Let’s Start the New Year with a Plan!
Created on December 30, 2016
When you think about making New Year’s resolutions, what comes to mind? Health and wellness? Greater professional success? Maybe you’d like to feel better about your appearance. Whatever the actual goal, the point behind making resolutions is to set the stage for plan-making. Without a plan, keeping those New Year’s resolutions becomes all but impossible. Here, we will point out the various ways that patients of Taylor Street Dental can make the most of their quest for better health and beauty.
The basis of a healthy smile is brushing and flossing. There is also the matter of what we eat and drink. Some foods build strong teeth and gums, like crunchy fruits and vegetables. Some degrade just about everything in the mouth, such as soda and tobacco. The thing about taking care of your teeth is that you need a team. You need a dentist and hygienist that you know and trust. That’s where we come in. We schedule routine visits with our patients at intervals that let us monitor their teeth and gums. Regular checkups and cleanings can show us areas that may be inadvertently neglected in home care. These visits also give us the chance to remove plaque and tartar that may be threatening optimal oral health.
The treatments that you need when you make dental care a priority will depend on the state of your teeth and gums at the time of your visit. Ideally, we can start from a place of health. This means no repairs are needed; just a good cleaning and education for home hygiene. Sometimes, the starting point is one in which a tooth or teeth need to be restored. Our experienced team has completed training in all aspects of restorative dentistry, including laser gum treatments, dentures, implants, and more. At the heart of our practice is a commitment to patient comfort and satisfaction.
Your best smile starts with healthy teeth and gums. We can expand on this as needed with precision cosmetic dentistry treatments like teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. To discuss your dental goals and learn about our services, call our Springfield office at (413) 781-7645.
