How to Keep the Smile You Love

Posted .

Did you know that beyond basic oral hygiene, there are things that you should be doing to preserve the health of your smile? Dr. Blaine Cusack and our team are happy to offer advice on things you can do for your smile.

Visit Our Dentist
For the health of your smile, visit our dental office at least twice a year for your regular dental cleaning and exam. During this visit, our hygienist will remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. Tartar can only be removed by a dental professional. During this appointment, our dentist will examine all of your teeth and your gums for any issues and potential issues. Dental X-rays may be taken as well. This exam allows for any dental problems to be treated early on.

Complete Your Dental Treatment
We stress the importance of completing your recommended dental treatment. Putting off things like dental fillings allows the decay to spread and become worse. This could eventually lead to infected dental pulp, which would require a more invasive treatment to repair. Any procrastinated dental work could mean a worse dental issue developing.

We welcome you to contact our office at 708-482-0300 today to learn more about keeping your smile for life and to schedule a visit with our dentist in Countryside, Illinois.
