4 Risks You Face When Not Taking Care Of Your Smile

Taking care of your smile is important to ensuring, not only your dental health but, your physical health as well. Brushing and flossing is only the start to making sure that your smile will last a lifetime. It is also critically important that you visit the dentist on a regular basis. Visiting your dentist can provide an opportunity for your cosmetic dental team to fix any problems right away. Here are 4 risks you run when not taking care of your smile: 
1. Losing your teeth. Once a tooth has to be pulled you are more likely to lose other teeth. Further damage once a tooth is lost includes your arch caving in and your cheeks will sink in. Your teeth will also move together to cover up the spot of the missing tooth. 
2. Decreased overall health. It may be difficult to consume food you love or that is healthy due to dental pain, problems or missing teeth. 
3. Depression. You may find that you do not enjoy smiling if you do not love your smile. As you smile less, it is more likely that you will develop symptoms of sadness or depression. 
4. Recent studies have also found a link between Pneumonia and dental bacteria. 

We want to make sure you always have a healthy smile you love to show off to friends and family and that keeps you moving forward in your life. For more information on how to keep your smile healthy, contact Dr. Judy Strutz and her team.

3 Ways To Improve Your Smile Today!

You deserve to have the best smile. Did you know that individuals who have a healthy, beautiful smile are more likely than their counterparts to apply for a new job? They are more confident and more likely to achieve their goals. This may seem weird, but think about how many times you walk into some place and instead of sharing your smile with everyone, you hide behind it, because you don’t find your smile looks the way you want it to.  So, here are 3 things you can do to improve your smile.
1.     Brush and floss regularly. Brushing and flossing is a simple way to remove plaque from building up on your teeth and your gum line. Having a healthy smile is only possible with continually and consistency brushing and flossing.

2.     Don’t chew on ice or other items that are not food. These items can cause damage to your teeth such as broken or chipped teeth.

3.     Get help. Schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist. It is a great opportunity to sit down with an expert and analyze the overall health of your smile as well as creating a plan in order to reach your smile goals.

Take Back Your Smile

Letting go of your goals for your smile is tragic. You may be working or going through your life and thinking you don’t have enough money to improve your smile. Or you might think you do not have time to get the gap in your front teeth that has always been there fixed. However, when you have teeth that are broken, chipped, cracked or damaged from incidences, unhealthy habits or trauma you leave not only your smile at risk but also, your overall health.

There is a connection to what happens in your mouth that can drastically impact the health of your heart, your body and your ability to perform to the best of your ability. While years ago health care workers may not have 100% understood how much the health of your mouth can impact your overall health, it is clear now that periodontal disease is a bacteria that when not taken care of can cause a host of problems. While this may seem extreme, there are other minor problems you may face as well. If you are not able to chew your food because your teeth are sensitive, it may cause you to lose out on essential nutrients that you need to fuel your body.

Protect Your Smile!

It can be difficult to really know how to protect your smile with so much information floating around out there. Do you often wonder if you are making the right decisions? It is easy when we are busy to reach for food and drinks that are damaging to your smile or to skip the six-month dental appointment. It takes work to keep your smile healthy.

Here are 5 things you should avoid in order to keep your smile in great shape. 

1.     Avoid eating ice. Ice can damage the teeth causing cracked or broken teeth. Your teeth may also become sensitive to hot and cold foods and drinks.
2.     Don’t skip brushing and flossing. It is imperative to keep your smile healthy by brushing and flossing regularly.
3.     Avoid eating large amounts of carbs that stick to your teeth. The longer that food is on the surface of your teeth, the more likely you are to end up with cavities or decay and other problems.
4.     Kick that soda habit. The high sugar and acid content can cause problems for the enamel of your teeth. This can lead to decay, which can then lead to more difficult problems with your smile.
5.     Visit the dentist regularly. Problems that arise can be taken care of when you visit the dentist early instead of waiting too long. Also, dental visits help keep your smile healthy so you can avoid dental pain and other problems.
