Better Oral Health Leads to Brighter Smiles During National Dental Hygiene Month

 

 

 

October is National Dental Hygiene Month, a time to raise awareness of the benefits of a healthy beautiful smile.

Cosmetic dentistry not only provides patients with the smile of their dreams through popular procedures like whitening and veneers, but today's cosmetic dental practice also plays a vital role in maintaining a patient's oral health and detecting early warning signs of potentially serious dental health problems.

"Cosmetic dental practices provide patients with much more than smile makeovers," said Dr. Jennifer N. Nguyen of Lake Mary, Florida.

Before prescribing any elective cosmetic treatment, a cosmetic dental team is responsible for detecting oral cancer, gum disease, tooth decay, jaw joint (TMJ) problems and many other problems related to the mouth, face and jaw.

According to the National Cancer Institute, this year, more than 30,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer and more than 8,000 will die from it, making it more common than leukemia and Hodgkin's disease. Up to 90 percent of oral cancers are treatable if detected early, which emphasizes the importance of visiting a dentist regularly.

Recommendations for maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile include:

  • Follow proper oral health care, including brushing and flossing twice daily.
  • Visit a dentist every three to six months or as scheduled.
  • Avoid hazardous chemicals from smoking and tobacco.
  • After receiving proper check-ups from your dentist, proceed with a dentist-prescribed whitening treatment to brighten your smile.
