You should never take your teeth for granted, as they continue to serve you well as you smile, chew and speak to your heart’s delight. If you don’t take care of your teeth, you may lose them forever.
Here’s a fun fact. It only takes 24-hours for plaque to harden into tartar. That is why Dr. Brusky encourages all patients in Howard, De Pere, Shawano, Seymour, and Pulaski to brush and floss twice per day.
Gum Disease Sufferers Require Extra Thorough Care
If you suffer from gum disease, Dr. Brusky or his hygienists will recommend periodontal treatment. This involves regular periodontal cleanings about three to four times per year. These appointments will ensure that your mouth remains healthy for the long term.
During these appointments, your dental hygienist will measure the pockets in your gums to confirm that they are healthy. Plaque and tartar will also be removed during this time, keeping the severe effects of the disease at bay.
Regular appointments also include x-rays once per year, an examination for tooth decay, evaluation of existing restorations, and an oral cancer screening. Dr. Brusky’s hygienist will provide you with instructions for proper at-home care to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible between your regular treatments.
There’s Nothing Like Having Your Teeth Polished
The hygienist will follow up your appointments with a thorough teeth polishing, ensuring you leave the office with a clean and healthy mouth you can’t wait to show off.
