In honor of National Smile Month, Buckle Advanced Dental Care is highlighting the importance of a healthy smile. Your teeth play a huge role in everyday functions like eating, speaking, and even smiling. Practicing healthy oral habits can offer many life-long benefits.
At Buckle Advanced Dental Care, Dr. Ian Buckle leads a team of highly trained, experienced dentists who are dedicated to helping each our patients achieve, maintaining, and promote a healthier smile.
The Importance of a Healthy Smile
As most of us know, we only get one set of natural teeth. Unlike other parts of the body, once the teeth are damaged, they can not be restored naturally. Practicing excellent oral hygiene, visiting the dentist regularly and staying up to date on the latest oral care information, can minimize your risk of developing advanced dental issues. Dental issues, such as gum disease and tooth decay, are preventable by practicing a healthy oral hygiene routine.
Recent studies have suggested that issues like gum disease may cause an increased risk of heart attack, diabetes, stroke, and other systemic health problems. Maintaining a healthy smile may encourage better overall health.
Celebrate National Smile Month
Join Buckle Advanced Dental Care in our effort to encourage healthy smiles for National Smile Month. Patients of all ages can adopt these healthy oral hygiene habits to improve their oral health and reduce their risk of developing oral health issues.
- Brushing: Brush your teeth for at least two minutes, twice a day. Even skipping brushing one time can affect the health of the teeth. To maintain a healthy smile, you should utilize brushing as an effective way to minimize plaque buildup, whiten the teeth and eliminate bad breath.
- Flossing: Many patients neglect flossing their teeth from their oral hygiene routine. Your oral hygiene routine is not complete without flossing. Flossing is an effective way to remove debris and plaque buildup from between the teeth. When plaque is not removed, it may harden and develop into plaque. When plaque reaches the gum line, it may lead to gum disease. Taking preventive measures to avoid complex dental concerns can benefit you in the long run.
- Visit The Dentist: Visit the dentist at least twice a year. Regular visits to the dentist can encourage a healthier smile. Your dentist can work with you to develop healthy oral health habits that can promote healthier teeth and gums. Your dentist can also identify anything from minor to major dental issues that may be affecting your oral health. For instance, when gum disease is caught early, patients have a better chance of receiving conservative treatment to eliminate the infection and prevent further damage to the teeth and gums.
