Dentist in Warrenville

Learning the proper way to care for your teeth and gums combined with regular professional cleanings are usually all that is needed to preserve a healthy mouth. Our team can provide you with both: dental education and professional cleanings.

Over 75 percent of Americans over age 35 have some form of gum disease. Gum disease is worth preventing. If you have gum disease, it will be detected during a cleaning appointment. Upon detection, Dr. Potempa will be able to recommend a treatment plan.

Professional dental cleanings are important for maintaining great oral health. However, it is vital that you continue good dental hygiene at home as well.

Dr. Potempa recommends that you brush your teeth at least twice per day and floss daily. This helps prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues.

There are additional ways to help keep teeth strong and healthy. Toothpastes and mouth rinses with fluoride are available over-the-counter. Eating a balanced diet and limiting sugary snacks can also contribute to good oral health.

When you can, drink a glass of water after meals. This can help wash away sugars from foods and drinks. If something you eat or drink contains acids, such as sodas or candies, wait 30 minutes before brushing. This will allow your saliva time to neutralize the acids and protect your teeth.

Healthy dental hygiene habits can help keep your teeth strong and beautiful. If you have any questions about your current dental hygiene routine, please contact us.
