Preventive Care

Preventative Dentistry in Portland Oregon Patient SmilePreventive dentistry is how you and our dentists, Dr. Kevin Morich and Dr. Jodi Morich, can work together, along with a dental hygienist, to prevent dental problems. Together, our team at Macadam Dental, can help you have a healthy set of teeth that can last you a lifetime. Following the guidelines that have been put together by the American Dental Association along with a plan created for you, as needed, we can help prevent larger issues.

Our preventive services include:

Oral Hygiene Education

The most important aspect to preventative dentistry is consistent oral hygiene. We believe that starting young, learning good daily oral hygiene habits can have a lifelong impact on your oral health. Your mouth is constantly exposed to bacteria, which then continues to live and thrive in the plaque that naturally forms. Bacteria filled plaque which rests on and between your teeth causes cavities and gingivitis, which, if left in place, can lead to periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. In order to maintain a clean and healthy mouth, you must practice good oral hygiene habits every day. This means:
•  Brush your teeth twice a day, both when you rise and before you go to sleep.
•  Brush for an appropriate amount of time to clean around every tooth.
•  Floss every night before you go to sleep. Removing debris from your teeth before you sleep is best, the germs left behind can irritate and infect your gums.
•  When flossing, form a letter C with the floss, not an up and down motion, this will assist in dislodging debris.
•  Rinsing with an antibacterial rinse is good practice. It will help kill germs, and keep your mouth clean.


Your Child and the Dentist Office

Are you, as an adult, scared or dismissive of going to the dentist? You could be passing those fears and feelings on to your children. We know that your child’s oral health is important to you, and we could use your help. Kids will make choices by their parents' example, so we ask that you create a positive example and message about coming to the dentist office.

If you are calm, relaxed, and willing to attend your regular appointments, this behavior will be key to your children in how they behave during their own future cleanings and can affect their good dental habits. Support the work that we do with your children. Express the importance of keeping teeth clean, avoiding foods that may be damaging, and maintaining good habits.

Our front office staff, at Macadam Dental, is happy to answer any questions you have about preventive care. For more information, contact Dr. Kevin Morich at our Portland, OR 97239 office. (971) 337-3111
The first step towards a beautiful, healthy smile is to schedule an appointment.
