Maintain Your Great Smile
If you use something often, you also know that wear and tear takes a toll. Think about your car or truck. There are things you need to do frequently (refilling it with gas) to keep it running. You also need to do other things that are just as important (changing the oil, rotating the tires), even if you don’t need to do them as often.
Your teeth also require a consistent routine of care. You should be doing a few things every day, according to the American Dental Association. Start by brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes at a time. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a pea-sized squeeze of toothpaste to clean your teeth on all sides. Then, once per day, you should floss to clean between your teeth and under your gumline.
The ADA also recommends regular dental checkups a few times each year. During these visits, professionals remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. This also is our opportunity to catch tooth decay and gum disease while they are in the early stages. Treating these small problems can help you prevent larger ones down the road.
Make Repairs As Needed
As anyone with a car knows, over time parts wear out. This is why you have to replace tires, breaks, and more to keep your car running smoothly.
With your mouth, you can keep your teeth in working shape with the help of restorative dentistry. If you have a broken or cracked tooth, we can repair your smile with a dental crown. If you have a tooth infection, a root canal to bring back your ability to bite and chew without pain.
If you do end of losing teeth, you can replace them with dentures and bridges. You also can make your replacement teeth stronger by getting dental implants.
