Hygiene at Home
Video: Save Your Gums from Bacteria
At Dentistry For Madison, Dr. Jay Hazen uses laser gum treatment to deal with periodontal issues. Many patients have some type of gum disease, and some are unaware of it completely until it becomes painful. Dr. Hazen is able to eliminate the bacteria in a patient's gums with the help of a special laser, helping many get rid of their gum disease at his Madison practice.Enlarge VideoView All Videos
The habits you form at home will have the biggest long-term impact on your oral health. Brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing at least twice a day will remove plaque and bacteria and significantly reduce your risk for gum disease, tooth decay, and other more serious conditions.
Your diet also plays a role in the health of your teeth, and by eating a variety of healthy foods and reducing your sugar intake, fewer decay-causing acids will build up in your mouth.
Smoking or chewing tobacco causes bad breath, tooth decay, and tooth discoloration, and can lead to oral, pharyngeal, laryngeal, and esophageal cancer. Choosing not to smoke will benefit your oral and overall health, as well as the health of your loved ones.
Starting children off with a dental hygiene regimen early is one of the most important steps to having good dental hygiene for life. Teaching kids about the value of brushing and flossing at an early age will encourage them to make their health a priority when they are old enough to maintain a routine on their own. Dentistry For Madison and our team of general dentistry specialists can help you and your family establish an at-home oral health plan that suits your lifestyle and meets your needs.
Hygiene in Our Office
Early detection of tooth decay and gum disease will make treatment a much easier process. A thorough exam and professional cleaning with Dr. Hazen and Dr. Karls will help you control plaque and bacteria build-up that is hard to reach with your toothbrush at home. Routine checkups are an investment for your health and will help you avoid the high fiscal and physiological costs of extensive repair or reconstruction.
Our approach to preventive care goes beyond routine cleanings. We utilize technologically advanced X-rays, diagnostic imaging, and oral cancer screenings that all contribute to a healthier, happier you.
