What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and a tossed salad? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging trail? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are in top shape? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental X-ray showing no decay, we salute you.
At La Costa Dental Excellence, we encourage everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.”
When done correctly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an essential component of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush to safeguard your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and make sure you reach all the surfaces.
Flossing should be done once a day and is required for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Carlsbad stores, so experiment until find one you like.
I’m Doctor Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth of La Costa Dental Excellence. As a healthcare provider, I am passionate about helping each of my patients benefit from oral health and avoid dental problems that can compromise their all-around health.
And just as some healthcare providers serve you with cosmetic procedures, I also serve you with services that improve the aesthetics of your smile. Ask us about porcelain veneers, dental implants, invisible braces, white fillings, inlays/onlays and same-day teeth whitening.
