Don't forget your teeth when it comes to Spring Cleaning!

TOP 3 REASONS TO GET A SPRING CLEANING FOR YOUR TEETH!

SPRING IS HERE! THE LONGER DAYLIGHT HOURS AND WARMER WEATHER MEAN SPRING CLEANING FOR A LOT OF US. THIS YEAR, TAKE AN HOUR OUT OF YOUR DUSTING AND ORGANIZING TO TREAT YOURSELF TO A LITTLE SPRING CLEANING OF YOUR TEETH!  HERE ARE THE TOP 3 REASONS TO GET REGULAR DENTAL CLEANINGS.

* REASON NUMBER ONE:  CLEAN, HEALTHY TEETH ARE ATTRACTIVE 
ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO KEEP YOUR SMILE BRIGHT AND SHINY IS TO HAVE THEM PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED AT LEAST EVERY SIX MONTHS. JUST LIKE YOUR HOME, REGULAR MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING DOES NOT REACH ALL THE NOOKS AND CRANNIES. YOU DO SOME EXTENSIVE CLEANING AND ORGANIZING A COUPLE OF TIMES A YEAR TO KEEP THOSE HARD TO REACH AREAS CLEAN. THE SAME GOES FOR YOUR TEETH! REGULAR BRUSHING AND FLOSSING IS GREAT, BUT TO KEEP TEETH REALLY CLEAN AND HEALTHY, A PROFESSIONAL CLEANING IS THE ONLY WAY TO REMOVE CERTAIN TYPES OF PLAQUE AND TARTAR BUILD UP.
* REASON NUMBER TWO:  EARLY DETECTION OF DENTAL PROBLEMS
IF YOU DON’T CLEAN OUT THE CLOSET, YOU NEVER SEE WHAT’S BEHIND ALL THE JUNK!  HAVING YOUR TEETH PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED ALSO MEANS THAT A THOROUGH AND CAREFUL INSPECTION OF EACH TOOTH’S HEALTH AND CONDITION WILL TAKE PLACE. IF THERE IS A SMALL PROBLEM, SUCH AS A SMALL AREA OF DECAY, IT CAN BE SPOTTED EARLY AND REPAIRED BEFORE IT BECOMES A BIGGER, MORE PAINFUL OR EXPENSIVE DENTAL PROBLEM. 
* REASON NUMBER THREE: PROFESSIONAL CLEANING HELPS PREVENT GUM DISEASE
A PROFESSIONAL DENTAL CLEANING REMOVES PLAQUE AND TARTAR FROM BELOW THE GUMLINE AND IN HARD TO REACH AREAS. BACTERIA FOUND IN PLAQUE HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO CAUSE GUM DISEASE. KEEPING YOUR TEETH BRIGHT, SHINY AND PLAQUE FREE HELPS MAINTAIN HEALTHY GUMS. IF IT’S BEEN A WHILE SINCE YOUR LAST PROFESSIONAL DENTAL CLEANING, NEVER FEAR! IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO GET BACK ON TRACK TO GOOD ORAL HEALTH!

OTHER HELPFUL REMINDERS!

 * TAKE TIME FOR TOOTHBRUSH CARE

WHILE CLEANING UP THE REST OF THE HOUSE FROM THE WINTER BLUES, TAKE A MOMENT TO CONSIDER HOW LONG IT’S BEEN SINCE YOU’VE HAD A NEW TOOTHBRUSH. IT’S IMPORTANT TO BUY NEW TOOTHBRUSHES AND CHANGE THEM OUT ON A REGULAR BASIS – EVERY THREE MONTHS IS A GOOD GUIDELINE. MAKE SURE THE TOOTHBRUSH YOU CHOOSE FITS COMFORTABLY IN YOUR HAND AND YOUR MOUTH, AND THAT THE BRISTLES ARE SOFT TO AVOID ANY UNNECESSARY INJURY TO GUM TISSUE. SINCE IT’S COLD AND FLU SEASON, IT’S ALSO ESSENTIAL TO REMEMBER TO PROMOTE LONG-TERM GOOD HEALTH BY REPLACING YOUR TOOTHBRUSH TO AVOID SPREADING GERMS.

* SPRING INTO A WELLNESS ROUTINE

IN THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE WINTER HOLIDAYS, IT’S EASY TO LET LIFE TAKE OVER AND SLIP OUT OF GOOD HABITS LIKE BRUSHING AND FLOSSING TEETH REGULARLY. RE-ESTABLISH THESE GOOD DENTAL HABITS NOW THAT SPRING HAS ARRIVED!START WITH BRUSHING YOUR TEETH TWICE A DAY, ONCE IN THE MORNING AND ONCE AT NIGHT BEFORE BED. TO PROTECT TEETH EVEN MORE, CARRY A TRAVEL TOOTHBRUSH IN YOUR PURSE OR CAR IN ORDER TO BRUSH AFTER EATING A HEALTHY LUNCH.FLOSS OR FLOSS PICKS ARE ALSO VERY CONVENIENT TOOLS TO HAVE IN YOUR PURSE OR CAR. FLOSS IS AN IMPORTANT BUT OFTEN NEGLECTED WAY TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR TEETH BY GETTING FOOD PARTICLES AND PLAQUE BUILD UP OUT OF HARD TO REACH AREAS BETWEEN TEETH. IT’S ESSENTIAL FOR GOOD DENTAL HEALTH TO FLOSS ONCE A DAY – BEFORE BED IS THE EASIEST WAY TO MAKE IT PART OF A GOOD DENTAL ROUTINE!
