Home Care and Oral Hygiene
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) states 92% of adults ages 20 to 64 have had dental caries in their permanent teeth. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states 50% of all adults have Periodontal Disease. The fact is that most of the products, devices, and home care techniques that are supposed to help us keep our teeth and mouth healthy do not work.
We at Wilton Dental Associates believe that all dental disease is preventable. We have one of the most effective Preventive programs anywhere. Part of this program is knowing and recommending to you what home care technology and appliances are easiest to use and give the best most consistent results. Years of extensive research and experience have gone into this.
95% of our patients who follow our home care and oral hygiene recommendations NEVER get any new dental disease.
We will design a customized program for you which requires only a few minutes a day to be successful and in many cases our patients spend no more time than they were spending prior to coming to our office. You will have a Registered Dental Hygienist who will help you get these results and who will act as your coach.
Our home care instruction and our hygienist acting as your coach is at no charge to our patients and additional help or instruction is available also at no charge.
