Pearly Whites!

Obeng Family Dental

Want to know the best way to improve your good looks? I’ll give you a clue, it involves your teeth. If you guessed smiling, then congratulations, you got it right! Smiling is the easiest way to become more attractive. Studies show that smiling increases your facial attractiveness and improves positive social characteristics like trustworthiness. Your smile’s aesthetics are affected by the position of your lips, personality traits, and even smile exercises! But the most significant influencer on your beauty is your oral health. Oral health helps you look great and feel great. By practicing excellent oral hygiene, you support your overall health. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Brush twice a day (with a soft-bristled toothbrush).
  • Floss daily.
  • If you wear dentures (full or partial), clean them daily.
  • If you wear dentures, remove them from your mouth for a minimum of four hours every night.
  • Buy toothpaste with fluoride or use tap water (has fluoride) to brush. This will help strengthen your teeth against cavities.
  • Please do not smoke. It increases your risk of oral cancer, tooth decay/loss, and gum disease.

Last but not least, visit a dentist. By regularly visiting your dentist, you can avoid many common oral diseases associated with aging.
