A smile—it’s usually the first thing a person looks at. You want to present a welcoming and confident image because first impressions are very important. Not everyone has the desire to smile, but research has shown that smiling, even forcing it, can improve your overall disposition. And there is one factor that makes smiling a lot easier—good oral health. And your dentists in Beaumont, Drs. Helene Suh and Gerard Cascio can’t stress enough the benefits of having good oral health.
Oral Health and Your Smile
It’s a hectic world in which we live in, so it’s easy to lose focus of what’s important—your health. You brush and floss your teeth, but it might not be as thorough as you think. As you age, so do your teeth. Over the years, you expose your teeth to sugar, acid and stress (from chewing). If you want to maintain your health and your teeth, you need to give them extra care and attention. Bad oral hygiene spurs tooth decay, gingivitis and gum disease. To combat dental problems, your Beaumont, TX dentist advises you do the following:
Wait thirty minutes after every meal to brush, or at least brush twice a day
  • Floss on a daily basis
  • Make sure to keep an eye out for any abnormalities in the mouth
  • Schedule regular checkups with your dentist
  • Maintain a healthy diet full of greens
When you have a strict oral hygiene regiment, you end up removing countless number of bacteria in the mouth. Plus, brushing and flossing helps remove surface stains left behind by food and beverages. With proper care, your teeth will feel and look clean—and that is something to smile about. If you need dental advice or a regular dental checkup, talk to one of your dentists in Beaumont.
