What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and carrot sticks? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging footpath? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are in top shape? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental x-ray showing no cavities, we salute you.
When done correctly and consistently, brushing and flossing are a vital component of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft bristled toothbrush to safeguard your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and be sure you reach all the surfaces.
Flossing should be done once a day and is required for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Addison stores, so experiment until find one you like.
At The Addison Dentist, we are devoted to helping each of our patients experience oral health and avoid dental problems that can compromise their all-around health.
And just as some healthcare providers provide cosmetic procedures, we also offer services that improve the esthetics of your smile. Ask us about porcelain veneers, dental implants, invisible braces, white fillings, inlays/onlays and same-day teeth whitening.
