Family Dentistry Tips to Keep Your Smile Healthy


Family dentistry includes both preventative and restorative treatments. We want to prevent oral health problems for you and your family as well as correct any problems that may occur. When it comes to preventing oral health problems, there’s a lot that you can do to keep your smile healthy.

  1. See your dentist every six months: A checkup every six months can catch small problems before they turn into big ones. Routine cleanings can prevent many problems and keep your teeth and gums healthy. A great smile begins with a checkup every six months at Bassett Creek Dental.

  2. Don’t smoke! Smoking is expensive and wreaks havoc on your health. It is one of the leading causes of lung cancer and lung diseases, and contributes to many other types of cancer too, including oral cancer. Smokers are three to six times more likely to suffer from advanced gum disease than nonsmokers. If you currently smoke, please try to stop. If you don’t smoke, don’t start.

  3. Avoid sugar: Sugar contributes to tooth decay by ‘feeding’ the bacteria living inside your mouth. Save sugary treats for special occasions and enjoy a healthy diet filled with fruits, vegetables, lean protein and whole grains for maximum health benefits.

  4. Drink non carbonated beverages: Even something that seems as innocuous as sparkling water can contribute to tooth decay. The carbonation process adds acids to the water, which increases your teeth’s exposure to acids that can damage the enamel.

  5. Skip the oral piercings: Oral piercings may be in fashion, but they can become infected. They can also cause cracked and chipped teeth.

We hope that these family dentistry tips will keep your smile bright and your teeth and gums healthy for a long time. When you are ready to make an appointment, please call Bassett Creek Dental at 763-546-1301. It’s family dentistry as it was meant to be, and gives you more reasons to smile.
