All patients need to take care of their oral health. While at-home care like brushing and flossing plays an important role, you also need regular checkups and professional dental hygiene services. Dr. Richard Wilczek in Prince George offers patients the necessary care and education they need to maintain optimum health. Good oral hygiene is key to maintaining healthy gums and teeth.
Brushing Your Teeth
Brushing is recommended at least twice a day. We encourage brushing after each meal, because bacteria can become more active soon after eating. If you have any questions about maintaining healthy brushing habits, please feel free to speak with us during your next visit.
Flossing is important to reach the areas where your toothbrush cannot. It can reduce the buildup of plaque between your teeth and reduce the risk of gum disease.
Brushing and flossing are important to keeping your mouth healthy, but these measures do not remove all stains or plaque on your teeth. At the office of Dr. R. Wilczek, we recommend coming in for a professional cleaning every 6 months. Contact us to schedule a convenient appointment.
Dental Care for Children
Letting your child become acquainted with your dental office is an important way to establish healthy dental care habits. It also allows dentists to perform visual inspections and provide instructions for optimal hygiene practices. Checkups early on can detect any possible problems and allows for the review of your child’s oral development. We recommend bringing your child to the dentist when they are at 1 year of age.
Even serious problems, like missing teeth or a misaligned bite, can be resolved with professional care. If you have missing teeth, talk to our dentists about implants, which look like natural teeth and last a lifetime. You can also choose orthodontics to align your teeth. This procedure offers patients a straighter, healthier smile. Additionally, some patients opt for teeth whitening to boost their appearance even further.
