What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and carrot sticks? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging path? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are in top shape? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental X-ray showing no decay, we salute you.
At Cary Family Dental, we encourage everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.”
When done correctly and consistently, brushing and flossing are fundamental components of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush to guard your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes, and make sure you reach all the surfaces.
Flossing should be done once a day and is needed for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Cary stores, so experiment until finding one you like.
I’m Dr. Allan Acton of Cary Family Dental. As a healthcare provider, I am dedicated to helping each of my patients experience oral health and avoid tooth problems that can compromise their all-around health.
And just as some healthcare providers provide cosmetic procedures, I also offer services that improve the aesthetics of your smile. Ask us about porcelain veneers, dental implants, invisible braces, white fillings, inlays/onlays, and same-day teeth whitening.
