Ottawa Cosmetic Dentistry Provider Gives Patients Resolutions for Improved Oral Health
Ottawa cosmetic dentistry provider Dr. David Bartos and his partner Dr. Mark Northcott share tips to help families enjoy improved oral health in 2013.
OTTAWA, ONTARIO - Dental health and overall health go hand in hand. The Ottawa cosmetic dentistry†team at Trillium Dental gives patients three steps to enjoy better dental health in 2012.
1. Oral Hygiene: The first step to optimum oral health is to practice good oral hygiene habits. Patients should floss at least once daily and brush at least twice daily. Flossing loosens pieces of food between the teeth, and brushing eliminates the loose food bacteria.
Patients should floss between every tooth and brush every visible surface. Patients can exceed these minimum goals and keep cleaner, healthier mouths.Patients should not eat or drink after nightly brushing, with the exception of drinking water. Bacteria feed on the lingering starch and sugar in the mouth, and acids form as byproducts. The acids eat through tooth enamel and encourage decay.
2. Dental Visits: Patients should visit their Orleans dentist†at least twice a year, according to the Canadian Dentistry Association. Many Trillium Dental patients schedule visits every quarter. Regular visits keep dentists aware of oral health threats, such as decay, periodontal disease and oral cancer. Regular cleanings keep plaque and dental calculus at bay and reduce the risks of periodontal disease. Patients can discuss desired cosmetic procedures at regular visits, such as dental veneers or teeth whitening in Ottawa.
3. Missing and Misaligned Teeth: Many patients believe their missing and misaligned teeth only cause aesthetic issues, but they actually affect oral health. Missing teeth can disrupt a patientís jaw function, and other teeth can shift into the newly emptied space. Patients with missing teeth can also suffer bone loss in the jaw. Dental implants will bond to the jaw, preventing bone loss. The restored tooth will enjoy normal functions also. On the alignment front, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen†help patients enjoy the perks of alignment without jeopardizing their oral health routines. Patients can remove the aligners to brush and floss normally.
Straight teeth are easier to keep clean than crooked teeth; therefore aligned teeth are healthier and more attractive than crooked teeth. Patients can also enjoy a self-esteem boost from their newly straightened smile.
The experienced staff at Trillium Dental offers comprehensive dental care in each of its six offices across greater Ottawa. Doctors treat patients through cutting-edge technology in a modern, comfortable setting.
