This message from Sundance Dental & Orthodontics in Rio Rancho and Farmington NM is for anyone who is having a hard time improving their dental health. We urge you to keep trying, and assure you that we’re eager to help!
Keep Trying To Floss
Many people are really good about brushing their teeth, but usually skip flossing. This is a bad idea. Flossing is the only way to clean food debris and plaque from between teeth with metal braces.
Failure to floss can lead to cavities, and even gum disease. Our recommendation? Brush twice a day, and floss before going to bed at night.
Keep Trying to Overcome Dental Anxiety
Skipping dental checkups due to anxiety, or even phobia, can have long-term, irreversible consequences. But millions of Americans cope with this condition, and their solution is doing just that: skipping the dentist.
For those whose instinct is to avoid the dentist at all costs: give sedation dentistry a try. We have two options: nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, and IV sedation for a deeper level of comfort. With IV sedation, you’ll need a ride to and from our office.
Keep Trying to Quit Tobacco
Smoking is as bad for your teeth and gums as it is for other parts of your body. If you’ve tried to quit but just can’t, you’re far from alone
According to the Centers for Disease Control, former smokers now outnumber active smokers. Everyone who has kicked the habit was once right where you are. Keep trying!
Remember, the link between your dental health and overall health is well-established. At Sundance Dental & Orthodontics in Rio Rancho and Farmington NM, we offer complete family dentistry, and sedation dentistry for those who need it. Please call our office to schedule a cleaning and checkup today!
