Why and How You Should Care For Your Teeth

What Is Preventative Dentistry?

Preventative dentistry involves establishing habits that will keep your teeth healthy and avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear and more. During your regular visit at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry your dental hygienist will point out any issues that you may be having with your oral hygiene. Your hygienist will perform a cleaning, dental exam, an oral cancer exam, and perform an necessary x-rays. We will also evaluate the appearance of your teeth and recommend any aesthetic procedures that will enhance your smile, for example, cosmetic or orthodontic procedures.

What You Can Do To Prevent Tooth Decay

Establishing at-home oral hygiene habits is essential to keeping your teeth healthy. Brushing twice a day for at least two minutes and flossing after eating will help to remove plaque and decay. Plaque is difficult to remove and the best at-home habits may not be enough to keep it a bay. This is why it is so important to schedule regular dental visits and allow our trained staff of oral hygienists to catch any problems that may be lurking before they manifest themselves.

Our recommendation is to visit Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry twice a year for regular cleanings and preventative treatments. By doing this you’ll have less frequent major issues with your oral health.

If you do not have an appointment scheduled please reach out to us by calling 719-598-3502 or send us an email. Here at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry we’re excited to help keep you healthy and happy.

I've been seeing Dr. Holsteen since 1992! The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and they talk to you! They are not robots! (Not to mention they play my favorite oldies station on Pandora when I go in!) I love these professionals because they make you feel at home!
