Why is tooth brushing important?

Cosmetic dentist Dr. Sinclair emphasizes the importance of good oral hygiene, including daily tooth brushing and flossing. A general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sinclair educates his patients on how to brush and floss effectively as part of at home oral hygiene to help them maintain oral health between visits to his Virginia Beach dentist office, Coastal and Cosmetic Dentistry.

Routine preventive dental care and at home oral hygiene practices will help to prevent the development of dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Left untreated, these issues can often lead to more complex dental health problems, including tooth loss.

Brush your teeth! Daily brushing and flossing will go a long way towards keeping your smile clean and healthy! It is also recommended that you visit your local Virginia Beach dentist at least twice per year for a professional dental cleaning and exam: this gives Dr. Sinclair and his staff the opportunity to spot oral health problems in the early stages when conservative treatment can be most effective.
