Proper dental care is important for all ages.

Good dental health requires daily care of your teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. It is recommended that you receive professional dental check-ups and cleanings at least 1-2 times per year. At Maple Shade Dental of Peoria we provide top service for your annual check-ups and cleanings as well as necessary treatment you may need.

How to avoid dental problems? Good daily dental practice, including:

  • Brush after meals with a toothbrush that has soft or medium bristles.
  • Use toothpaste with fluoride.
  • Use dental floss every day.
  • Eat fewer sweets, especially between meals.
  • Do not smoke or chew tobacco products.
  • Visit your dentist for regular check-ups.
