3 Dentist-Approved Tips To Improve Overall Health: Schedule Dental Care With Forest Ridge Dental Group in Cameron Park!
Many people announce their New Year’s resolutions come January 1, but the truth is it’s never too late to make a resolution to improve your oral health. Here are three dentist-approved tips to get you started on the path to excellent oral health and a better smile today.
#1 – Schedule a dental cleaning and checkup.
Get started on improving your oral health with dental cleaning at our office in Cameron Park. During your appointment, we’ll check for cavities, gum disease and serious dental issues such as oral cancer. We’ll clean and polish your teeth and take X-rays to check for any potential problems to your oral and even overall health down the road.
#2 – Floss daily.
Not only does flossing help with bad breath and cavities, but it also successfully removes bacteria-containing plaque. Studies show bacteria in plaque can lead to periodontitis, gum disease, tooth loss and other health problems.
If you’re not sure how to floss properly, we are happy to teach you. Floss should slide easily between your gums and your teeth. When you floss regularly, you’ll have healthier gum tissue.
#3 – Quit smoking.
One of the best things you can do for your oral health – and your overall health – is to quit smoking, if you indulge. Quitting can be difficult if you’ve smoked a long time, however, many people successfully quit for good if they keep trying. You can find tips on how to quit at smokefree.gov.
Smoking can turn your teeth yellow. We can help whiten your teeth and give you a confident, healthy smile with our custom teeth whitening trays that are made to fit your teeth.
