There are many different medical facets that make up your overall health. When taking a look at your healthy lifestyle, it’s important to remember that a healthier mouth means a healthier you! This is why we’re proud to celebrate “Save Your Tooth Month” every May. This awareness month was set up by the American Association of Endodontics (AAE) to “emphasize the need for patients to get back on track with their oral health and see a specialist when there is tooth pain” (Dentistry Today.) You only get one set of adult teeth in life so it’s important that you take care of them the best you can!
Saving Natural Teeth
The best way you can save and care for your natural teeth is by implementing routine care:
- Bi-annual dentist visits
- Daily brushing – twice a day
- Daily flossing
- Monitor any pain or discomfort
Paying attention to these key items can help increase the strength of your teeth for the years to come. If you start to feel discomfort or pain in your teeth, even if you think it’s just mild, it’s important to call your dentist to schedule a visit sooner rather than later to ensure there aren’t larger issues occurring.
