Maintaining A Simple Dental Routine Plays A Roll In Good Overall Health

Oct 30, 2007
In today's society it is important to put your best face forward by keeping your smile healthy and sparkling for success. With so many options, choosing the right dental products or cosmetic procedures seems almost as painful as pulling teeth. Some important health tips and cosmetic ideas will have you beaming in no time.

Brushing teeth and flossing as much as possible can be a monotonous routine, but certainly has its benefits. Keeping teeth and gums healthy prevents bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. Regular maintenance also has a direct bearing on overall health. According to the Mayo Clinic website, a person with gum disease is at higher risk for more serious health problems like a heart attack, stroke, diabetes or pre-term labor. Gum disease can be prevented with proper care and good oral hygiene habits.

The American Dental Association ( ADA ) suggests the following: brush twice a day with a soft bristled brush preferably after snacks and meals, floss daily and see the dentist regularly. Oral health can also depend on the type and amount of saliva in a mouth, and a health diet with a low sugar intake will help keep teeth clean and sparkling.

"It is important to have excellent ( dental) home care, to eat as little sweet stuff as possible and to see the dentist regularly."

With a consistent routine and a healthy diet, the back-to-basics approach to healthy dental care seems to be the way to go. However, if teeth are in bad condition, cosmetic surgery or whitening procedures can give your teeth the care they deserve.

One way to improve appearance is with a whitening process using at-home products or teeth-whitening procedures performed by a dentist. The number of at-home whitening products has grown rapidly through the years, which can make picking the correct product for you a daunting task.

A dentist will custom fit you for whitening trays quickly and easily in your initial visit. Hell show you how to apply the whitening gel and assist you with your first application in-office. Then you will continue treatments in your home until your teeth are as bright as you want.

A beautiful smile can brighten your life every day, professionally and socially. And unlike plastic surgery, cosmetic dentistry isn't a major operation. Imagine coming in for a single appointment or two and emerging with the smile you've always wanted...no pain, no strain, no time taken away from your busy life. The results are immediate and dramatic.
