While everyone is spending October preparing for Halloween and other fall festivities, at Smile Dental Clinics, we are busy celebrating National Dental Hygiene Month. This holiday serves as a reminder to practice daily oral hygiene habits that promote optimal oral health. It is also a perfect opportunity to honor those who help keep clean and care for your teeth — dental hygienists. We want to take some time during the week of October 18-22 to celebrate the amazing work our dental hygienists do.

Are you always looking for ways to brighten your smile? Have you tried numerous over-the-counter teeth whitening products and are left with less than stellar results? Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments. Bright white teeth can give the face a younger appearance and make you feel instantly better about your smile. It can be easy to give into temptation and head to your nearest store to purchase one of the many over-the-counter whitening products available. We encourage you to leave those products on the shelves and call our office instead.
Did we recommend a treatment during your last hygiene examination and you have hesitated to schedule the appointment? We know that schedules are busy and it isn’t hard for time to get away from you. It happens to us too, but we want to encourage you to keep the future of your oral health in mind and schedule your appointment today. Delaying treatment, even if it is a minor procedure, can result in the need for additional treatments and added costs down the road. Read on to learn more about why needed dental treatments should not be ignored.
Do you suffer from repeated dental decay that resulted in numerous dental treatments? At Smile Dental Clinics, we do everything we can to save your natural teeth. We may recommend a filling or root canal to save a tooth. Once all options have been exhausted, the decay has spread too deeply under the gumline, severe gum disease is present, or an infection cannot be healed we might recommend a tooth extraction. A tooth extraction is the process of removing the entire tooth and tooth root.
Have you recently experienced discomfort in your mouth and are unsure of the cause? Or maybe you had a dental emergency and were stunned to learn the cause of the damage.

We wanted to take a moment and share some bad habits that you may not realize are affecting your teeth. Continue reading to see if you are guilty of any of these bad habits.
We recommend that our patients visit our office at least twice a year for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning. During these appointments, we not only thoroughly clean and polish the teeth, but we also inspect all parts of the mouth for other diseases. One disease that we check for is gum disease, which affects more than half of American adults. Gum disease is a serious infection in the gums that is caused by bacterial growth along the gumline and around the base of the tooth.
