Best Practices For A Healthy, Beautiful Smile

cosmetic dental Salt Lake City

Even if you value a healthy smile, it's easy to become somewhat lax about smile-friendly lifestyle choices. In today's post, our goal is for you to evaluate where you stand and examine whether you could step it up a notch. Committing to oral health best practices can prevent future problems and benefit your quality of life.

Brushing

Good: Brush teeth once a day.
Better: Brush teeth normally after each meal.
Best: Brush after each meal and floss normally before bed.

Dental Checkups

Good: See your dentist if you get a toothache.
Better: See Doctor Bateman once a year even if you don't notice any dental problems.
Best: Twice-yearly, have a comprehensive dental exam and professional dental cleaning at Bateman Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry.

A White Smile

Good: Use a whitening toothpaste.
Better: Use a tooth whitening system at home.
Best: Schedule an in-office tooth bleaching procedure.

Missing Tooth

Good enough for some people: Ignore it. (We don't recommend this.)
Better: Get a quality dental bridge.
Best: Restore your smile with a beautiful, durable, and natural-functioning dental implant. (Consult with Doctor Bateman to find out if you are a good candidate for an implant.)

Smile-Friendly Nutrition

Good: Eat a sensible diet.
Better: Eat a healthy diet and limit sugary snacks and beverages.
Best: Eat a healthy diet, limit between-meal snacking, eat lots of calcium-rich foods, minimize sugary foods, abstain from energy drinks and soda, and sip water throughout the day to keep acid at bay.

For Young Smiles

Good: Never put your infant to bed with a bottle. When your toddler starts drinking from sippy-cup, don't let them sip juice or milk all day.
Better: Follow the previous guidance and schedule his/her first dental checkup before the first birthday.
Best: In addition, communicate with Doctor Bateman about dental sealants when your child is young. When your little athlete starts participating in sports, make sure he/she wears a protective mouthguard. Set a good example of daily dental hygiene and healthy lifestyle choices.
