We need to look after our teeth all year and especially over Christmas. After all, who wants to be stuck in the dentist’s practice over Christmas? Keeping our teeth happy and healthy is the best way to avoid any unwanted surprises this Christmas.
Visiting your dentist regularly and keeping on top of your oral hygiene is the way to keep a high standard of oral hygiene.
Here at Smilecraft, we also offer a wide range of treatments to keep your teeth looking beautiful, as well as feeling great. The demand for treatments like teeth whitening and cosmetic braces has grown in recent years and so has the number of options available to patients.
Keeping your teeth clean
The most important part of your oral hygiene routine is brushing. Your dentist usually advises to brush at least twice a day. This number can be higher, depending on your habits, dental history and if you wear braces or not.
Although brushing is the most important part of your oral hygiene routine, flossing at least once a day is also important. Many dentists will also recommend using an anti-bacterial mouthwash to keep the nasty bacteria away from your teeth.
Many people also forget to brush and clean their tongue. This is an important part of maintaining a high standard of oral hygiene.
Why is visiting the dentist so important?
Having a friendly dentist that you can visit regularly is important because a dentist can evaluate your overall oral health and spot any problems before they turn into an issue.
During a regular check-up at Smilecraft, your dentist will check for any signs of tooth decay that may need treatment. This treatment could come in the form of a filling or maybe root canal therapy for more serious cases.
At Smilecraft we can treat most dental issues and make your teeth live their full potential. If it’s getting that extra shine or straightening your teeth to perfection you want, we have the treatment for you.
If you have any questions about any treatments, come in for a visit at Smilecraft, and from all of the team here in Stevenage: Merry Christmas.
