Whether it’s for eating, speaking, or flashing a spectacular smile, your teeth are always ready for a full day of work, even on vacations and holidays.
Yet, how do your teeth feel about you? Do they show that they’re well maintained and highly regarded, or do they appear neglected and under-appreciated? What can you do to show your teeth some love both day and night?
- Keep Teeth Maintained: Brushing and flossing teeth on a daily basis fortifies them in defending against the formidable foes of plaque, tooth decay, and gum disease. Bi-annual visits to your dentist for professional cleanings and check-ups also help keep your smile in optimum working order, and allow for early detection of abnormalities like oral cancer.
- Boost Confidence: Smiles display a greater eagerness to be in the limelight if they’re healthy, happy, and possess self-confidence. Sometimes teeth need some professional assistance to improve their aesthetic beauty. Modern options including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and Invisalign are among some of the top ways to show your smile some love.
- Wear Protection: An active lifestyle, including playing high-impact sports can also lead to damage due to accident or injury. Wearing a mouthguard is therefore a vital part in keeping teeth protected. Unlike one-size-fits-all mouthguards available at sporting good stores, a custom-made mouthguard is created by your dentist to fit your mouth perfectly. It’s also comprised of more durable materials, will last much longer, and offers better protection than standard boil-and-bite mouthguards . Cottonwood dental has a variety of options for mouthguards in Highlands Ranch.
- Night-time Security: The fact that you’re fast asleep doesn’t automatically mean your teeth are out of harms way. Brushing teeth before going to bed helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease from partying in your mouth while you rest. Furthermore, teeth can be susceptible to unnecessary wear and tear due to nighttime clenching and teeth grinding. Your dentist-crafted, customized night-guard (link to webpage) protects your teeth while you sleep. These guards provide a smooth, even surface that cushions teeth from tooth-on-tooth grinding, preserving the integrity of the teeth, and helping prevent TMJ disorder.
Your teeth work hard for you, and are made to last a lifetime, but remember they’re not indestructible. Maintain your smile at it’s peak performance and show your teeth some love by taking the necessary steps to protect your pearly whites both day and night.
