Four secrets to help you have a healthier smile

April 30, 2022 | Dental

Have you ever admired someone’s beautifully white healthy smile? Perhaps you’d like to improve your oral health but aren’t sure where to start? We’ve listed a few easy points to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.

1. A whiter smile isn’t always healthier

Bright white teeth can look healthy, but you can easily over-bleach your teeth, potentially damaging them for life. If you want to whiten your teeth safely, please discuss this with us during your next check-up here at Coffs Coast Dental + Facial.

2. Nothing replaces flossing

Using a toothpick after meals isn’t the same as dental floss as a toothpick cannot reach underneath the gums where bacteria build up. Flossing your teeth once a day reduces your chances of plaque buildup, helping you to maintain strong, healthy gums and protecting your oral and overall health.

3. Don’t ignore dental problems

A nagging toothache or mouth pain should never be ignored, so book an appointment to come and see us as soon as you can. Waiting allows any problems to worsen, so treatment is potentially longer and more invasive and more costly.

4. Visit us regularly

Regular dental visits are the easiest way to maintain a healthy smile and will help you to avoid dental problems. In the longer term, it’s an approach that saves you time and money, and you’ll have the confidence of knowing your smile always looks its best.
