Brushing Teeth | Charles F. Betts, Jr., D.M.D.

You already know this one. Consider this a friendly reminder to brush your teeth twice daily and to floss between your teeth and gums each day. 

2. Get Regular Checkups

Dental Exams and Dental Cleaning in Decatur | Charles F. Betts, Jr., D.M.D.

Professional cleanings are how we remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. Professional exams give us an opportunity to find problems.

3. Choose Preventive Services

For added protection, get dental sealants and fluoride treatments. These shield your teeth and make them more resistant to the harmful bacteria that cause decay.

4. Fix Problems Fast

When problems do occur, your best option is to treat them as soon as you are able. We can help whether you need a filling for a cavity, a crown for a broken tooth, or something else.
