When Something’s Gotta Give, Don’t Let It Be Your Smile

general and cosmetic dentistry Bloomington

Life gets busy for all of us, and at times there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Maybe you’ve been putting off fixing a leaky faucet for as long as you can remember. Lots of things get put on the back burner, but at Create A Smile in Bloomington IN, we urge you not to let your dental care be on of them!

Here are some common dental care shortcuts. Do any of them sound familiar?

Rushing Through Brushing

Your teeth deserve att least two minutes of brushing. Slow and methodical beats quick and dirty. Use a process to make sure you get every tooth. Playing one of your favorite two- or three-minute songs may help you go the distance.

Only Seeing The Dentist When You Have a Toothache

We hope none of our patients put off evaluations and cleanings. When you feel tooth pain, it may already be a cavity.

Neglecting Professional Cleanings

When softer plaque turns to tartar, you can’t clean it away with a toothbrush. Six-month cleanings help get rid of it before it can impair your enamel or irritate your gums.

Using Floss Picks Instead of Dental Floss

While it’s better to use a floss pick than to not floss at all, it’s important to know that they can only clean a part of the tooth’s surface. Ordinary string floss is by far the most effective way to floss your teeth.

At Create A Smile in Bloomington IN, we want all our patients to have good dental health. People from Spencer, Ellettsville, and Bedford 1come to our office for dental implants, complete general dentistry, and much more. Call us to schedule your next checkup today!
