Healthy Living Starts With A Smile
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 in top shape? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental x-ray showing no tooth decay, we salute you.
At The Dental Design Center – Ira J. Handschuh, D.D.S., 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 an integral component of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft bristled toothbrush to safeguard 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 needed for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at White Plains stores, so experiment until find one you like.
