Celebrate Mardi Gras with a Smile

Mardi Gras comes early this year, so celebrate Fat Tuesday by indulging in your favorite fatty foods… then make sure you brush your teeth!

Once all the reveling and King Cake eating has subsided, it’s time to take stock of your oral health. Are you always downing sticky drinks and caffeinated beverages and dark wines? Do you eat a ton of sweets and not many fruits and veggies?

Good health begins in your mouth, where nourishment enters your system. It’s the gateway to the rest of your body.

Unfortunately, for people who are experiencing oral health problems – loose or painful teeth, missing teeth, uncomfortable dentures, a worn out smile, and so on – they are more likely to eat poorly, which just exacerbates the problems. There are gaps in their diet because they don’t feel comfortable or safe eating crunchy foods so they stick to the softer fare. And soups and pasta alone just don’t equal a healthy diet.

We can help restore your smile to its natural, healthy state with a smile makeover. You’ll look and feel so good about your grin that you will want to feed your body the right way – and you won’t feel the least bit nervous about what might happen to your teeth in the process.
