Family Healthcare Dental is open to serve your dental needs!

The CDC and the American Dental Association agree that Utah residents do not need to put their dental care on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic. Almost all procedures can be done very safely.

We all face increased exposure to germs every time we leave home, yet it’s important to know that dental and medical facilities follow the highest level of cleaning and sterilization, and an increased level of PPE is being used by staff.

Patient appointments are being spaced for distancing reasons. When you arrive for your appointment you have the option of calling inside to announce your arrival, and then being invited in when we are ready to admit you to the chair, thereby eliminating waiting room time.

We can also accept payment over the phone so you can exit the building without delay. You can feel confident that your team at Family Healthcare is doing everything possible to keep you, and themselves, safe.

SELENE FLORES RDH Dental Hygienist

Selene Flores has lived in Southern Utah for 12 years and loves what the area has to offer. She decided to become a dental hygienist after working as a hygiene assistant in Laverkin, Utah. She then attended the dental hygiene program at Dixie State University. During that time, she became intrigued at the true meaning of being a hygienist. Since then, she has provided hygiene services to the community and has cherished the work of being a dental hygienist.

Tooth decay and gum disease are largely caused by plaque, a sticky combination of bacteria and food. Plaque begins to accumulate on teeth within 20 minutes after eating. If this plaque is not removed thoroughly each day, tooth decay will flourish. Over time, plaque will harden into tartar.

Plaque and tartar lead to a number of problems:

  • Cavities — holes that damage the structure of teeth
  • Gingivitis — swollen, inflamed, bleeding gums
  • Periodontitis — destruction of the ligaments and bone that support the teeth, often leading to tooth loss
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Abscesses, pain, inability to use teeth
  • A variety of health problems outside the mouth, from preterm labor to heart disease

Healthy teeth are clean and have no cavities. Healthy gums are pink and firm. To maintain healthy teeth and gums, follow these steps:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice daily, preferably after every meal and at bedtime.
  • Floss at least once per day.
  • Schedule an appointment with a dentist for a routine cleaning and examination. Many dentists recommend having the teeth professionally cleaned every 6 months.
  • Keep dentures, retainers, and other appliances clean. This includes regular brushing and may include soaking them in a cleansing solution.

Ask your dentist:

  • What toothbrush you should use, and where your problem areas are located. Ask if an electric tooth brush is right for you. Such brushes have been shown to clean teeth better than manual tooth brushes.
  • How to properly floss your teeth. Overly vigorous or improper flossing may injure the gums.
  • Whether you should use any special appliances or tools, such as water irrigation. This may sometimes help supplement (but not replace) brushing and flossing.
  • Whether you could benefit from particular toothpastes or mouth rinses. In some cases, over-the-counter pastes and rinses may be doing you more harm than good, depending on your condition.

Regular teeth cleaning by a dentist removes plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult for you to reach on your own. Professional cleaning includes scaling and polishing. This uses various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits from the teeth. Routine examination may include dental x-rays.Also add: Fillings, Extractions, Root Canals, Crowns, Sealants, Cleaning and Hygienist Services.
