A nice healthy smile and that fresh mouth feeling that you have after leaving the dentist’s office can’t help but boost your self-esteem, especially if you’ve come away with a clean bill of health.  But did you take the time to ask your dentist or hygienist what more you could be doing to keep that feeling of confidence that comes with knowing that your oral health is good?

What about the color of your teeth?  It is not uncommon to see some staining over time.  There are dietary changes that you can make and cosmetic dental procedures that are designed to cover up stains that are caused by the foods and drinks that we consume.  Ask your dentist for recommendations.

Prevention is key.  A full examination every six months will increase the chances of finding a cavity or early signs of gum disease while the issue is easier to treat.  Your dentist will order x-rays to be taken when appropriate.

Professional attention is essential to oral health but home care is important too.  Brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing after meals and snacks are major preventive measures that are easy to do, you just have to set aside the time.
