Philadelphia Dental Care DentistMany do not realize the true importance of maintaining good oral health. Many dental problems have effects which spill over into other areas of the body. For instance, gum disease is related to a number of health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, and strokes. Because of these risks, oral health is essential for general health. At Smile Maker, we are committed to ensuring that you receive the highest quality of dental work throughout every phase of your treatment, so you are able to maintain your oral and general health. However, oral health is a commitment which requires action every day. Therefore, we strive extend this same level of service beyond the confines of our office, and into your personal oral hygiene routine. Dr. Karagodsky and our team of dental professionals are here to provide you with crucial information, and help you to establish a dental hygiene schedule that will help you enjoy a bright, beautiful smile.
What exactly does this daily commitment to oral health mean? Well, it begins with brushing and flossing your teeth every day, in order to prevent the build up of plaque. When you brush, you should use a fluoride-based toothpaste. These help strengthen your teeth and prevent decay. In addition, diet plays a major role in the health of your teeth. We do not advise that you routinely consume foods which are high in sugar. The bacteria which cause dental plaque feed best off of sugar, so the more you eat, the more you fuel tooth decay.
Finally, you should schedule your routine dental appointments - at least twice a year - with us at Smile Maker, so as to regularly monitor your teeth for any issues which do emerge. Taking the proper Preventative Measures to keep your teeth healthy will help you create and maintain the attractive, confident smile that you deserve.
