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? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are looking good? If you picture a white, healthy smile or a dental X-ray showing no tooth decay, we salute you.
At Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry, we encourage everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.”
When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are crucial components of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush to shield your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and make certain you reach all the surfaces.
Flossing should be done once a day and is necessary for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Royal Oak stores, so experiment until finding one you like.
I’m Dr. Steven Gustafson of Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry. As a healthcare provider, I am passionate about helping each of my patients benefit from oral health and avoid tooth and gum problems that can compromise their all-around health.
And just as some healthcare providers offer cosmetic procedures, I also offer services that improve the aesthetics of your smile. Ask us about porcelain veneers, dental implants, invisible braces, white fillings, inlays/onlays, and same-day teeth whitening.
