  • Brush & Floss Daily: Brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, and never forget to floss. Many people don’t floss often enough. Flossing daily has amazing benefits, like preventing cavities, gum disease, and even teeth extraction.
  • Get Regular Dental Maintenance: It's important to schedule regular teeth cleanings to detect dental health issues early on. Also, if something is bothering your tooth, it’s important to get it checked out and addressed right away. Waiting can cause the issue to exacerbate and negatively affect surrounding teeth.
  • Don’t Wait For Wisdom Teeth Removal: Some people wait until they’re in excruciating pain to call the oral surgeon for wisdom teeth removal. Have an expert periodically check up on your wisdom teeth as soon as they start growing in. Keeping an eye on your wisdom teeth allows the dentist to plan to remove them at the optimal time. If they aren't removed, wisdom teeth may interfere with the other teeth in your mouth.

Taking care of your teeth today means you'll have fewer issues later on. For all of your oral surgery and cosmetic dentistry needs, look no further than the best oral surgeons in Anchorage. You can count on these dentists to provide comfortable, reliable, and lasting dental care. Call Oral Surgery Associates today at (907) 561-1430 or visit their website today.
