Nothing is more important than having a healthy smile.

A beautiful smile is truly lovely to look at and admire. Plus, it certainly doesn’t hurt when our Tampa, FL family dentist, Dr. Robert Perez, family dentistrygives you or your child a clean, cavity-free bill of health during a routine checkup. While keeping your family’s smiles healthy should be easy, here are some helpful pieces of advice for how to make sure that everyone in your family is maintaining their ideal smiles.

Make Your Dental Routine a Family Affair

One of the easiest ways to make sure that everyone in the family is keeping their smiles clean and healthy is by brushing and flossing each and every day. By making sure that your family gets together to brush their teeth in the morning and the evening you're protecting your and your children’s smiles from decay and gum disease.

Don’t Skimp Out on Routine Checkups

Did you know that visiting our Tampa general dentist is a necessary component to good oral health? You wouldn’t believe how many people think that they don’t have to come in for routine visits, especially if their teeth and gums seem healthy. Unfortunately, there are many issues that can arise that don’t even show symptoms, so the only way you’ll actually know there is an issue is if we examine your smile. Coming in every six months for cleanings could prevent the need for invasive and expensive treatments in the future.

Consider Preventive Measures

Besides brushing and flossing daily, you may want to talk to us about whether your child could benefit from fluoride treatments, dental sealants or orthodontic treatment. Fluoride is an essential nutrient that helps keep enamel strong, and while most drinking water contains enough fluoride, sometimes children still require additional fluoride treatment.

Dental sealants are also designed to seal out bacteria and food from getting into the nook and crannies of your child’s molars, which are most susceptible to decay. By getting sealants we can help reduce your child’s chances of developing cavities.

If you need to schedule a dental cleaning for yourself or someone in your family, or if you ever have questions about oral health, don’t hesitate to contact Impressive Smiles Tampa in Tampa, FL. We want you and your family to have picture-perfect oral health for years to come.
