Are you ready to keep your smile healthy in the new year? One important way to do this is to stick with a consistent oral hygiene routine. Another is to make sure you have plans for preventive dental services. At our Houston, TX dentist’s office, we can meet with you to provide welcome care to help you stay safe from problems like tooth decay and gum disease. During your visits, we can also look out for warning signs of TMJ disorder and bruxism, problems that can hurt your dental function and quality of life. Of course, we are able to provide more than just support for your oral health, as we can also recommend cosmetic services to improve your smile for the new year (and beyond)!
Is Your Current Approach To Smile Care Going To Keep You Healthy?
Did your efforts to care for your smile in 2021 keep you safe from tooth decay, gum disease, and other issues? Hopefully, you spent the past year without any of the issues that make a trip to the dentist’s office necessary. Even if you did, it can be a good idea to look at how you can make improvements to your oral hygiene routine. You should make regular dental checkups and cleanings a priority. Without them, you lose out on valuable protection against different oral health difficulties. It is also important that you look out for common mistakes people make when it comes to at-home care. These mistakes can include overlooking the importance of flossing, using the same brush past the point where its bristles start to wear down, and making poor diet decisions.
Keeping Up With Preventive Dental Appointments
Your regular preventive dental visits provide you with important updates about the state of your smile and oral health. We can offer you important updates about whether you have any issues with dental decay or gum disease that should be addressed. In addition to this, we can check on the alignment and movement of your jaw to watch for imbalances that can lead to chronic discomfort. Unless told otherwise, you should make sure you have appointments set every six months to stay informed about your dental well-being.
Are You Interested In Cosmetic Work For The New Year
In addition to helping you preserve your dental health, we can actually help you make exciting improvements to your smile! The right cosmetic dental procedure can be completed in one or two appointments. After this work is done, you can see exciting changes in the symmetry and color of your smile, hide visible flaws due to damaged or misshapen teeth, and even cover some problems with gaps and overlaps!
