What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and a tossed salad? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging pathway? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are in great shape? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental X-ray showing no decay, we salute you.
At Smiles For Life Dental Care, we urge everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.“
When done effectively and consistently, brushing and flossing are integral components of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush to safeguard your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes, and make certain you reach all the surfaces. Flossing should be done once a day and is necessary for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Bridgewater stores, so experiment until you find one you like.
I’m doctor Dan Whiting of Smiles For Life Dental Care. As a healthcare provider, I am passionate about helping each of my patients tap into oral health and avoid tooth and gum problems that can compromise their all-around health.
And just as some healthcare providers serve you with cosmetic procedures, I also serve you with services that improve the aesthetics of your smile.
