- December 28, 2016
It is hard to believe that 2016 is just about behind us. Thank you for trusting us to keep your family healthy this year. We have enjoyed seeing so many smiling faces at our Aventura, FL dentist’s office.
As you are thinking through your New Year’s resolutions, we hope that you will resolve to make your oral health care a priority all year long! To that end, please take a look at your calendar and get your next preventive appointment with Dr. Bistritz on the books!
In the meantime, we’d like to share some of our smile-saving tips. Keep reading, and then be sure to follow up with us to schedule that dental checkup!
Brushing Is Key!
The American Dental Association tells us that you should brush two or more times a day for two or more minutes. This will help prevent periodontal disease and cavities from taking over your mouth. Remember, there is always dangerous bacteria lurking about. Don’t give it a chance to wreak havoc.
Floss Takes It Further!
Remember: even with consistent brushing, you still won’t be able to get to all of the surfaces in your mouth where food, plaque, and other bad things can build up waiting to cause bigger problems. The spaces between your teeth are notoriously difficult to keep clean. It may hurt a little until you get used to it, but that is nothing compared to the pain and expense you’ll be facing if you don’t add this to your routine.
Using fluoride is a great way to protect your smile. That’s why we want you to make it a daily part of your routine. That won’t be hard to do since it is contained in many mouthwashes and toothpastes. Plus, your dentist can always set you up with a more intensive fluoride treatment.
Visit Your Aventura, FL Dentist!
All the work you do at home will provide the foundation. But as far as dental health goes, you can’t really get the job done all by yourself. It takes a professional to cover all the bases. Odds are, you don’t have the necessary skills and training or access to all the tools and technology that will keep your smile in top form.
The good news for you is that, when you visit our dentist’s office every 6 months, our team can provide you with professional teeth cleanings, gum disease evaluation, comprehensive checkups, diagnostic exams and advise you on cavity-prevention techniques. We can also screen for oral cancer and look for signs of other issues elsewhere in your body. You will certainly want to take advantage of such things! Also, your insurance policy likely covers most of your preventive care each year, anyway. If you have any questions about your coverage, we can help you figure that out too.
