March 6 is National Dentists Day, and this entire week is National Dental Assistants Recognition Week. In honor of these observances, we've put together this list of tips for making sure your teeth are as beautiful and healthy as they can be.
Dr. Craig Carlson has been practicing dentistry for over 40 years, and he gets great fulfillment out of creating beautiful smiles for his patients. He knows that people often dread going to the dentist, and it's his mission to make sure that his patients have as comfortable and enjoyable an experience as possible. This is why we offer top of the line amenities as well as fresh baked cookies every day!
To keep your smile in tip top shape, you should practice the following habits:
- Brush at least twice a day
- Floss at least once a day
- Visit us every six months for regular checkups and cleanings
- Rinse your mouth with water after drinking coffee, wine, or other drinks that can stain teeth
- Try not to eat too many sweets or junk foods
- Follow any personalized advice Dr. Carlson gives you
If your smile needs a little more work, we offer cosmetic dentistry treatments such as porcelain veneers as well as restorative dentistry procedures such as dental crowns. Your smile is the first thing people notice about you on first meeting, and having a great smile can lead to higher self-confidence and better first impressions.
Your oral health is also highly important to your overall health. Poor oral health has been shown to correlate with higher risk for issues such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory infections, certain types of cancer, and even dementia. We'll help you cultivate oral hygiene habits to keep your mouth healthy.
