Dental care tips you need to know
- Posted on: Mar 30 2021
Everyone knows that maintain a healthy smile includes three main components, including brushing the teeth, flossing the smile, and visiting the dentist regularly for cleanings and examinations. But do you know WHY this is important? Do you know that preventative care can set the foundation for a healthier smile—and body—for life? Dr. David Frey and his team in Beverly Hills, California can educate patients in the area learn about the importance of good oral health care habits.
Dental care tips and facts
- You are in control of your oral health. What you do between dental visits contributes dramatically to your overall health and wellness. If you make oral health a priority, you will be rewarded with a healthier, more beautiful smile! Remember to brush your teeth after every meal, use a fluoride toothpaste, use a soft-bristled brush, and floss between meals.
- Visit the dentist regularly. To prevent dental problems, you will also want to visit the dentist every six months as recommended by the American Dental Association. By doing so, you can build a lasting, trusting relationship with your dental provider, while at the same time monitoring your oral health to ensure there are no problems developing when you’re not aware.
- Preventing gum disease protects the heart. Did you know that gum disease, or “periodontal disease,” is linked to heart disease? The bacteria that develops in the mouth can spread through the bloodstream and impact other organs in the body. Many patients diagnosed with heart disease also have periodontal disease, which strengthens the link and makes it more important than ever to keep the smile healthy with proper care.
- Seek care when needed. If you develop sensitivity or a toothache, it is vital that you contact your dentist right away. Any changes in your oral health may be an indication of a problem that needs attention. Patients who avoid seeing their dentist may result in a more expensive and damaging problem versus a more proactive approach of visiting when these problems first begin.
