What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and steamed vegetables? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging trail? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are looking good? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental x-ray showing no cavities, we salute you.
At La Costa Dental Excellence, we urge 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 protect 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 necessary 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.
We’re Drs. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth of La Costa Dental Excellence. We’re committed to helping each of our patients benefit from oral health and avoid dental problems that can compromise their all-around health.
And just as some healthcare providers furnish cosmetic procedures, we also offer services that improve the esthetics of your smile. Ask us about porcelain veneers, dental implants, invisible braces, white fillings, inlays/onlays and same-day teeth whitening.
