Today’s article is for men and women who are frustrated because they haven’t been successful at making some changes that will benefit their oral health, giving them a beautiful smile in East Lake. We urge you to keep trying and we assure you that the team of dental professionals at Prestige Dentistry is eager to help.
Keep Trying To Floss
Many men and women are dutiful about brushing and believe that it makes up for lack of flossing. This is a misconception. Flossing is the only way to clean food debris and plaque from the gum line. Failure to floss can lead to periodontal disease which can, in turn, lead to tooth loss. We urge everyone to make it a habit to floss properly every day. If you are not sure how to floss correctly, any one of the personable dental hygienists at Prestige Dentistry would be eager to teach you. Call 727-789-1980 to schedule a professional dental cleaning and to attain a beautiful smile in East Lake.
Keep Trying to Overcome Dental Anxiety
Skipping dental checkups can have dangerous, and in some cases, irreversible oral health consequences. Severe cavities or delayed diagnosis of oral cancer are two potential dangers. If you are afraid of going to the dentist, you are not alone. Fortunately, there are many ways to manage this, such as sedation dentistry which helps patients undergo exams and any necessary procedures comfortably. Talk to Dr. Dentistry if you or a family member suffers from dental anxiety.
Keep Trying to Quit Tobacco
Smoking is just as dangerous for your teeth and gums as it is for other parts of your body. If you’ve tried unsuccessfully to kick the habit, it’s clear that you value your health and want to lower your risk for all the issues caused by smoking, chewing, or vaping. Many smokers do not overcome the habit the first time, but there’s hope! According to the CDC, there are now more former smokers than current users. Each of those former smokers was once right where you are. Keep trying!
Sometimes a little help can make all the difference. We offer services that will enhance your beautiful smile in East Lake, such as gum disease treatment, laser dentistry, and sleep apnea treatment. Call Prestige Dentistry at 727-789-1980 to schedule an appointment.
