Best Practices For A Perfect Smile in Farmington NM

perfect smile in farmington nm

Even if you value a healthy smile, it’s easy to become somewhat lax about smile-friendly lifestyle choices. In today’s post, our goal is for you to assess where you stand and examine whether you could step it up a notch.  Instead of looking at the good, the bad and the ugly, we’ve decided to put together a list of best practices in order from Good, Better, and Best practices. Committing to oral health best practices can prevent future problems and benefit your quality of life, giving you the perfect smile in Farmington NM.

Brushing Options

Good: Brush teeth once a day.
Better: Brush teeth correctly after each meal.
Best: Brush after each meal and floss correctly before bed.

Dental Checkup Options

Good: See your dentist if you get a toothache.
Better: See dentist once a year even if you don’t notice any dental problems.
Best: Have a thorough dental exam and professional dental cleaning at Sundance Dental & Orthodontics twice a year.

Teeth Whitening Options

Good: Use a whitening toothpaste.
Better: Use an OTC tooth whitening system at home.
Best: Schedule an in-office whitening treatment at Sundance Dental & Orthodontics for a perfect smile in Farmington NM.

Missing Tooth Options

Good: Get a temporary denture to hide the missing tooth.
Better: Get a quality dental bridge.
Best: Restore your smile with a beautiful, secure, and natural-functioning dental implant by consulting with Sundance Dental & Orthodontics to find out if you are a good candidate for an implant.

Nutritional Options

Good: Eat a healthy and wholesome diet.
Better: Eat a healthy diet and limit sugary snacks and beverages.
Best: Eat a wholesome diet, limit between-meal snacking, eat lots of calcium-rich foods, minimize sugary foods, abstain from energy drinks and soda, and sip water throughout the day to keep acid at bay.

For Young Smiles

Good: Never put your infant to bed with a bottle. When your toddler starts drinking from sippy-cup, don’t let them sip juice or milk all day.
Better: Follow the previous guidance and schedule his/her first dental checkup before the first birthday.
Best: In addition, talk to a dentist about dental sealants when your child is young. When your little athlete starts participating in sports, make sure he/she wears a protective mouth guard. Set a good example of daily dental hygiene and healthy lifestyle choices.
