When you’re trying to figure out how to best approach your dental care, you may find that you’re uncertain about the whole package. Is home care most important? Is your professional care the part that really ensures your smile remains healthy? As a matter of fact, your Riverside dentist explains that combining home care and professional care is your ticket to a healthy smile. For those looking for a streamlined explanation regarding the essentials, allow your dentist to offer the info you need most.

What Should My Professional Dental Care Include?

Your professional care with us should include prevention always. Then, if you need anything else, it should include additional care. Here’s what your Riverside dentist recommends in an easy-to-understand list:

  • Every single patient needs to see us for preventive care visits. These should happen once every six months, which means we will see you for a cleaning as well as a checkup two times a year.
  • Additional treatments may include restorative care, tooth replacement, orthodontics, oral surgery, and cosmetic treatments. If something is wrong with your smile, allow us to treat it. As for the way your smile looks, cosmetic improvements are all personal preference.

What Should My Home Care Include?

Just as significant as your professional dental care is what you’re doing at home. You cannot rely on only one but must practice both. Your home care is easy to accomplish and includes the following recommendations by your Riverside dentist:

  • Brush your smile twice daily
  • Floss your smile once daily
