Back To Basics: Things Your Smile Really Needs

When you really get right down to it, you can very easily protect your oral health. However, if you have never really spent a moment reflecting on what your smile needs in order to remain in good shape, then the process of keeping things in order can feel a bit scattered and uncertain rather than streamlined and easy. Take some time with our Springfield, OH team as we explore preventive care (and more) that will ensure you are doing all that you need for your teeth and gums!

Your Grin Needs Care From You Every Day

We know that talking about brushing and flossing isn’t very exciting. Well, to you anyway! However, from our perspective, we often feel quite overjoyed when we get to communicate to you that dental hygiene takes care of most of your smile’s preventive needs. It’s just four minutes of brushing and one efficient and effective flossing session each day that guides your smile, so it stays nice and healthy. Of course, if you ever have any questions, just let us know!

It Always, Always Needs Professional Preventive Care

As mentioned, you need preventive care if you want to maintain your smile health. As for what that includes in addition to your care at home, it will always include professional prevention. If this sounds like a big deal, it isn’t! We only need to see your lovely smile two times each year, once for a dental checkup and cleaning, then again six months later for your second dental checkup and cleaning! See? Easy yet very important.

When Problems Arise, It Needs Immediate Repairs!

Now let’s talk about what happens when you’ve been doing a pretty good job with your preventive care but a problem shows up. Maybe you damage a tooth on accident. Perhaps a bit of plaque leads to a cavity. Whatever the case, when we see you for one of your visits and we discover you need a repair, your smile needs that restorative care from us. Otherwise, your oral health will decline. (Good news: Treatments with us are relaxing and comfortable!).

Sometimes, It Needs Orthodontics!

If you’re just not thrilled with the way your smile looks, then aligning it may be all about your preferences. However, if you suffer from true misalignment, then you may be chasing good oral health for the rest of your life until you follow through with orthodontic care! We offer comprehensive treatment options to get you there.
