We Care About Each Patient’s Overall Health
At Chatham Dental Arts, our primary goal is simple: to prevent your need for extensive restorative or cosmetic dental procedures. Through regular maintenance, our Pittsboro family dentist can help you prevent poor oral health due to decay and disease — problems that can negatively affect your overall health and well-being.
Maintaining good oral hygiene remains one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth and gums help you to not only look and feel good, but they allow you to eat and speak properly. Our caring and professional staff stresses daily preventative care — such as proper brushing and flossing — to prevent more serious problems from developing. Between regular visits to our full-service Pittsboro dental office, there are simple steps you can take to greatly decrease your risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease and other dental or medical problems.
- Brush thoroughly twice a day and floss daily
- Eat a balanced diet and limit snacks between meals
- Use dental products that contain fluoride, including toothpaste
- Rinse with a fluoride mouth rinse if your dentist advises you to
- Make sure that children under 12 drink fluoridated water
- Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and exams
- Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months
