Healthy Lifestyles For Healthy Lifesmiles

Dental Health From Your Davidson Dentist

Dental health and a beautiful smile depend on much more than simply brushing regularly. In today’s post for Dennis J Coleman DDS – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we present a quick refresher course on important lifestyle practices that affect oral health. You are probably familiar with most of these recommendations, but it is helpful to get a reminder once in a while. We encourage all of our patients to maintain a lifestyle that promotes dental health as well as overall physical health. After all, the two are inseparable.

DO:

Eat a nutritious diet.
Eat calcium-rich dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt to neutralize acids that attack enamel.
Brush gently but meticulously at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
Make sure you clean thoroughly between teeth with dental floss or inter-dental cleaners such as flossing picks to help prevent gum disease.
If you have children, talk to your Charlotte dentist about water fluoridation. If your municipal water supply is not fluoridated, you may want to give your children fluoride supplements.
Get your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year.
Have a dental examination twice yearly with your Davidson dentist.

DON’T:

Eat sugar frequently. Sugar triggers the production of dangerous cavity-causing acids that weaken enamel.
Snack throughout the day. This speeds up plaque production and subjects the teeth to constant bombardment with acids.
Chew on ice.
Use your teeth as tools. Ever.
Drink energy drinks.
Get oral piercings.
Ignore tooth pain or sensitivity.

If you have oral pain or haven’t visited a dentist in a while, call Dennis J Coleman DDS – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry  at 704-765-5085 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Dennis Coleman. Tooth problems get worse over time – especially if there is decay or gum disease.
