We love to see those beautiful, healthy smiles. But sometimes it’s hard to keep them that way. Here is some advice from your Meridian family dentistry to you to keep those pearly whites sparkling.

  1. Dental Health Affects Your Body

    The condition of your mouth can tell a lot about you. Having healthy teeth and gums are actually associated with having a healthy cardiovascular system. Keep that mouth clean!

  2. Regular Dental Care Will Keep Your Mouth Healthy

    Regular checkups and cleanings will help keep your mouth healthy and will help alert you and our dentist to any concerns that may be present.

  3. Teach Your Children How to Brush and Floss

    When children learn how to properly brush at a young age their mouth is healthier and they establish good habits early on which will lead to a lifetime of happy teeth.

  4. We Understand if You’re Anxious

    Our Meridian family dentistry understands your worry and fear of the dentist. We work hard to make sure your visit is as comfortable as possible. Our friendly dentist and staff will address any needs or concerns you may have, and can also provide sedation dentistry if needed.

  5. Dental X-Rays are Safe

    Our x-rays produce and incredibly low dose of radiation. They are completely safe. The risk of skipping x-rays is far more dangerous.

  6. Floss Every Day

    Removing plaque and food particles at least once a day with floss is so important. Have you ever heard the saying “Floss only the teeth you want to keep”?

  7. Bleeding Gums can be a Cause for Concern

    Bleeding gums can be the first sign of gum disease. If this happens to you call your Meridian family dentist to learn about gum disease treatment.

  8. Some Chewing Gum Can Prevent Cavities

    Gum with xylitol has been proven to help prevent cavities. Chew some after and between meals!

  9. Say No to Soft Drinks

    Unfortunately your favorite soda pop is causing your teeth to weaken and it erodes tooth enamel. Try to avoid it as much as possible but if you have to give in rinse and brush afterward.

  10. Eat a Healthy Diet

    Whole grains and fruits and vegetables that are rich in fiber will keep your teeth healthy and strong. So fill up on those apples and broccoli.
