Consult Plymouth Ann Arbor Oral & Facial Surgery MI 48170Our patients expect us to help them give their teeth and gums the care needed for optimal oral health. We go to school and learn the things that we need to do this. We have the office and the equipment to help. We are not the only people who have an impact on your oral health.

The most important person when it comes to caring for your oral health is the person you see in the mirror. If you do not know how to do something or what you should do, you need to ask. These are the questions that can help you improve your oral health.

The Top Questions
There are some people who have a never-ending list of questions. There are others that cannot think of the questions when they get to our office. This is a list of the most common questions people need to ask.

•  How often do I need a checkup? People often confuse a checkup and a cleaning. It is best to see us at least once a year for a checkup and twice a year for cleaning.
•  What are the best oral hygiene habits at home? Brushing and flossing properly top the list, but it is also important to eat a healthy diet. Many people use an anti-bacterial rinse in addition to the other habits. It is also a good idea to avoid tobacco use.
•  When should my child get his first visit? - The recommendation is to see a dentist for the first time when the first tooth emerges or at one year of age.
•  Why consider implants? Many people think a missing tooth is no big deal, but it can impact the health of the rest of your teeth and gums. Implants are often the best way to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

The biggest question that you can ask our professionals is also the most important. Ask how you can make sure you maintain good oral health. Our professionals will do more than just tell you to brush and floss regularly.

They will show you how you do it and help you get the right tools to do it. They can take the time to make sure you not only know how to follow good habits, but will also teach you what to look for that signals a possible problem.

Prevention is a key to good oral health, but it is also good to know how to recognize problems in their earliest stages. If you ask questions about how to do this or what you should do, you will improve your oral health for years to come.
