Dr. Corsello, our resident dentist, has over 25 years of experience treating patients in the Pittsburgh area. As far as local dentists go, he can’t be beat. Along with his team of hygienists and assistants, you can rest assured you’re receiving top quality service every time you step through our doors. Doctors recommend brushing your teeth daily for two minutes or more. It isn’t necessary to brush too hard, but make sure you’re thorough, paying special attention to the gumline and the backs of your teeth. Often, these are the most likely areas of plaque and bacterial build up. Flossing daily is also recommended. Your toothbrush simply can’t reach towards the back of your mouth and between your teeth as effectively as floss. Floss always you to remove the food and detritus trapped between teeth, preventing cavities and decay in the area. Mouthwash is the final step in your oral home hygiene routine. Choose a recognized brand, and be sure to rinse thoroughly with the mouthwash for thirty minutes. Take care not to swallow anyway. When your mouth is tingling and the mouthwash has been given time to rinse out all bacteria, spit.
