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 path? 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 tooth decay, the dentists at Gastonia Dental Group salute you.
At Gastonia Dental Group, we encourage everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.”
When done thoroughly and consistently, brushing and flossing are a vital component of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush to guard your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and be sure 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 Gastonia stores, so experiment until find one you like.
Gastonia Dental Group provides general and cosmetic dentistry. We have a team of in-house specialists who are capable to addressing any dental issue. Schedule an appointment today.
