Love Your Teeth!

Do you love your pearly whites? Even when they are giving you trouble or pain? If you don’t now, hopefully you will when you take a moment to realize all that they really do for you.  Then you can give them the love and attention that they deserve.

  • Your smile is one of the first things other people notice about you.  Not only does it add value to your appearance, but it also sends a message about YOU.  It doesn’t tell anyone how much money you have, whether you’re vain or how successful you are.  But it does say you care about yourself, your health and your appearance. Your healthy smile projects self-confidence, which draws people to you.
  • Your teeth can also be a sign of your overall health.  Dark spots, missing or decayed teeth and swollen gums can lead not only to oral struggles but major health problems as well.
  • If you keep your teeth healthy, you are able to eat just about any kind of food you want. Unless you’ve lost a tooth or two or suffer from other gum or oral issues, this has probably never crossed your mind.  Get some perspective.  Ask anyone who is missing teeth and they will let you know that you are taking your culinary freedom for granted.
  • If your teeth and gums are unhealthy, you could suffer mild to severe pain, including lesions, ulcers and dry mouth.  These issues can also lead to oral cancers.

Now that you know what your teeth can do for you, show them the love by brushing after meals, flossing daily and going on regular visits to our office.  Your teeth will love you back!

And never forget – we love your teeth too!
