The Secret of Having a Healthy Smile

oral health

A beautiful, healthy smile is highly desirable, and often it’s easier to achieve than you ever imagined. Follow these easy suggestions to get your own gleaming smile.

  1. A whiter smile isn’t necessarily healthy and people who overuse over-the-counter teeth whitening products can over bleach their teeth, developing oral health problems. If you do want to whiten your teeth safely, ask us how at your next appointment.
  2. There is no substitute for flossing because dental floss can reach right in between your teeth and just below the gum line when used correctly. This reduces your chances of plaque buildup, gum disease and tooth decay. Not sure how to floss? Ask us for a quick demonstration at your dental cleaning.
  3. Ignoring a persistent toothache or other mouth pain could cause more damage. Any type of discomfort is a signal that you need professional dental care. The sooner we can treat your mouth, the quicker we can resolve the problem, and it’s more likely we can save an infected and decayed tooth.
  4. Have regular checkups and dental cleanings, even if your teeth seem fine. It’s the easiest and most cost-effective way to keep your teeth looking great all the time. Most people need to visit Brite Dental every six months.
