Dental Care

Daily routine for a lifetime of smiles

Brushing and flossing are easy to do, and easy not to do. If part of your daily routine, you'll be protecting your smile and oral health.


Dental Care

The most effective dental care begins at home – with you – with effective brushing and flossing of your teeth. Dr. Jesse Taylor of Plano Parkway Dental, located in Plano, Texas, and his dental team want to ensure your at-home dental care program is proper for your specific dental concerns.

Dental Care – Brushing

dental care brushingBrushing properly is important in dental care. After you eat, when not properly removed, lingering food particles create the perfect environment for bacteria to attach to the enamel of your teeth. The food particles then either seep or lodge into your gum line developing plaque, a colorless, acid-producing coating that forms on your teeth. Ranked as one of the highest contributors for developing periodontal disease, the daily removal of plaque lessens your chances for cavities or gum disease; therefore, the most effective, first-step dental care that you can perform at home is proper brushing. Plano Parkway Dental can instruct you on proper brushing methods and preferred oral health care products. By following Dr. Taylor's recommend method of brushing your teeth, you are on your way to complete, effective dental care.

Dental Care – Flossing

You have hard-to-reach areas and in-between surfaces of your teeth that require another method of dental care: flossing. Dr. Taylor or his dental hygienist can demonstrate how to floss properly. Flossing properly requires a bit of skill, but once mastered, flossing takes only a few extra minutes a day to help you achieve good dental care.

Dental Care – Effects of Poor Dental Care

The effects of poor dental care can vary from tooth decay and cavities to gingivitis, periodontitis, and tooth loss; however, with proper dental care, including brushing and flossing, you will prevent many of these problems.

Remember, when you do not clean your teeth properly every day, you are at risk for tooth decay. Warning signs of tooth decay include visible holes (dental cavities) in your teeth, pain when you bite, and sensitivity or pain in your teeth. If you begin to experience any of these signs of tooth decay, please call Plano Parkway Dental immediately.

From A Patient

Just as soon as I walked in I felt at ease, they were very kind , the staff was very entertaining and joked around to make me feel very comfortable. I am very afraid of pain and I didn't have any pain going to see Dr. Taylor he was so cool. I will return to get all of my work done with him. Loved this place!
