Did you know that the first bristle toothbrushes were introduced by the Chinese over half a century ago? Rather than the modern nylon of today’s bristles, these first toothbrushes were made from the tough hair on the back of Siberian hogs’ necks, delicately woven into bone or bamboo handles. The good news? Today, you no longer need to go the whole hog when it comes to maintaining your oral hygiene! Together with the help of your Manteca dentist office, we can help you almost entirely eliminate the threat of dental disease, and treat a wide range of issues at their very earliest onset. At Family Dental Center of Manteca, we encourage our patients to schedule semi-annual checkups for routine preventive care, so that we can help you establish and maintain the best possible oral health.
With the advent of nylon bristle toothbrushes, the prospect of brushing ones’ teeth twice a day has become far more palatable. Combined with daily flossing, you can keep plaque buildup to a minimum. Removing plaque consistently is important because the bacteria it harbors is responsible for the development of cavities and gum disease. When you come to our Manteca dentist office for your checkup, Dr. Mitu will perform a careful examination of your teeth, gums, and jaws, checking for the slightest signs of any dental conditions. Our office is equipped with the foremost diagnostic modalities, so your dentist can screen for a comprehensive range of issues. In addition to your exam, a professional teeth cleaning will be performed, so that any plaque buildup can be expertly removed from your mouth. We also offer personalized instruction in the proper methods for brushing and flossing, so you can get the most benefits from your efforts at home.
By all accounts, modern dental standards have gone hog-wild for your oral health! To schedule your next checkup at our Manteca dentist office, give a call to our friendly staff today!
