What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and steamed broccoli? Regular exercise, and a clean bill of health? If you pictured a healthy smile with no signs of cavities or gum disease, we salute you.
At Allen Park Dental Care, we encourage everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.”
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 protect your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and make 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 Allen Park stores, so experiment until find one you like.
At Allen Park Dental Care, we help each of our patients protect their teeth and gums with thorough cleanings and regular checkups. We provide family dentistry, and use cosmetic dentistry to help some patients get the straight white teeth they’ve always wanted. Please visit our smile gallery to see what we can do!
