Oral health is really important. I cannot stress this enough how visiting a clinic like Gary Cash DDS could help you keep your oral hygiene on top form. I know from personal experience that no matter how many trips to the dentist you make, how much proper care you take of your teeth, you still need to do more! Saying that though, visiting the dentist is a big part of it. There is always something extra you can be doing and you should. Especially where teeth are concerned.
I have the worst teeth on the planet. I’m convinced of it. You would think that I would visit a Dentist in Lancaster, for example, to get my teeth sorted out. I’ve done everything right, and still, they bring me so much grief and issue. It’s awful, but the more things we do the fewer issues will arise so I do try to do my very best, and I also make sure we do everything we can for our kids teeth because they seem to be taking after me, and my mom with their teeth and that means more extra care!
I am so envious of my friend as she has always had perfect teeth. Recently, she even treated herself to a teeth whitening treatment at a Dentist in Manchester and her smile has never looked better. Of course, there are steps you can take at home to keep your teeth sparkling white too though.
The National Oral Health Care month acts as the perfect annual reminder that it’s important to pay special attention to our teeth and our overall oral hygiene, which can have a tremendous impact on our overall health. Did you know that poor oral health can lead to gum disease, which left untreated can lead to the loss of teeth… do I need to go on? If reading this doesn’t make you want to visit a Dentist in Kennewick (or one closer to where you live), then you’re not taking your oral hygiene as seriously as you should.
To get you started on the path towards a brighter, whiter smile, the following tips are suggested:
For the Kids:
Children often look at mom and dad as role models, so make sure you lead by example and talk to them about the importance of taking care of their teeth and gums!
- Suggest using a timer or a song to ensure that the kiddies are brushing for as long as they’re supposed to. You can even make it a family activity by doing it all together.
- Give your kiddos a bonus for brushing. A sticker chart that keeps track of their brushing habits is a great way to give them an incentive to brush.
- Introduce a toothpaste and brush that features one of your kid’s favorite characters – such as the Orajel™ Spiderman™ and My Little Pony™ Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste and the Kids Spinbrush™ My Little Pony™ Battery Toothbrush. It keeps things exciting while practicing healthy habits!
If you find that your kid is not brushing their teeth for as long as they should and you have noticed a difference to their oral hygiene, it may be worth getting in touch with a pediatric dentistry clinic to get your child’s teeth looked at. Plus, dentists will be able to help you and your children prevent any issues occurring when it comes to your oral health.
Make sure you’re brushing and flossing at least twice a day to achieve optimal oral health.
- The Canadian Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush or toothbrush head every three months or sooner if it becomes worn, for an optimal clean.
- Use a battery-powered toothbrush with sonic pulsating action. For example, the new Arm & Hammer™ Sonic Pulse Battery Toothbrush is clinically proven to remove 2X more plaque versus a manual toothbrush. This toothbrush has a slim, ergonomic handle, and comes with a replaceable head and battery!
- If you can’t resist desserts and candy, pay attention! Foods that contains a lot of sugar can stain your teeth and soften tooth enamel. I recommend Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Clean & Fresh™ Toothpaste for enamel safe whitening and lasting freshness plus it prevents tartar build up!
This month make it your goal to wear a smile you’re proud of, so follow these tips, visit a local dentist like this Dentist in Marlborough to get more advice, and get that smile you want to wear! How are you practicing good oral health habits?
