How Do Teeth Affect Self-Confidence?
Tips to Lift Confidence with Healthy TeethMaintaining $Oral health
Maintaining good oral health should be the most important concern. The most fundamental of all is brushing and flossing. Make it a habit to brush teeth twice a day, accompanied by flossing at least once a day. Using an electric toothbrush is more effective to flush the bacteria which resides in between gums and teeth and on teeth surfaces to maintain a healthier mouth. An electric toothbrush is also less damaging to teeth than manual brushing, which requires scrubbing.
Regular Dental Check-ups
Dental check-ups must be done at least once every six months, as the dentist can locate decay at its initial stages and not when it’s already very involved. A dentist can also address any other symptoms which may lead to a serious problem. This will help reduce funds needed to address the issue, time spent treating it and the number of visits needed. It is always best to keep as much of the original tooth structure as possible, and early detection is the key. Treatment may be as easy as changing home care routine or adding products that are effective, holistic and non-harmful to address issues.
Consider getting whitening treatments for a whiter and brighter smile to attain greater self-esteem. The kind of food and beverages we are consuming regularly can stain our teeth. Keep in mind that whitening and home care for this procedure requires regular maintenance. As everything else in life, maintenance ensures long lasting results.
Use of Braces
Braces are used to straighten misaligned/crooked teeth. Misaligned teeth are a very common problem experienced by children, teens and even adults that either never got treatment to resolve the crowding issue or those that did get orthodontics treatment but did not use retainers regularly to maintain their alignment. Using retainers to maintain bite alignment is very important as one ages and matures, since over time, teeth tend to collect and crowd in the lower and upper front teeth areas. This can lead to malocclusion, which can allow teeth to hit inappropriately, leading to chips, fractures and excessive wear.
