Every orthodontist knows we only get one chance to make a first impression with the people we meet. Whether we’re interviewing for a first job, presenting in front of a class or meeting a new friend, hiding a smile that isn’t what we want it to be can affect our self-confidence and keep us from feeling our best.
Numerous studies conducted by the American Dental Association http://www.ada.org confirm how important a great smile can be in our everyday lives. Our smile is what people notice about us, even before clothes, hair and shoes.
Children and adults alike need to be vigilant regarding caring for their smile. With just a little daily attention and a commitment to long-term professional dental care, there is no reason why almost anyone can’t enjoy the positive impact and personal self-satisfaction of a great smile. Dental Associates of Connecticut http://dentalassociates.us/ recommends the following steps and tips to help keep your smile looking its best.
- Brush It Off - Brush your teeth and floss at least twice a day, better yet, after every meal. Keep a small toothbrush and some floss with you so it will be handy at work and on the road.
- Earlier Is Better - Start young children’s dental care early. Children should have their first dental exam by their first birthday. This can help identify dental issues before they become a bigger source of concern.
- Get It Straight – Methods of straightening crooked teeth have come a long way. Traditional braces are now less bulky and available in different colors and materials. In fact, the orthodontists at Dental Associates of Connecticut have seen a big increase in patients requesting Invisalign http://www.invisalign.com/ clear braces which are removable for brushing and almost invisible when worn.
- Get To Know Your Dentist – Regular check ups with your dentist are the single best way to keep your teeth healthy and looking great.
- Eat Smart – Limit sugary foods, eat a balanced diet and avoid tobacco products. All of these things can produce an environment that result in weaker and less healthy teeth.
A nice smile can take you a long way. Do your part and be good to your teeth. In the long run, you’ll reap the benefits. To learn more about orthodontics, Dental Associates of Connecticut and great dental care visit http://dentalassociates.us/.
