What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and carrot sticks? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging pathway? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental X-ray showing no decay, we salute you.
At Alaska Premier Dental Group, we encourage everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.”
When done correctly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an essential component of everyday oral hygiene.
- Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush to protect your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and make sure you reach all the surfaces.
- Flossing should be done once a day and is necessary for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot.
Also, you should visit your family dentist twice a year. At Alaska Premier Dental Group, we believe that your oral health directly impacts your overall health and happiness. That is why we are committed to providing excellent dental care to every one of our patients and their loved ones.
The healthcare team at Alaska Premier Dental Group are committed to helping all of our patients enjoy oral health and avoid tooth problems that can compromise their overall health.
