Summer sun brings summer fun. While warm months are perfect for spending time together, summer vacation can also throw off your usual dental routine.
At Anacapa Dental Art Institute, we understand how valuable your time is. Many family dentists take extra time off during the summer, making it difficult to schedule the dental visits your family needs. The dedicated team at Anacapa Dental, however, is there for you all summer long, and we are ready to help you make the most of the extra time your children have in the summer by taking care of their oral health.
Here are three ways to prevent summertime tooth decay:
What Are the Best Dental Procedures to Get Done in the Summer?
Beautiful white teeth lead to confident smiles. If you can’t remember the last time you or your children smiled with confidence, maybe it’s time to visit your Oxnard near Camarillo dentist and see how they can help. Summer is an ideal time to focus on your family’s oral health by considering the following dental procedure options:
#1 Teeth Whitening:
Teeth cleaning in Oxnard is fast and convenient Regularly visiting Anacapa Dental for teeth cleaning will have several health benefits, most of which are preventative in nature. Removing the sticky plaque that slowly and stealthily builds up on teeth is a proven way of preserving your teeth and is a vital link to maintaining good health.
#2 Crowns, Veneers, and Bridges:
At Anacapa Dental, we pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with the latest technology that can improve the look and feel of your teeth. If you have gaps in your teeth, if you are missing teeth, or if you have unevenly shaped teeth, you may want to consider same-day crowns, veneers, or bridges. Our dental team is ready to answer any questions you may have about these innovative procedures that can vastly improve the look of your smile.
Invisalign has the added benefits of being easier on your gums and cheeks than braces can be. As there is no sharp metal protruding inside your mouth, the chances of getting cut are drastically less as reported by his Ventura Invisalign patients. The level of comfort in comparison with braces is similar to comparing a night of sleep on your mattress to sleeping on a bed of nails.
What Is Preventative Dental Care?
Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.
There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and dental cleanings. To maintain optimal oral health, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visits to the dentist at regular intervals determined by a dentist. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white. Children should be taught proper oral hygiene at an early age.
#1 Twice-Daily Brushing:
Brushing your teeth in the morning and right before bed is a simple way to protect against tooth decay. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that people brush twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride-based toothpaste.
The ADA also recommends daily flossing, or interdental cleaning, at least once a day. Using dental floss or other interdental cleaners helps remove plaque from places on your teeth that your toothbrush cannot reach. By not removing the plaque on your teeth, you risk developing gingivitis and cavities. You also lose the natural white brilliance of your teeth when you allow plaque to build up.
#3 Regular Dental Checkups:
Visiting your dentist twice a year provides your teeth with the cavity assessment, deep cleaning, and fluoride treatment that they need to stay healthy and strong.
#4 Cutting Down on Sugar:
In an effort to educate your children about the negative effects of sugar on oral health. Summer is a perfect time to remind your children about the importance of a healthy diet and we find that this is a fun way to warn them of the problems that too much sugar can cause.
