Preventative Dental Information

Broadway Dental Care encourages preventive dental care throughout your life, no matter how old you are. Good oral hygiene practiced at home, combined with regular checkups at our office will keep your smile bright and your teeth healthy.

Following these simple tips will help to prevent the build-up of plaque and cavities:

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food particles and plaque from teeth. Don’t forget to brush the top of your tongue to remove any extra plaque-causing food particles. This also helps to maintain fresh breath.
  • Floss at least once a day. Mouthwash is also a good way to kill bacteria and to freshen your breath. Floss and mouthwash will help remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line where the toothbrush cannot reach.

  • A balanced diet with few sugary treats is beneficial to oral hygiene. Nutritious foods such as raw vegetables, plain yogurt, cheese or fruit can keep your smile healthy.
  • Regular checkups and professional teeth cleanings at our office should be scheduled every six months.
  • Dental sealants can be applied to the top surfaces of the back teeth where decay often starts.
  • If you play sports, be sure to ask your dentist about special mouthguards designed to protect your teeth.

If it’s been six months since your last dental checkup, then it’s time to contact Broadway Dental Care to schedule your next appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we hear at Broadway Dental Care in Paducah.

Why should I visit a Paducah dentist regularly?

Consistent dental check ups keep your teeth and mouth healthy, which helps the rest of your body health, as well.

There are many benefits to maintaining good dental care.

  • Prevents tooth decay
  • Shields against periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to tooth and bone loss
  • Neutralizes bad breath
  • Provides a healthier smile that increases your self-confidence
  • Brightens and prevents stains from food, drinks and tobacco
  • Improves your teeth adding longevity to your beautiful smile!
If I don't have problems with my teeth, should I still see a Paducah area dentist?

Just because you don’t feel or see any problems with your teeth doesn’t mean they are completely fine. Regular dentist visits are important, as problems can develop without you knowing. A dentist can preserve your smile’s health and keep it looking beautiful.

    What should I consider when looking for a Paducah area dentist?

    It is important to find a dentist who makes you feel comfortable. You should visit multiple dentists and find one that your family feels comfortable seeing.

    During your visit, ask yourself the following:

    • Is the appointment schedule convenient?
    • Is the office easy to get to and close by?
    • Does the office appear to be clean and orderly?
    • Was your medical and dental history recorded and placed in a permanent file?
    • Does the dentist explain techniques for good oral health?
    • Is information about cost presented to you before treatment is scheduled?
    • Is your dentist a member of the ADA (American Dental Association)?
    When should my child begin seeing a dentist?

    The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child’s first dentist visit should be between six months and one year old. At this age, your child will be cutting the first baby teeth and your dentist can examine the initial health of his or her teeth. Parents should then schedule a visit to the dentist for their child every six months.

    How often should I see a dentist?

    Regular check ups for children, teens and adults should be at least once every six months. Those with a higher risk for developing oral cancer or gum disease should see a dentist more than twice a year. Your dentist can make an appropriate recommendation as to how often you should schedule appointments.

    Do I still need to see a Paducah dentist every 6 months if I have braces?

    Patients with braces should definitely visit their dentist. Food is easily trapped in places within your mouth that your toothbrush can’t reach. When bacteria builds up it can lead to cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. Your dentist and your orthodontist will work together to keep your teeth clean and healthy under your braces.
