatments that might fit your current needs.
