You deserve to have a strong and healthy senior smile this spring, especially because having such a smile can help you enjoy the spring season without having to worry about dental complications. Our dentists, Dr. Brock Barras and Dr. Christy Barras, are happy to help you reach the hardy smile you deserve by giving you the tips you need, which are:

-Visit our office: When you come in for your appointment, our dental team will deeply clean your smile, removing plaque and tartar from your teeth and gum line to help prevent dental issues. One of our dentists will also thoroughly examine your entire mouth. If a problem is detected, our dentists will provide the treatment you need to have the spring smile you want.

-Keep up on oral hygiene: Brushing your teeth twice a day, as well as flossing and rinsing once a day, are very important to care for your smile, so make sure to complete them regularly. These habits can help you maintain a clean, healthy and strong smile.

-Clean your appliances: If you use oral appliances, like dentures, partial dentures and retainers, then you need to clean them regularly. This is important because they can harbor plaque, which, when you wear your appliance, can promote dental issues, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Make sure to clean your oral appliances often.
