Not everyone is able to stick to their New Year’s resolution, but if healthier teeth and gums and a new smile is on your list, your dentist suggests that you stick to your guns and keep your promises.
Most people know that brushing, flossing and regular dental checkups are essential for a healthy mouth, but according to the American Dental Association over 56% of men and women in the United States do not floss their teeth. What’s even worse is over half of the population doesn’t brush.
Brushing and flossing is essential when it comes to a beautiful smile, but so are regular appointments with your dentist. Seeing your dentist twice a year can prevent gum disease and dental caries. If left unattended gum disease can cause serious problems including tooth loss. If you leave a cavity to its own devices, a root canal may be the only option. Large cavities that have become infected are usually the sign of a dead nerve in the pulp of your tooth. If this occurs, a root canal is the only answer. Regular dental checkups can help prevent root canals and other more expensive dental treatments.
If your dentist has given you a clean bill of health, but you are still not happy with your toothy grin, ask about cosmetic dental options. These days there are several dental restoration procedures that can totally change your outlook on life, and your smile.
