The Blessing Of A Healthy Smile
We want everyone to experience the blessing of a healthy smile.
It’s important to your body’s systemic function and total wellness, and it’s also a prerequisite for cosmetic dentistry, as well.
With that in mind, we’re giving you some pointers on achieving and maintaining good dental health!
*Know What It Takes To Clean Your Teeth & Gums*
Do you brush your teeth everyday?
You probably do.
But what else do you know about what it really takes to keep your teeth and gums clean?
Well, let’s turn to the American Dental Association for more tips on your best oral hygiene:
*Make sure you’re using a soft-bristle toothbrush.
*Choose a fluoridated toothpaste.
*Brush two times a day for two minutes each time.
*Floss between your teeth and around the gumline once a day.
*Stay well-hydrated by drinking lots of water everyday.
But this is only the beginning of getting a healthy smile!
*Schedule Routine Dental Appointments*
No matter how dedicated you are to a good oral hygiene regimen, you can’t keep your teeth and gums healthy all by yourself.
Your toothbrush and dental floss are no match for hardened plaque buildup, which is why in addition to what you’re doing at home, you need to rely on us to do the rest.
Every six months, you should visit Alluring Smiles for a routine dental cleaning and exam. That’s where one of our skilled hygienists will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gumline, check your gums for any signs of bacterial infection, and deeply clean your teeth. Then, Dr. Portocarrero will provide a thorough examination of your mouth to make sure there are no underlying or developing problems.
*Catch Dental Problems As Early As Possible*
At Alluring Smiles, we want you to have everything you need to maintain a healthy smile.
That means focusing on prevention and early detection just as much as we focus on advanced, effective treatment.
After all, the easiest way to address dental problems is to keep them from developing in the first place, as well as catching them at the earliest stages.
Here are some of the ways we can protect your teeth and gums during routine visits:
*Deep cleaning using innovative dental lasers
*Screening you for gum disease and oral cancer
*Checking for cavities with DiagnoDENT detection
*Taking close-up photos of your teeth with intraoral cameras
*Relying on advanced imaging like digital X-rays to examine your mouth
Dr. Portocarrero and our highly-trained hygienists are here to defend your smile against the threat of tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease for better, more lasting dental health!
