Have you ever admired someone’s smile and wondered how they keep it gleaming? Perhaps you’d like a healthier smile and aren’t sure what to do? Read on to learn four secrets of a healthy smile.
Bright White Doesn’t Necessarily Equal Good Health
Nowadays lots of people bleach their teeth, but it is possible to over whiten them and which can cause oral health problems. If you want to whiten your smile, it’s always best to see a dentist who will ensure you whiten healthily and safely.
Nothing Replaces Flossing
Dental floss is the most effective way to clean between your teeth and right down to just below your gum line where bacteria tend to build up. Daily flossing reduces plaque buildup and your risk of gum disease and helps to keep your smile shiny and bright.
Don’t Ignore Tooth Pain
All too often, we see patients who have ignored toothache or other oral pain until it becomes unbearable. It’s far better to see us sooner so we can treat you more quickly, relieving that discomfort and reducing damage to your pearly whites.
Visit Your Dentist Regularly
Regular dental checkups and cleans are by far the easiest way to maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. Preventative dental care saves time and money and will give you the confidence of knowing your smile looks its best.
