Three Simple Steps to Oral Health
What does it mean to make your dental care a priority? Practicing good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing, and visiting the dentist are more than just healthy habits, you’re preventing the onset of potentially serious and costly oral health complications. Understanding what healthy oral hygiene means and how to achieve it makes prioritizing dental care simple.
At Great Expressions Dental Centers, we believe that everyone should have access to affordable and quality dental care. Beyond a bright smile and fresh breath, dental care visits help to combat oral health complications like tooth decay, gum disease or even heart disease. That’s right…heart disease. In addition, with our Smile Protection Plan, members can save up to 60% on a number of dental services, making it easier to prioritize your oral health.
Additionally, there are several ways to implement healthy oral hygiene habits at home.
Monitor your diet: Foods rich in vitamins A, C, and D play a critical role in building strong enamel. Try incorporating more of these nutrients into your diet to fend off the development of cavities.
Visit your dentist: It’s sounds obvious, but too many people don’t visit their dentist each year. Routine dental visits are important to help remove additional plaque and tartar buildup and monitor for the development of dental complications like cavities, oral cancer, and gum disease. Try booking your next appointment after each cleaning to ensure you stay on schedule with your annual visits.
Know your options: Dental office visits and procedures can be costly without insurance. Nevertheless, that shouldn’t interfere with prioritizing dental care. We’re here to ensure that great dental care is available to help everyone protect their healthy smile without breaking the bank.
Prioritizing dental care may seem tedious, but your mouth and your body will thank you for years to come. You don’t have to manage your dental care alone. Our dedicated team at Great Expressions is here to support your healthy lifestyle beyond our offices. Be sure to ask about doctor recommended products, available in our offices at discounted prices, during your next appointment to enhance your at-home dental care routine.
