What resolutions have you made for 2019? Starting next week, why not resolve to keep your smile healthy and bright? With a few changes to your routine, you can keep your smile healthy throughout 2019. Let’s talk about what steps our North Hollywood, CA, patients can take to enjoy better smiles!
Be Sure You Brush and Floss
When you care for your smile each day, you limit the risk of tooth decay and gum disease by removing food particles. Otherwise, these food particles would be broken down by bacteria, a process that leads to plaque buildup, weakened tooth enamel, and inflamed gum tissue. We suggest brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes each session. You should also floss before bed as well.
Schedule an Exam and Cleaning
When you see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning, we keep a watchful eye on your smile, identifying possible problem areas in the earliest stages. We then discuss the most appropriate treatment options to prevent them from progressing. We also perform a cleaning to remove plaque and tartar, which offers fresher breath and brighter teeth, as well as a decreased risk of cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease.
Try Healthier Foods and Drinks
A healthy diet impacts your heart and waistline in positive ways. In addition, you also limit the risk of tooth decay and a host of other oral health issues. We suggest adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet. Also, opt for a glass of water in lieu of soda, energy drinks, and sports drinks. If you have any questions about a smile healthy diet, or if you’re ready to schedule a checkup and cleaning in the New Year, then contact our team today. We want to help you enjoy a healthy smile all year long!
