We all want to have a beautiful smile but in order to have a beautiful smile, it’s important to have healthy teeth. If your teeth aren’t healthy then having a beautiful smile might be a challenge but that’s when Papasikos Orthodontics comes to save the day! A beautiful smile starts with proper orthodontic care right here in Bloomfied, NJ. Here is a list of some of the steps you can take in your personal life to make sure that your smile will be a  healthy and beautiful one!

Healthy teeth and smiles bring confidence.

Step 1 – One of the most important things you can do for your teeth is to brush and floss them daily. By brushing and flossing daily, not only are you helping keep your teeth stay clean and healthy but you’re ensuring that your smile looks beautiful with the help of your healthy, clean teeth. If you want to know the proper way to brush and floss so that your teeth are getting cleaned, speak with a team member so we can assist you.

Step 2 – Another factor in creating a beautiful, healthy smile is to make sure that your teeth stay white. As you probably already know, teeth stains can be caused by certain beverages such as coffee, tea, and wine. Sometimes stains can even be caused by an infection in the tooth or an injury that made you fall and hit your tooth.

Step 3 – What does your diet consist of? Are you eating healthy fruits and vegetables and getting the proper nutrients? It’s important that you watch what you’re eating so that you can maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. By eating healthy you protect your body including your teeth from health issues.

Step 4 – Sometimes in order for us to have a beautiful, perfect smile, a proper bite and well-aligned teeth are needed to help improve the appearance. If you feel like this sounds like something you need to be done, speak with your dentist so they can refer you to either Dr. Papasikos or a cosmetic dentist depending on your specific needs. With the help of orthodontic treatment and/or cosmetic dentistry, different procedures can take place such as teeth whitening or getting your teeth straightened. Sometimes getting procedures done can be beneficial for you especially in the long run.

Step 5 – Lastly, another important factor in maintaining a beautiful smile is making sure that you have a good, healthy fresh breath. If you do your part by brushing and flossing your teeth then you shouldn’t worry too much about forming bad breath. Another sure way to avoid bad breath is to invest in a tongue scraper and a mouth rinse in addition to brushing and flossing. If you’re still having problems with bad breath, speak with Drs. Jacy and Arianna Papasikos so they can help you solve the problem.

Hopefully, if you do your part in following these simple steps listed above then you should be able to have that perfect, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted!
