Bright Smiles Start With a Visit to Siverado Dental Care

Napa dentist Silverado Dental Care wants you to know that preventive dental care is important throughout your life, regardless of your age! By practicing good oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular checkups with the Napa dental office of Silverado Dental Care you can help keep your smile bright and healthy for many years to come.

Here are a few simple ways you can prevent the build-up of plaque and cavities:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush by following Napa dentist Silverado Dental Care brushing instructions. Use fluoride toothpaste to remove food particles and plaque from the tooth surfaces. Also, be sure to brush the top surface of your tongue; this will remove any extra plaque-causing food particles and help keep your breath fresh!
  • Clean between your teeth by flossing at least once a day using these flossing instructions provided by Napa dentist Silverado Dental Care. You can also use a mouthwash to help kill bacteria and freshen your breath. Decay-causing bacteria can linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can't reach. Floss and mouthwash will help remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.
  • Eat a balanced diet, and try to avoid extra-sugary treats. Nutritious foods, such as raw vegetables, plain yogurt, cheese or fruit can help keep your smile healthy.
  • Remember to schedule regular checkups with your dentist every six months for a professional teeth cleaning.
  • Ask your dentist about dental sealants, a protective plastic coating that can be applied to the chewing 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 smile.

If it’s been six months since your last dental checkup, then it’s time to contact us and schedule your next appointment! Give us a call today at (707) 240-8287.

Our Happy Customers

"I took my daughter (2 1/2) for her first cleaning and she had a blast!! Talked about it all the way home!! We love Silverado dental care!!"

Morgan

"My husband and I have been going here for years. Not only is everyone amazing but they truly care about your well being before, during and after procedures. God bless ANY dentist that will answer his own phone on a weekend. Dr. Ringard just helped me at 10am on a Saturday morning. I'd recommend them to anyone!"

Carrie

"I have been searching and searching for the perfect dentist office. It is much like trying to find a decent boyfriend. At first they are sweet are lure you in, but then all of a sudden they turn on you and you can't trust them anymore. Well...Silverado Dental Care is like the prince charming of dental care in Napa.
The team here is so wonderful and warm, from the moment I walked into the office I fell in love. I highly recommend Silverado Dental Care, and will never leave their trusting side.
They fixed a cracked veneer, cleaned, and polished my pearly whites all while I sit comfortably in a tempur-pedic chair watching Planet Earth.
Much like the rest of the population, I do not like going to the dentist; but do not fear!! Silverado Dental Care is here!"
