At Door County Dental Care, we believe the first step to a healthy smile is through great oral hygiene. We recommend brushing 2-3 times a day using a fluoride toothpaste, flossing one time a day, keeping a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, etc., limiting the intake of sugary foods and beverages (like soda), and limiting alcohol and tobacco (smoking or chewing) usage . The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends routine check-ups every six months for those ages four and older. Professional dental cleanings can be viewed as a preventive measure to destroy bacteria and plaque that create dental and health problems. The dental team at Door County Dental Care is here to help assist you with all your dental needs!
