What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and carrot sticks? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging trail? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are in top shape? If you picture a white, healthy smile or a dental X-ray showing no tooth decay, we salute you.
At The Parkway Dentist, we encourage everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.”
When done correctly and consistently, brushing and flossing are integral components of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush to protect your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes, and be sure you reach all the surfaces.
Flossing should be done once a day and is needed for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Fort Worth stores, so experiment until finding one you like.
I’m Dr. Justin Cook of The Parkway Dentist. As a healthcare provider, I am devoted to helping each of my patients reap the benefits of oral health and avoid dental distresses that can compromise their all-around health.
And just as some healthcare providers serve you with cosmetic procedures, I also offer services that improve the aesthetics of your smile. Ask us about porcelain veneers, dental implants, invisible braces, white fillings, inlays/onlays and same-day teeth whitening.
