When Something’s Gotta Give, Don’t Let It Be Your Smile

general and cosmetic dentistry Cornwall

Life is hectic. That’s just the way it is. Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day, and important things get put on the back burner. But the team at Cornwall Dental Arts urges you to protect your beautiful smile, and not to become complacent about dental care.

Here are some prevalent dental care shortcuts. Are you guilty of any of them?

Rushing Through Brushing
Your teeth deserve an attentive two minutes or more. Slow and methodical beats quick and dirty. Use a systematic approach to make sure you get every tooth. Playing one of your favorite two- or three-minute songs may help you go the distance.

Only Seeing Your Dentist When You Have a Toothache
We hope none of our patients put off checkups and cleanings. When you feel tooth pain, it may be way too late to prevent a filling or even a root canal.

Neglecting Professional Cleanings
When softer plaque turns to calculus, you can’t brush it off with a toothbrush. Six-month cleanings help get rid of the calculus or tartar before it can impair your enamel or irritate your gums.

Using Floss Picks Instead of Dental Floss
While it’s better to use a floss pick than to not floss at all, it’s important to know that floss picks can only clean a part of the tooth’s surface. A floss pick holds just a small length of floss stretched in a straight line. Looking down, a tooth is shaped somewhat round or oval. A straight piece of floss just doesn’t make sense geometrically because it doesn’t conform to the shape of the tooth as well as traditional floss. When you wrap a string of floss completely around the circumference of a tooth, you can more thoroughly clean that essential area around and just below the gumline. We have seen patients who are faithful floss pick users who developed decay in a very small crack the floss pick missed day after day.

At Cornwall Dental Arts, we urge our patients to practice preventative dentistry to guard their beautiful smiles for life. We deliver the full spectrum of general and family dentistry. Ask us about smile makeovers! Schedule an appointment with us today.
