Dr. Sohail Venus – Advice
Maintaining the overall health of your teeth and gums is an ongoing practice. Dr.
Sohail Venus has dedicated over five years to the dental field, providing patients with a
multitude of treatment options. Realizing that homecare is just as important as regular
visits, Dr. Venus lends his expertise to his patients, granting them the ability to care for
themselves and avoid potentially complex oral problems down the line.=
Good brushing and flossing habits are paramount to avoiding gum disease. Dr. Venus
emphasizes the importance of daily maintenance in an effort to reduce the amount of
plaque buildup. Patients are often surprised how quickly plaque can form on their teeth,
and given its colorless nature, it can sometimes be hard to detect.
Not only does Dr. Venus advise his patients on when to brush and floss, he also advices
them on the proper techniques to do so. Brushing has to be done at a particular angle with
an ideal brush in order to achieve the maximum benefit. He encourages patients to use a
circular-like motion on the outside areas of their teeth, and back-and-forth motions for
the upper and lower front teeth. Consistently changing the angle of the brush will allow
patients to reach every part of their teeth. Patients will immediately notice the benefits
of brushing this way, and will have the friendly advice of Dr. Venus to thank for their
continued dental health.
Dr. Venus also offers advice on flossing techniques and on choosing the best dental
hygiene products. Some individuals have more sensitive teeth than others and the
products they purchase should reflect that sensitivity. Softer brushes or medicated
toothpastes may be recommended for some. Dr. Venus recommends using fluoride
toothpastes and mouthwashes to halt the spread of harmful decay.
Of course no amount of homecare will substitute for a cleaning, but Dr. Venus believes
that a combination of the two will result in sustained oral health for his patients. Even if
patients do fall victim to tooth decay, Dr. Venus’s arsenal of techniques are designed to
solve just about any dental problem.
