Maintaining a regular schedule of cleaning, x-rays and oral cancer screenings is the best way to head off major dental problems. Home care, such as brushing after every meal and flossing daily are regular activities that should be part of everyone’s daily routine. But home care can only go so far. Professional cleanings performed by a dental hygienist deep clean to make sure that no persistent problems take hold and turn into infections or problems with teeth or gums.

The best way to teach dental health habits to your children is to model the behavior. If they grow up seeing their parents prioritizing home care, both brushing and flossing, it becomes part of their daily habits as well. The same goes for dental appointments, including check-ups and cleanings. The days of being afraid of the dentist can be over! At Legends Dental, patient comfort is a priority and your children will know that from their first visit.
