There is more to a healthy smile than having a set of white teeth. The bones surrounding your teeth, gums, and salivary glands are crucial elements of a healthy smile. When conducting a dental examination, our dentists consider all of them to ensure that they do not put your oral health at unnecessary risks. Below, we offer a variety of proven methods to help you achieve a healthy smile.
Regular Dental Checkups
Most people hesitate to visit a dentist until they experience pain and discomfort in their teeth and the regions around their mouth. Achieving a healthy smile involves visiting our dentists at least twice a year. During dental checkups, we perform oral cancer screenings, dental cleanings and take x-rays to detect any underlying issues that are impossible to see with the naked eye.
Clean Your Mouth Thoroughly
Thorough mouth cleaning not only involves regular brushing and flossing but taking care of your gums. Your mouth is full of bacteria that put your teeth in danger of cavities. To lower your mouth's bacteria load, we recommend the daily use of an antiseptic mouth rinse.
Drink Plenty of Water
Rather than drinking acidic and sugary drinks, we highly recommend drinking plenty of water. Water is crucial for teeth maintenance, and it helps improve your overall health. It helps cleanse food that tends to stick to your teeth, improves bad breath, and rinses your mouth.
Water also helps address dry mouth issues that are risk factors for cavities. If your mouth is constantly dry, mention that to our professions for them to come up with a custom treatment plan that will improve your oral hygiene. We always accept new patients, and it is our pleasure to serve them to help them achieve maximum oral hygiene. Please get in touch with our office to make an appointment with one of our dentists.
