There are several reasons why we should regularly visit a family dentist. The first reason is that our teeth need to be professionally cleaned at regular intervals. Although we feel that brushing two times a day is enough to remove the food particles that get lodged in the crevices of our teeth, we need the services of a family dentist in Tucson because we cannot clean the microscopic articles that get lodged in the fissures of the enamel layer of the teeth. In some cases, the fissures go into the dentin layer of the teeth. These particles can be removed only through bleaching and laser treatment. The good news is that these cleaning sessions make our teeth whiter too.

You must try to find a really good dentist near Tucson if you live near Tucson because it will be difficult for you to regularly visit your dentist if you he does not have a clinic close to your home.

You may actually go to a Tucson family dentist if you need to have your teeth whitened. The advantage of getting your teeth whitening done by professionals is that the results are better and the risks are lower. Since professionals use more powerful oxidizing agents than the ones that come with the do-it-yourself teeth whitening kits, the bleaching is better. Moreover, the chances of the bleaching agent affecting your gums or other parts of the mouth are also lower because dentists make the covering of the teeth separately for each patient. In the do-it-yourself kits, the same mould is used by everybody and thus the chances of the active ingredient seeping out are higher.

Tucson Family dentists may also perform the more complex dental procedures that are generally carried out by experts. For example, some Tucson family dentists can offer treatment related to cavities and broken or chipped teeth. Usually they have the training required for performing fillings and providing dentures. Even if they do not have the expertise to perform the very complex procedures, it may be a good idea to consult your Tucson family dentist before you go for a cosmetic dentistry procedure like smile design.

There are several ways of finding a good family dentist. The first thing that you should check while choosing a dentist is the qualifications of the person. These days it may be counter-productive to go to a professional who is not familiar with the latest advances in dental technology.

Dental Tips

How often should I brush and floss my teeth?

Ideally, you should brush after every meal but, you should brush your teeth twice a day. You should floss between your teeth at least once a day.

How often should I replace my toothbrush?

Every three to four months or sooner if the bristles become frayed.

How to: Brush more effectively

  • Use a soft-bristled brush.
  • Angle the brush at a 45-degree angle against your gums.
  • Gently move the brush with short circular strokes against the outside surface of your teeth.
  • Repeat the process on the inside and top of all your teeth.
  • Don't forget to brush the top of your tongue.

How to: Floss more effectively

  • Use about 12 inches of floss.
  • Wrap one end of it around your forefinger several times.
  • Wrap the other end around your other forefinger and use each thumb on the appropriate hand to make tight.
  • Gently guide the floss between the spaces of your teeth being careful not to push down on your gums directly with a lot of force.
  • Form a ā€˜Cā€™ around the tooth and rub the floss against one side of the tooth in an up/down motion.
  • Then form a 'C' and the other side and move in an up/down motion.
  • Repeat on your next set of teeth.
