Even if you value a healthy smile, it’s easy to become lax about smile-friendly lifestyle choices. At The Richardson Dentist, our goal is for you to scrutinize your oral health and examine whether you could step it up a notch. The following best practices can prevent future problems and support your quality of life.

Brushing
Good: Brush teeth once a day.
Better: Brush teeth properly after each meal.
Best: Brush after each meal and floss correctly before bed.

Dental Checkups
Good: See us if you get a toothache.
Better: See us once a year even if you don’t notice any dental problems.
Best: Twice-yearly, have an extensive dental exam and professional dental cleaning at The Richardson Dentist.

A White Smile
Good: Use a whitening toothpaste.
Better: Use an over-the-counter whitening product at home.
Best: Schedule an in-office teeth whitening treatment.

Missing Tooth
Good enough for some people: Ignore it. (We don’t recommend this.)
Better: Get a quality dental bridge.
Best: Restore your smile with a secure and natural-functioning dental implant.

Smile-Friendly Nutrition
Good: Eat a nutritious diet.
Better: Eat a healthy diet and limit sugary snacks and beverages.
Best: Eat a nutritious diet, limit between-meal snacking, eat lots of calcium-rich foods, minimize sugar-filled foods, abstain from energy drinks and soda, and sip water throughout the day to keep acid at bay.

For Young Smiles
Good: Never put your child to bed with a bottle. When your toddler starts drinking from sippy-cup, don’t let them sip juice or milk all day.
Better: Follow the previous advice and schedule his/her first dental checkup before the first birthday.
Best: In addition, talk to us about dental sealants when your child is young. When your little athlete starts participating in sports, make sure he/she wears a protective mouthguard. Set a good example of daily dental hygiene and healthy lifestyle choices.
