Wichita area Dentist explains Dental Care Tips for a healthy smile

A beautiful smile is also a healthy smile. Oral health can improve self-confidence and have a positive effect on the rest of the body. Oral systemic connections have shown that problems within the smile can be carried through to other parts of the body. Patients with periodontal disease may be at a higher risk of developing other concerns including diabetes, heart disease, and strokes. By maintaining oral health, patients can enjoy better health and wellness for life. This is why the team of East Wichita Dentist provides patients with a variety of dental care tips.

Patients are encouraged to visit their dentist regularly for cleanings, examinations, and x-rays to ensure overall dental health. Most patients will benefit from two visits a year, but more may be necessary for patients who are struggling with dental concerns or who are at a higher risk of dental problems, including those with diabetes and osteoporosis. Patients should always schedule these visits and maintain them for optimum oral health.

Patients are also educated on how to care for their smiles at home. Between dental visits, patients should brush and floss their teeth after every meal to remove food particles, plaque, and bacteria. This can reduce problems such as bad breath and the development of cavities.

Problems such as abscessed teeth, dry mouth, toothaches, teeth grinding, bleeding gums, and bad breath should always be mentioned to a dental professional. These may be signs of other problems such as infected teeth, dental decay, or periodontal disease. The earlier these problems are caught, the easier they are to address.

Patients can also speak to their dentist about the products necessary for maintaining a healthy smile. Special toothbrushes, medicated mouthwashes, water picks, mouth guards, and other products may help in maintaining oral health. Patients who are at a higher risk for cavities may also ask their dentist about the possibility of fluoride treatments or sealants, which can reduce problems.

At East Wichita Dentist, we believe everyone has the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile for life. Contact our practice today to start on the journey to good oral health care.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
