Open Wide! October is National Dental Hygiene Month

How often do you brush? Floss? Get a teeth cleaning? The condition of your gums and teeth affects how involved your smile makeover will be.

October is National Dental Hygiene Month. We will have an easier time creating your new grin if your oral health is in tip-top shape, plus it will be a less time-consuming process for you.

You need a good foundation to build something upon it – that truth applies to your oral health as well. The presence of decay and gum disease doesn’t do you any favors before you embark upon a smile makeover. Plus, poor oral care can lead to illnesses like heart disease and diabetes. Your good health begins in your mouth, where everything enters your body.

But even if your gums and bones have fallen into great disrepair, we can help you at Smile Texas. We will do a major clean-up so that the surface we’re working with is robust and healthy. Keep in mind too that we offer sedation dentistry which allows us to perform multiple dental procedures in one visit – we can clean up gum disease, extract teeth, place dental implants, do root canals, place porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns, and more.

For your own good, keep up with your dental hygiene. Take a few minutes to put in the effort each day and make two dental visits a year for regular cleanings. You can help prevent the need for full-mouth restoration, and you’ll be that much closer to the smile makeover you want if you take care of your oral health. And if you’ve been told that nothing can be done about your smile, don’t lose hope – we can help.
