Preventive Dental Care in Greensboro

You want: To keep your bright and healthy smile and maintain good oral health.

Greensboro dentist, Dr. Scott Welch recommends:
  • Practicing good oral hygiene at home, brushing with a soft-bristled brush and brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, and flossing carefully between all teeth once daily. (Mouthwash also can help remove plaque and decay-causing food particles, but it shouldn't replace flossing your teeth.)
  • Eating a balanced diet filled with healthy, nutritious foods. As much as possible, avoid sugary foods and drinks. If you can't brush your teeth after drinking a cola or eating sweets, at least rinse your mouth out thoroughly with water.
  • Making appointments to come in for a professional tooth cleaning and overall mouth checkup at our Greensboro dental office every six months. Regular dental checkups help keep your smile bright and avoid potential dental concerns. If you wait too long between checkups, small dental problems can grow into big ones!
