Your Best Oral Hygiene is Our Priority

“Dental problems usually start small and continue to get worse as time goes by, like a pothole in the road or a crack in a windshield.”

Preventive Care | Teeth Cleaning Appointments

At Joplin Family Dental, our team is dedicated to providing a strong foundation for great oral hygiene and health. It is recommended that you brush your teeth three times a day and floss once a day.

A professional examination and teeth cleaning by a Registered Dental Hygienist every six months is recommended for most people. This will supplement the oral hygiene you maintain at home and will help protect your teeth from decay and prevent cavities. You are an important piece of the puzzle to successful dental health.

Your Dental & Overall Health

Our hygienists are very perceptive when they see changes in a patient’s mouth. Stress, poor diet and lack of sleep usually cause changes in brushing and flossing habits and can affect a patient’s oral and overall health. This often leads to bad breath, bleeding gums, periodontal (gum) disease and will compromise your immune system.

When the mouth is unhealthy your overall health can be affected as well. Numerous studies have shown that heart health (stroke and heart attack) and diabetes are related to poor oral health.

Six month preventive care appointments allow us to treat many dental problems early before they become more serious.
