What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and steamed vegetables? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging pathway? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are doing great? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental x-ray showing no cavities, we salute you.
At The Reno 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 an essential component of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft bristled toothbrush to guard your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and be certain 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 Reno stores, so experiment until find one you like.
I’m Dr. Shane Sykes of The Reno Dentist. As a healthcare provider, I am passionate about helping each of my patients reap the benefits of oral health and avoid dental problems that can compromise their all-around health.
And just as some healthcare providers deliver cosmetic procedures, I also deliver services that improve the esthetics of your smile. Ask us about porcelain veneers, dental implants, invisible braces, white fillings, inlays/onlays and same-day teeth whitening.
