Nurturing Your Smile Between Visits 

A vibrant and healthy smile is not only a result of our professional care but also hinges on what transpires between your visits to our practice. Establishing good oral care habits is within reach for anyone committed to dedicating a few minutes each day to their dental well-being. Similar to regular exercise, consistency in your routine builds on past efforts, enhancing your overall health. Setting aside at least two brief sessions for brushing and cleaning between your teeth daily establishes a solid foundation for optimal oral health.

In the ever-expanding realm of oral care products available today, your hygienist at Stonelake Family Dentistry acts as your personal trainer for dental home care. We understand that the myriad of options can be overwhelming, and that’s where we come in. We swiftly narrow down the choices, creating a personalized plan tailored to your needs. Whether a Waterpik would be more effective and reach deeper than traditional floss for your condition, or if a prescription toothpaste is necessary due to a reduced saliva condition – we consider various factors to craft a plan that makes the most of your time and effort.

For patients identified as high-risk for dental problems, we go even further by devising more personalized routines. Simple and cost-effective additions to your routine can transform the oral environment, dramatically reducing disease activity. Take Xylitol, for instance – a naturally-derived sweetener known to decrease cavity activity in both children and adults when used in the right dosages and exposure times.

At Stonelake Family Dentistry, we believe in empowering you with the knowledge and tools necessary for effective home care. Let us guide you towards creating a customized routine that not only fits seamlessly into your lifestyle but also contributes to the radiant and lasting health of your smile. Schedule an appointment with us to embark on the journey to a healthier, more confident you.
