Dr. Mark Mann of Mann Dental Care in Sugar Land encourages patients to make proper dental hygiene a lifelong goal
Sugar Land, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/05/2015 --Sugar Land, TX Dentist, Dr. Mark Mann of Mann Dental Care is encouraging patients to take a family approach to proper dental hygiene and to make it a lifelong goal with the building of proper habits, rather than just a periodic event. Dr. Mann and his staff treat patients of all ages, from 12 months up to seniors. They focus on providing each patient with age-appropriate oral hygiene instruction for their specific dental needs.
Dr. Mann encourages parents to begin bringing their young children to regular dental checkups beginning at 12 months of age. Although children don't have all of their primary teeth at this age, these early appointments help set a precedent for children's oral health and help ensure that parents are aware of the best ways to establish healthy dental hygiene habits in the home.
With tooth decay being the leading chronic childhood illness in America, Dr. Mann emphasizes with parents and young patients that this condition is completely preventable. However, aside from regular dental check-ups and cleanings, prevention of this disease takes place in the home with daily dental hygiene habits. Regular dental check-ups can help Dr. Mann and his staff identify any oral plaque or decay early on so it can be corrected with minimally invasive procedures. It also helps identify areas that may need more attention during hygiene routines to prevent future decay or plaque.
For adult patients, Dr. Mann and his staff help patients implement proper habits for preventing tooth decay but also for preventing gingivitis and gum disease, which is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. While much attention is often placed on the importance of brushing to prevent cavities, many patients neglect the need for flossing to keep their gums healthy. During regular checkups and cleanings, Dr. Mann and his staff monitor the health of patient's gums and provide treatments when needed to restore their oral health to excellent condition.
For elderly patients, Dr. Mann and his staff provide standard hygiene services along with options for dental prosthetics like dentures or dental implants, to restore function after the loss of permanent teeth.
While the first goal of Dr. Mann and his staff is to help patients have a healthy smile, they are also dedicated to helping patients feel confident with their smiles through cosmetic procedures. Some of these procedures include tooth-colored fillings, porcelain crowns, veneers, dental implants, and more.
