Make The Most Of Your Smile This Summer!
Welcome to the Clearwater Dental Associates blog!
Our commitment to family dental care extends beyond just treating your family. That’s because we treat you with the sort of respect and kindness that will make you feel like you are part of our family! As such, we won’t ever try to pressure you into unnecessary treatment or push the most expensive alternatives on you. We are here, as your partner in oral health, to provide what you want in terms of dental solutions, at any given time, and to recommend anything else you may need to consider for the future.
And looking into the not-so-distant future, it is hard to believe that Memorial Day weekend is almost here!
As we head into summer, folks in these parts are already out kayaking and canoeing, going for evening walks on pier 60, soaking up the afternoon sun at various beaches, and rocking out to live music all over town.
But with all those great things going on, we want to make sure you don’t forget to make the most of your smile this season! To help you stay focused, our oral health care team has assembled some suggestions for keeping your mouth fresh and your smile looking great.
Keep reading, and then be sure to follow up with one of our staff members to schedule your next preventive dental appointment in our Clearwater, Florida office!
Sugar-Free Is The Way To Be
We get it: a frosty fountain soda or a frozen treat is hard to resist, especially when you are lounging by the seaside, or out and about. But these refreshments won’t be good for your smile in the long run because all that sugar will feed the bacteria that produces decay.
Drink Plenty Of Water
Drinking water will help keep bad breath at bay. That’s because water allows you to make enough saliva to destroy the bad-breath-causing bacteria.
Brush Like You Mean It
Even in the lazy days of summer, you should still be brushing your teeth for 2 minutes or more, at least twice each day. This will help keep cavities and disease from causing trouble, and it will leave a good taste in your mouth.
Floss As Well
In order to really get to the plaque and tartar that remains between your teeth and in other hard to reach places, dental floss is the weapon you will want on your side.
Rinse With A Fluoride Mouthwash
There are good fluoride mouthwashes available now that can deliver an added layer of protection to your smile!
Put CDA On Your Calendar!
It only makes sense to keep us in the loop this summer because our expertly administered teeth cleanings can eradicate any bacteria, tartar, or plaque that remains.
Plus, our oral exams will give us all a clue as to what is unfolding in your mouth. We can help you detect signs of gum disease, tooth decay, and even cancer.
We also offer additional prevention opportunities such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
Because of all that, we think that visiting us every 3-6 months is always the best thing you can do for your smile!
Keep Smiling This Summer!
