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 pathway? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are doing great? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental x-ray showing no cavities, we salute you.
At Gordon West DDS – Aesthetic & General Dentistry, 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 integral 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 certain you reach all the surfaces.
Flossing should be done once a day and is needed for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Lafayette stores, so experiment until find one you like.
I’m Dr. Gordon West of Gordon West DDS – Aesthetic & General Dentistry. As a healthcare provider, I am committed to helping each of my patients enjoy oral health and avoid tooth and gum problems that can compromise their all-around health.
