Prevention Has Advanced

It’s important to use the right tools in your effort to maintain a fresh and healthy mouth and fight against the diseases that could pose a threat to it.

You want to remove as much of the cavity causing plaque that forms on the surface of your teeth as possible.  Dentists have agreed that an electric toothbrush actually does a better job in removing plaque than the average manual brush.

A lot of people like to finish off their dental care routine by rinsing with a refreshing, flavorsome mouthwash.  Some of these products however, contain alcohol, while others leave a medicinal taste in the mouth.  There are alternative choices available for more sensitive patients.

Dental technology has come up with a type of sugar free candy that is actually good for your kids teeth.  Loloz comes in the form of a lollipop but contains the anti cavity ingredient named Cavabloc which has been tested and proven successful in fending off oral bacteria.

You can have your teeth whitened in your dentist’s office or if you prefer your dentist can provide custom made whitening trays for you to use at home.  Whitening formulas are available in various strengths and will be recommended according to your particular needs.

These products can along with daily brushing, flossing and regular professional care, put you at an advantage in the fight against oral disease.   Find them and more at Deidra Bird Kokel, DDS in Leesburg, VA.  Call the office today @ 703-997-1313.
