Education

Our passion for communicating with our patients is at the heart of our practice.

Dr. Diesburg believes that he helps his patients achieve their optimum oral health by providing expert dental care and teaching them how to maintain their smiles at home.

“We really transform how our patients see oral health as part of overall health,” he said.

You might hear our staff praise your “home care,” which is the daily flossing and brushing you use to keep cavities at bay, breath fresh, and smiles wide.

“If you have cavities, we’ll help figure out why they’re happening,” Dr. Diesburg said. “And if you don’t, we’ll ensure it stays that way.”

Changing habits can be hard, but you can start easily with our three-step program. Do it for 30 days and you’re well on your way to developing a new routine.

Three Steps towards Oral Health

1. Brush for 2 Minutes / Twice a day

Brushing your teeth for two minutes, two times a day is the single most important thing you can do to keep plaque from building up on your teeth and leading to decay. It also keeps gum disease at bay.

2. Floss Daily

Flossing removes the debris that accumulates between teeth, where the toothbrush often can’t reach. But it remains the step of the tooth cleaning process people often skip. Even if you hate flossing, there are a lot of products on the market to help make the process easier and more enjoyable for you. We know. It’s hard. Next time you come in for your cleaning, talk to Angela or Nick about what you can do to make flossing a part of your life.

3. Rinse with Mouthwash

Brushing and flossing are great — but imagine your teeth and gums only take up half of your mouth. If you really want to deter bacteria in your mouth, it is a great habit to end your nightly brushing routine with a quick swish of some mouthwash. There are tons of mouthwashes on the market, so again, talk to your dental hygienist about which one is right for YOUR mouth.
