After the examination, you will be provided with a detailed summary that outlines any existing dental problems and proposed treatment. 
If you don’t yet have a family dentist in the Chesapeake, VA area, there is no better place to bring your family for treatment than Atlantic Dental Care. They will not only take care of your family’s in-office dental care, but will also educate you so that you can provide the best at-home care as well, in between visits. The cornerstone to a good at-home oral hygiene regimen is proper brushing and flossing. Practicing excellent dental hygiene avoids unhealthy teeth and costly dental treatments. Some at-home tips include:
- Brushing: Use a toothbrush with soft bristles and a small strip of fluoride toothpaste. When you brush your teeth, move the brush in small, circular motions to reach food particles that may be under your gum line. Hold the toothbrush at an angle and brush slowly and carefully, covering all areas between teeth and the surface of each tooth. It will take you several minutes to thoroughly brush your teeth. Brush up on the lower teeth, down on the upper teeth and the outside, inside and chewing surface of your front and back teeth. 
- Flossing: Pull a small length of floss from the dispenser. Wrap the ends of the floss tightly around your middle fingers. Guide the floss between all teeth to the gum line, pulling out any food particles or plaque. Unwrap clean floss from around your fingers as you go so that you have used the floss from beginning to end when you finish. Floss behind all of your back teeth.
Brushing and flossing daily in between visits to your dentist in Chesapeake, VA will keep your teeth and gums healthy in between visits.
