dental care

Oral hygiene is more than just brushing and flossing. It includes good nutrition, eating the foods that keep your body healthy and avoid damage to your teeth. Safe lifestyle choices regarding smoking, and drug and alcohol use; oral cancer screenings; and prevention of gum disease.

You can rely on us, Douglas Harty DDS PC and Dr. Sherri Wilson, to provide professional care and advice to keep your mouth in the pink and white. But good oral hygiene requires your commitment to home care also. The benefits are well worth the few minutes you’ll devote to it each day.

Dental care is vitally important to your overall health, and it doesn’t have to be complicated.
 

  • Brush your teeth

  • Vertically (not side-to-side) from gum line down, including tongue and gums

  • Brush twice a day.  At least morning and before bed; after every meal is better

  • Floss around each tooth

  • Floss daily

  • Get a professional cleaning every six months

  • Have a dental professional clean, polish, and examine your mouth


Our goal is to help you keep your teeth healthy and attractive for a lifetime. Regular visits for cleaning and examinations can head off most situations before they become problems. But if a problem does arise, we’re here to answer questions, provide advice, cure, and restore.
