Caring for your teeth is not an easy task, but planning and completing these few steps can ensure you have a smile that lasts your lifetime. During this time, it is even more important for you to implement these steps to take care of your teeth. Your health depends on it.
- Take care of dental emergencies. You do not want to wait for an emergency to happen and then leave it. The longer you leave a dental emergency, the more of a the problem it can become.
- Your gum health matters. Do you bleed when you brush or floss? Letting this go can lead to other problems. Be sure to brush and floss regularly. While you cannot take care of the periodontal disease without dental intervention, you can stop problems from getting worse by brushing and flossing regularly.
- Stop smoking. While you have probably heard this for years if you are a smoker, the impact on your smile can be as devastating as the overall problem it is to your body.
- Don’t forget to brush hard-to-reach places. The back of your teeth, your back molars and other hard to reach places need to be brushed also.
There is so much going on and now is not the time to let your dental health go. For more information on taking care of your smile contact Dr. Judy Strutz and her office.
