Live a Healthy Lifestyle
- Go to the Dentist
Visiting the dentist twice a year for preventive dental treatments is beneficial for your overall health. General dentist prevention care visits include a cleaning, x-ray, sealant, and an oral exam. This will keep your teeth clean and prevent problems like tooth pain, bleeding gums, and periodontitis. Yet, oral hygiene is more than only visiting the dentist.
- Maintain Good Oral Hygiene
It is very important to have a daily at-home oral care routine. Make sure you brush your teeth for two minutes at least twice a day. For proper brushing, put a pea-sized amount of toothpaste on your toothbrush. Move the toothbrush gently along your teeth in a circular motion. Don’t forget to brush your tongue and gums, too! It’s best to brush after meals and before you go to sleep. Besides brushing, make sure you’re flossing your teeth once a day.
- Eat Well
You eat your fruits and veggies to maintain a healthy body. But did you know there are some dietary habits that promote your oral health? Along with being good for your body, water is good for your teeth because it washes away sticky foods. Limit your sugary food intake because sugars turn acidic in your mouth. Acid breaks down tooth enamel, which contributes to the formation of cavities.
- Stay Active
While your oral health is connected to your entire well-being, your teeth aren’t the only part of the body that needs maintenance. Keep your body in great shape by enjoying daily exercise in the great Alaskan outdoors!
- Return to the Dentist
To maintain your oral health, you should visit the dentist every six months for a cleaning and check-up. We can’t wait to see your smile again!
