We think everyone deserves a more beautiful smile, but maybe not for the reasons you may think. Smiles don’t just have vanity appeal. Smiles can make a big impact on our confidence and interactions with others, which has downstream effects on things such as job satisfaction, relationships, and other essential parts of a healthy, happy life.
Some people require significant dental treatments to restore their smiles to their original beauty. Other patients need to simply maintain their current state of health to keep a beautiful smile intact. Whether you got your smile through a series of advanced procedures or by consistently practicing good oral hygiene over many years, there are eight steps you can take to ensure that your smile stays beautiful for a long time.
Part Eight: Visit the Dentist for Routine Cleanings
In part seven, we talked about how important it is to perform self-examinations of your mouth every week or so. You know your mouth best and can do these self-checks frequently and without cost whenever you want. However, it’s also vital to come into the dentist’s office every six months or so in order to receive a cleaning and give us a chance to check your mouth for signs of trouble, including gum disease or oral cancer (those with a history of crowns, advanced decay, or other problems may need to come in more frequently for check-ups). If you’re having some significant issues with your dental health, it’s vital that we spot them as soon as possible before the problems advance beyond a point that we can restore your mouth to its most healthy and beautiful state.
