University Dental Center has been Dr. Habbal and his staff's home since 1992. We work with our patients so they can achieve and maintain a beautiful smile, healthier gums and teeth. We take the time to explain to our patients, their treatment options and inform them of additional preventative care. We feel this will lead to a more trusting doctor/patient relationship and, for many people, relieve the stress about seeing the dentist. We take pride in providing you with a comfortable office experience where our qualified staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We invite you to call with any questions or contact us through our website or social media. Take advantage of the resources on our website, both as a new or current patient. We hope to see you soon and we look forward to getting to know you.
About Our Preventive Dentistry Program At University Dental Center.
Both natural teeth and teeth with restorations survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where the intake of harmful foods is controlled. Our program is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored and manage periodontal disease. At the initial visit oral hygiene instructions are reviewed and are reinforced at subsequent recall visits. The following are helpful recommendations:
The Preventive Program
- Brush your teeth twice a day in a circular motion with a soft bristled toothbrush aimed at the gum.
- Floss every night in an up-and-down motion while keeping the floss in a U-shape and against the tooth surface.
- Avoid smoking.
- Avoid sticky sugary foods.
- Eat a balanced diet.
- Use antiseptic and fluoride rinses as directed.
- Have sealants placed on young permanent teeth.
