May is National Smile Month

May 16th begins National Smile Month, a national campaign to promote good oral health in children and adults. Here are some key points from nationalsmilemonth.org to maintain a health smile:

  • Brush your teeth last thing at night and on at least one other occasion with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks.
  • Visit your dentist regularly.
  • Change your toothbrush every two to three months or sooner if it becomes worn.
  • Clean in between your teeth at least once a day using floss.
  • If you are nervous about visiting the dentist, make sure they are aware of why so they can improve your treatment.

A great smile can improve your self-confidence, create a positive mind set and can change not only your mouth, but your body too.

A beautiful smile can enhance your life every day, both professionally and socially.

Have a Healthy Holiday

Planning for the holiday’s can be stressful, but don’t forget to make a dental plan as well. This time of year can bring a change in your eating and traveling habits so stay on your regular dental routine. It’s easy at the end of a fun filled day of family time and eating to forget to brush or floss as usual, but that could lead to problems later on. Make sure you pack your toothbrush and floss and stay on track.

When it comes to holiday eating, we all seem to eat more of the bad and less of the good during the holidays.  Why not this year make it a point to eat more healthy.  If you plan to travel, pack some fresh fruits or vegetables to snack on instead of stopping for that sugary treat on the road.

Also this time of the year can be very busy at our dental office. Plan ahead and get your appointment early. Call us today to make sure your appointments are scheduled and that your teeth are taken care of before the holiday rush.

Tooth Whitening – Is it for me?

Who doesn’t want a nice, white smile?  There are many products on the market to help improve your looks. While many people are pleased with the results the get from brushing twice daily, flossing between the teeth and regular visits to their dentist for cleanings, some are interested in a brighter smile.

As with any dental procedure, you should start by talking to your dentist and seeking their advise as to what would be best for you.  According to the American Dental Association’s website,

“Whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. For example, yellowish hued teeth will probably bleach well, brownish-colored teeth may bleach less well, and grayish-hued teeth may not bleach well at all. Likewise, bleaching may not enhance your smile if you have had bonding or tooth-colored fillings placed in your front teeth. The whitener will not affect the color of these materials, and they will stand out in your newly whitened smile. In these cases, you may want to investigate other options, like porcelain veneers or dental bonding.”

Tooth whitening falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry and Dr. Brogdon, a cosmetic dentist,  is highly qualified to perform cosmetic procedures that will benefit the appearance and health of your teeth.  Contact our office to see what we can do to help you have the dazzling smile you want.
