A Youthful Healthy Smile

 

A genuine smile can be a powerful thing. Studies have been shown to associate smiling and laughter with a better over all health. Have you seen anyone smile or laugh and try to hide their teeth? That is not a healthy smile. True fact, someone who is not happy with their teeth will not laugh as much because a laugh starts with a smile. It’s time to start thinking of your teeth as a true over all health benefit if maintained. Oral health is the beginning to all health, good or bad. So much is associated with oral hygiene.
Spring has finally approached us. Beautiful flowers are blooming, vacations are planned, winter wardrobes are being tucked away. I would like to remind you, your beautiful smile is here to stay, every day, every season. Prioritize your dental health by keeping up on your periodic cleanings and exams. Whitening seems to be a popular touch right now as well. Everyone is interested in keeping their youth for as long as they can. One factor in doing that is a beautiful, truly happy smile.

Thank you,

Fall, Autumn, Football Season. Whatever You Want To Call It, It’s Here!

fall-blog-pic

Oh the beautiful season of Fall. The leaves are turning color so fast. The excitement to finally be able to pull out those cute boots out of the closet. Fall sports are everywhere, with our favorite football team playing every Monday. High school homecomings are memories that last a lifetime. Warm bonfires at night, along with hoodies, pumpkin spice, fall scented candles, fall soups. My favorite time of year. It reminds me to slow time down and enjoy everything now because winter vastly approaches every year. It’s kind of like we get lost in all the hypnotics of the season, and that’s okay. I could live in a pumpkin spice, hoodie, bonfire world for the rest of my life. Truly believe me, I want time to slow down too.

Oh but then reality sinks in. The hectic time of winter will be approaching fast and creep up on the majority. Please take a moment and to think about any insurance benefits you have remaining to use, and use them now. You don’t want to miss out on some benefits because you got carried away with the beautiful season. Schedule your cleanings or any work for that matter now. Spots are becoming more limited as each day goes by. There are still a few spots left in November. If you have a family member or a friend, or new neighbor remind them to get an appointment secured now. Take advantage of your full benefits! You are already paying for it, you might as well use it, right?? Anyhow, enjoy the beautiful season, schedule your appointment now, for beginning of the winter months, bam! You have just accomplished the best of both world’s. Take care, See you soon!

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month

Hello fellow brushers, Since February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, here are a few pointers. We all know kids love their sweets. Getting them in to the habits of good oral health early on is so beneficial for the life of their teeth. Rinsing with water twice a day or right after sweets does wonders just getting those sugars washed out of there mouths.

Kids Act mouthwash that acts like a spy in their mouths to point the bad residues of missed brushing spots. Use this, make it fun, identify the spots not being reached and have your child brush again to “attack” the sugars and plaque off of those teeth.

It is so hard to get kids to floss sometimes, we all know. Use the fun child size Plakers or Flossers, lot’s of brands out there. Try them and see what works best for your little ones. Best time to floss is right before bed. Have a nice clean mouth with minimal bacteria to sit for 8 hours while you sleep.

The absolute best drink of choice is water. With that said, tap water is the best. Tap water has the benefits of fluoride, that most bottled water does not contain.
Rinse with tap water and drink it. If your little one is wanting that juice, that is okay in moderation, however, do not sip throughout the day. Drink your juice and just be done with it. Milk also contains sugars as well. A timely exposure to the sugars and acids in milk or juice are not beneficial for your teeth at all.

Floss Like A Boss Challenge

Okay, this is day 2 of our Floss Challenge!!
How are we doing so far?? Any bleeding while flossing? That will eventually go away, keep up the flossing. Do you have a bad odor when flossing?? That will go away also. You are smelling the bacteria you are pulling up from your gums. Keep up the good work with this floss challenge. If you missed the start date, that is okay, start now!! Please feel free to post any ideas or questions in this floss challenge.
Thanks, Dr. April Hearns and the Dentistry Details Team
