Just like the song from the Broadway musical “Annie” says, you’re never fully dressed without a smile. Indeed, your smile is one of the most important elements of your appearance, so if you put a lot of effort into wearing the latest fashions, you should do the same to maintain your smile.
Fortunately, keeping your smile in good shape doesn’t have to involve as much expense as building up an attractive wardrobe. Just a few visits to the dentist each year can help keep your smile in tip-top shape. If you want to enhance that smile, you can take advantage of all of the options dentistry offers.
How To Keep Your Teeth As Healthy As Possible
Good oral hygiene care – both at home and in a professional practice – is the foundation of an attractive smile. To cover all of your bases, you should:
- Brush and floss as directed
- See your dentist every six months for routine checkups and cleanings
- Eat a healthy diet and limit sweets
- Seek treatment as soon as possible if you develop any issues
Ideally you will be able to avoid any major issues by seeking routine care twice a year. Not only will you reduce your risk of oral diseases by keeping your teeth and gums as clean as possible, but you’ll also improve your chances of catching any issues in their earliest stages when they can be treated easily.
The Innovation Of Modern Dentistry
Just like styles change throughout the years, the practice of dentistry does as well – for the better. Many recent advances have improved the delivery of both routine care and cosmetic and restorative interventions, should they be needed.
These are just a few of the most current treatments that you’ll find at modern dentistry practices:
- Digital imaging that reduces the patient’s exposure to radiation
- Professional grade teeth whitening treatments that produce reliable and noticeable results
- Tooth-colored restorations that don’t detract from the rest of your smile
Of course, this is far from a comprehensive list, and we are happy to give you additional information on all of the advanced interventions that our practice offers to keep your smile in style.
