Flossing to remove stubborn plaque between teeth
Strengthening the enamel with a fluoride rinse

Any dental problem that requires immediate treatment:
Saving a tooth, stopping bleeding, or alleviating severe pain are all considered dental emergencies. A severe infection or abscess in the mouth should be dealt with immediately. Basically, any dental problem that requires immediate treatment in order to save a tooth, stop ongoing tissue bleeding, or alleviate severe pain is considered a dental emergency.
Your dentist should be the first person you call if you have a dental emergency. Be sure to keep our after hours contact information readily available at all times.
At-home oral hygiene and regular dental visits:
Schedule regular dental check-ups every six months; more often if you’re at higher risk for oral disease. Have dental cleanings and screenings which may include x-rays that enable dentists to look for signs of dental problems that are not visible to the eye such as oral diseases, which can interfere with eating, speaking, daily activities, and self-esteem.
