This message from The Dental Design Center in White Plains is for anyone who is finding it difficult to improve their dental health. We urge you to keep working at it and assure you that we’re here to help!

Keep Trying To Floss

Many people are really good about brushing their teeth, but sometimes skip flossing. This is a bad idea. Flossing is the only way to clean food debris and plaque from between teeth.

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 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. Keep trying!

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!

Keep Getting Checkups

Regular cleanings and checkups are a critical part of maintaining good dental health. Along with brushing and flossing, they are part of your first line of defense against tooth decay. On average, we recommend a checkup every six months. Some patients can spread them out a little more, and others may need more frequent visits.

Remember, the link between your dental health and overall health is well-established. Patients come to The Dental Design Center in White Plains from Scarsdale, Westchester County, and New Castle for general and cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Schedule your next checkup today!
