Caring For Your Smile:
Maintaining good oral health
In most cases, if your gums and teeth are healthy, the American Dental Association recommends 6-month check-ups. When there are gum problems, we will want to see you at shorter intervals, following the guidelines set forth by the American Academy of Periodontology. Your team at Torrington Dental Care will discuss this with you and will tailor a program uniquely designed to meet your needs. In the event that any problems arise, please do not hesitate to contact us – we will be happy to schedule an emergency appointment to take care of your needs.
Healthy gums are not only the best protection against periodontal disease but also the framework of your smile.
The use of dental floss is essential in minimizing gum disease and other oral health problems resulting from the build-up of dental plaque.
Brush your teeth at least twice a day (especially before going to bed at night) with an ADA approved soft bristle brush and toothpaste.
