Oral health impacts your self-confidence and overall wellness. Good oral hygiene begins with home care:
- Brush at least twice a day with a soft toothbrush.
- Floss daily.
- Follow your dentist’s advice to use other aids – mouth rinses, dental irrigation, or a mechanical toothbrush.
- Don’t smoke.
- Eat a healthy diet.
- Visit us for regular check-ups.
The American Dental Association recommends that the average person see a dentist every six months; more often for patients who don’t practice good home care, have bleeding gums, smoke, like soft drinks, or have diabetes. We’ll work out a schedule to fit your situation.
A check-up at Platte Valley Dental Care includes much more than a cleaning. New patients are sometimes surprised at our thoroughness – Dr. Staci Blaha examines the face, neck, lymph nodes, saliva, bite, and movement of the jaw.
