Tips to Prevent Gum Disease, Tooth Decay, Cavities, and Tooth Loss

Dental cleanings are a routine part of your preventive care exam and the foundation of lifelong oral health.  Dental cleanings are a simple, painless process that can help prevent the development of gum disease, tooth decay, cavities, and tooth loss. Helping our patients achieve optimal oral health is a priority for our team at Solberg & Miller Dentistry in Altamonte Springs, FL.

We recommend patients visit the dentist every six months for a preventive care visit which includes a comprehensive dental exam, advanced screenings for complex dental problems, and a professional dental cleaning. Our goal is to help patients maintain a healthy, functional smile through comprehensive family dental care. Our team of dentists works with patients of all ages to help them make informed decisions regarding their oral health.

Tips To Develop Good Oral Hygiene Habits

  • Brush your teeth for at least two minutes, twice daily.
  • Floss daily.
  • Use mouthwash, as it can go where toothbrushes and floss cannot.
  • Change your toothbrush when you visit Solber & Miller Dentistry biannually!

When Should You Visit the Dentist?

  • We recommend that you visit Maitland Ave. Smile Co. every six months.
  • Additionally, schedule an appointment if you notice signs or symptoms like:
    • Red, tender or swollen gums
    • Gums that bleed when you brush or floss
    • Gums that begin pulling away from your teeth
    • Loose permanent teeth
    • Changes in the way your top and bottom teeth align with each other
    • Unusual sensitivity to hot and cold
    • Persistent bad breath or an unusual taste in your mouth
    • Changes in the way your dentures or partial dentures fit
    • Difficulty swallowing
    • Mouth ulcers or sores that don’t heal

Our dental team can work with you to improve your oral health and maintain a healthy smile.
