Getting braces for the first time is exciting. It marks the first step on a journey towards a beautiful, healthy new smile – and at Tollgate Orthodontics, we're proud to help patients throughout the Warwick and Jamestown, RI areas take that step every day.

The Essentials of Flossing

We all know that having proper oral hygiene is extremely important. However, many of us tend to forget about the importance of flossing in our daily routines. Our orthodontist, Dr. Daniel M. Eves, DMD, MS, recommends that you floss at least once per day. You’d think that floss has been around for hundreds of years. However, flossing has only been around since 1891 when a dentist from New Orleans recommended running a waxed thread between each tooth using the motions we still teach to remove what brushes are unable to reach. This, he said, will remove the true sources of many oral diseases.

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

Dr. Eves and his team at Tollgate Orthodontics would like everyone to know that April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. We’d like to stress how important it is to be screened for oral cancer regularly as early detection is key to beating this disease. When detected early, the survival rate can be as high as 90 percent. However, if it’s discovered late, the survival rate drops significantly to between 20 and 30 percent. Therefore, it’s very important to see your family dentist regularly for routine checkups and oral cancer screenings.
