It’s the season of love, and no one deserves a little TLC more than you do! But while you’re busy taking care of everyone else, who’s taking care of you?


At Precise Dental of Houston, we believe that good oral hygiene is at the core of healthy teeth and gums. Dr. Crouse and our caring hygienists want to help you start the year off right through regular cleanings and comprehensive exams to ensure your smile is a healthy one.

Dr. Crouse takes a preventive approach to her patients’ oral health. Recognized as one of Houston’s top dentists, she provides high quality, personalized treatment planning that can give your mouth the love it deserves. Here’s how!


A Little Love Goes a Long Way

You probably already know the basics of good oral hygiene.


✔ Brush daily.

✔ Floss daily.

✔ Schedule routine cleanings and exams with your dentist about twice a year.


Did you know there is actually a little more to it than that?


Dr. Crouse and our talented hygienists at Precise Dental of Houston want your smile to be its healthiest in 2017. When you visit us, we will take the time to discuss your oral hygiene regimen. You would be amazed at the difference little changes in your routine can make for your overall oral health!


Out With the Old, In With the New!

Here are a few little changes you can make in 2017 that can make a big difference:


Time for a New Toothbrush?

If you’ve been using your toothbrush for more than 3 or 4 months, you’re about due for another one. Perhaps you need a toothbrush with softer bristles.  Then you will want to think about how well the angle of your brush gets to those hard to reach places in your mouth.


Time for New Floss?

With so many different types of dental flosses on the market, it’s difficult to know which one works best for you. Then once you find the best kind of floss, how do you know if you’re flossing properly?


Give us a call today at 713-812-1712 to schedule a cleaning, and Dr. Crouse can help you answer these questions!


Time for New Toothpaste?

Are you reaching for the least expensive brand on the shelf? Or the one with best flavor? If so, you could be doing quite the disservice to your health.


It’s important to look for a toothpaste with the ADA Seal, one that can effectively remove the plaque from your teeth and protect you from decay and gum disease.  


Time for…..More Time?

Do you brush your teeth in a rush before you head out the door for work in the mornings? Or do you skip it entirely before you go to bed because you’re just too tired?


Now that you have the right brush, floss, and toothpaste, the best change you can make for your oral health in 2017 is to take your time when brushing!


Most dentists recommend brushing your teeth for around two minutes. You can easily make this change! Use a timer on your phone or listen to song while you brush your teeth to make sure you’re giving it the time it deserves.


Time for a New Dentist?
