Best Practices For A Healthy, Beautiful Smile

cosmetic dental St Charles IL

Even if you value a healthy smile, it’s easy to become complacent about smile-friendly lifestyle choices. In this blog post from David Rice DDS in Elgin, our goal is for you to evaluate where you stand, and to think about whether you could step it up a notch.

By committing to dental health best practices, you can prevent future problems and even improve your quality of life.

Brushing

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

Dental Checkups

  • Good: Call our office if you get a toothache.
  • Better: See us once a year, even if you don’t notice any dental issues.
  • Best: Get a thorough dental exam and cleaning every six months.

A White Smile

  • Good: Use a whitening toothpaste.
  • Better: Use an over-the-counter teeth whitening system at home.
  • Best: Call us for an in-office whitening treatment.

Missing Tooth

  • Good enough for some people: Ignore it. (We don’t recommend this.)
  • Better: Get a quality dental bridge.
  • Best: Ask us about a state-of-the-art dental implant.

Smile-Friendly Nutrition

  • Good: Eat a healthy 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 sugar-filled foods, avoid energy drinks and soda, and sip water throughout the day.
