There’s a lot to know and remember when it comes to oral health. You have to understand and practice basic health habits such as brushing, flossing, and taking regular trips to the dentist for cleanings and inspections. You have to know what kinds of foods can damage or stain your teeth, what kinds of foods can help them stay healthy, and how fluoride can help your teeth remain strong. You have to know what kinds of treatments are available for the various conditions that can develop and how to catch those conditions before they become serious. Fortunately, there are quite a few good resources out there to help you know everything you need to maintain good dental health.
DENTAL HEALTH INFORMATIONAL SITES
Including our own website, another good place for information as well as links to other informative sites is the Arizona Department of Health Services’ Oral Health page at https://www.azdhs.gov/phs/owch/oral-health/. There you can find tips on good preventive care and information on risks to infants and children’s health. The site also has facts about various dental programs, water fluoridation, and the importance of dental health. Not only does this site have excellent information, but it also links to dozens of other sites that deal with more specific questions. There are also other websites that are dedicated to providing information about various aspects of dental health.
ASK DR. TRUJILLO
One of the best ways to get information on all aspects of dental health is to ask your dentist. Not only does Dr. Trujillo probably know all the information you can find about dental health issues elsewhere, but because he or she knows you and your medical history can give you answers specifically tailored to your needs. Our own Arizona Periodontal Group website has an information section that can help you recognize the signs of dental health problems and help you find solutions. Additionally, we provide good preventive care tips. If you want to ask Dr. Trujillo questions about hygiene, problems, or treatments in person, contact us today for an appointment so that we can see to your personal needs.
