Our oral health is very much connected to our bodies and poor oral habits, like not brushing and flossing regularly, can lead to diseases like cardiovascular disease, dementia, respiratory infections, and diabetes. Despite this fact, many people neglect their oral health until a major complication arises and extensive dental work is required. Every cosmetic dentist knows that cosmetic dentistry starts with good oral health. At Boca Raton Cosmetic Dentist, we not only strive to help our patients achieve optimal oral health but we are also dedicated to designing a smile that they have always dreamed of having.
Oral Health Goal #1: Make An Appointment For A Yearly Cleaning
If you have dental insurance, then one of the first things you should do in order to accomplish your oral health goals is to schedule an appointment with your dentist for a cleaning. Getting regular cleanings is an effective preventative measure and the best way to check for gum disease, cavities, oral cancer, and any other oral problem.
Oral Health Goal #2: Upgrade Your Toothbrush
Brushing your teeth twice a day is crucial in maintaining good oral health. If you don’t already use an electric toothbrush, consider making the switch for 2019. Electric toothbrushes do more to reduce plaque and gingivitis than a manual toothbrush.
Oral Health Goal #3: Floss Floss And Floss
Brushing alone isn’t enough to remove all of the bacteria, food and plaque buildup that is found on our teeth’s surfaces. Even with an electric toothbrush, nothing is quite as effective as taking the time to floss. Flossing can help to prevent decay from forming between the teeth and keep gums healthy. Adding regular flossing to your daily hygiene routine can have a tremendous impact on our oral health.
Oral Health Goal #4: Quit That Bad Oral Habit
When most patients think of bad oral habits, the first thing that comes to their minds is smoking. Even though smoking cigarettes or using smokeless tobacco products are extremely bad habits, there are many other bad oral habits that not only affect our teeth but also our overall health and well-being. Habits such as biting fingernails, chewing pen caps, clenching and grinding, brushing too hard, crunching ice and using teeth to open containers, rip through packages and cut clothing tags can undo expensive dental work.
Oral Health Goal #5: Restore Your Smile
It’s a new year, full of bright opportunities to not only improve your oral health but to also restore your smile. Whether that involves professional whitening, Invisalign or altering the appearance and the shape of your teeth, there are many ways to improve your smile. A cosmetic dentist like Dr. Pohl specializes in creating beautiful smiles and maintaining great teeth.
