Guess what? It’s National Smile Month!
Although originally started in the United Kingdom, Smile Month is now recognized in the United States as well. Here are the dental basics this month is designed to remind us of:
- Remember to brush your teeth, at least twice a day, every day. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush, which is gentle on your gums and enamel. Brush for two minutes each time, getting the inner, outer and chewing surfaces of your teeth.
- Reduce your consumption of sugary treats and beverages. Sugar is one of those substances that the bacteria in our mouth break down, making acid as they do so, which eats away at enamel and forms cavities. Sodas and desserts are common culprits.
- Visit the dentist for regular appointments. These checkups and cleanings are essential to achieving and maintaining great dental health. No matter your age, your dental wellness is important. Our dentists want you to enjoy lifelong oral health, and we provide individualized recommendations for you.
A healthy smile is an attractive smile. We believe aesthetics and function go hand-in-hand when it comes to dentistry. Rely on us for customized treatment options.
