7 Steps For A Healthy Smile In Raleigh

Raleigh Extreme Smile Makeover

 ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.’

Benjamin Franklin coined this phrase in the 1730s as advice for fire safety. However, like all timeless quotes, it applies to many more aspects of life in Apex, Morrisville, and Holly Springs – particularly dental health.

Keeping your smile beautiful and healthy is done most effectively with preventative measures. Here we highlight some of the most important guidelines.

1. Make a habit of brushing your teeth. Do it twice a day for 2 minutes. Be sure to use an ADA approved toothpaste and toothbrush. They can be purchased at any Cary area drugstore.

2. Don’t forget the floss! Flossing between your teeth daily will do wonders for your teeth and keep your gums healthy, too.

3. Wear a protective mouthguard whenever you are engaged in an activity where your mouth could possibly be injured. This includes many Raleigh recreation league and school sponsored sports.

4. Don’t smoke. As if you needed yet another reason not to!

5. Avoid piercing your lips, tongue, cheek, or any other part of your mouth. Piercings put you at greater risk for chipped teeth, infection, and nerve damage. It’s a dangerous Cary fashion that you’ll want to avoid.

6. Stay away from snacks that have a lot of sugar or starch.

7. Schedule regular dental visits, of course!
