2014 New Year Tips: The Dental Connection!

As we begin another year, we at Thomas Family Dentistry thought that we would like to remind our patients to practice good oral hygiene to keep your smile looking its best throughout the year of 2014!  Of course, this includes brushing and flossing on a regular basis, brushing after consuming foods that can stain your teeth and visiting our office every six months or as recommended.

The American Dental Association also recommends the following for ideal oral health:

  • Brush two minutes twice daily.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three to four months.
  • Floss daily to clean between your teeth where the toothbrush cannot reach.
  • Eat a well balanced diet.
  • Limit between-meal snacks.
  • Maintain regular professional cleanings and exams.

Finally, another great reason to smile comes from a recent study that has shown that smiling can actually cause you to live longer!  If you are in need of an appointment or have a dental question or concern, call our office at 918-455-0123!

God Bless,
