Dental Checkups & Hygiene

Dental checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile. Even with the best home care regimen in the world, most people’s teeth and gums will eventually succumb to the effects of time, wear-and-tear and bacteria build-up.

Under the attentive eye of family dentist Dr. Roper, areas of decay are dealt with immediately. With semi-annual checkups, or more frequent visits for people with gum disease or other serious conditions, plaque can be removed before it turns into tartar, and bacteria can be removed before they endanger natural enamel.

Dr. Roper uses state-of-the-art technology to catch even the slightest potential problems before they do any damage. Our DIAGNOdent laser is used for ultimate cavity detection – it can find an estimated 50% more undetected decay than previous diagnostic methods!

We also use Digital X-Rays for extreme precision in cavity detection and diagnosis.

Regular dental checkups combined with great home care can help you build a strong defense against tooth decay and damage.

Follow these home care tips to keep your smile shiny and bright:

  • Brush and floss daily and after snacks
  • Remember to carry a travel toothbrush in your purse or car
  • Avoid excessive sugary snacks
  • Avoid regular soda and sugar-based beverages (hint: high fructose corn syrup is sugar!)
  • Take your time during brushing and make sure you spend time on all tooth surfaces
  • When flossing, use an up-and-down motion after you get into each groove, moving the floss against both surfaces and curving it around each tooth
  • Use fluoridated rinses and mouthwashes to help minimize bacteria build-up
  • Never skip a dental visit, or put off scheduling them. Cavities can develop quickly!
  • Use a soft-bristled tooth brush to protect enamel
  • If you experience any pain, soreness or other symptoms, schedule a dental visit right away
  • If you experience soreness in the jaw, face or neck, visit our neuromuscular dentist
  • If you have problems with bad breath or snoring, schedule a visit
