New Year: The Dental Connection!

Now that another year is in full swing, 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!  Of course, this includes brushing and flossing on a regular basis, waiting about twenty minutes and then brushing after consuming foods that can stain your teeth and finally, visiting our office every six months or as recommended.

The American Dental Association also recommends the following for ideal oral hygiene:
  • Brush two minutes twice daily with an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months.
  • Clean between your teeth with floss in areas where bristles don't reach.
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks.
  • Visit our office on a regular basis for professional cleanings and exams.

Lastly, a great reason to smile is this: recent studies have shown that smiling can actually help you live longer!  If you need an appointment, call our office at 918-455-0123!

God Bless,
