Spring Cleaning for Your Teeth

The daylight hours are getting longer and the weather is beginning to get warmer. Spring is finally on its way, and for many people, that means it is time to start spring cleaning! The dusting and organizing may get tiring after awhile, which is all the more reason for you to take an hour or two out of your day to focus on a different type of spring cleaning – for your teeth!

Between holiday fever and the cold winter weather, it is easy to fall out of good healthcare habits. Spring is the perfect time to start a new resolution to take better care of yourself, especially when it comes to your oral hygiene. The oral healthcare professionals at our Staten Island dentist office know just how important a healthy smile is and will set you up with an appointment for a teeth cleaning. We are backed by an exceptional team of trained specialists with one goal in mind: giving you a brighter, stronger, and healthier smile.

Visiting your Staten Island dentist at Oakwood regularly is the best way to avoid gum disease and care for your overall health and well-being. Good oral hygiene is hugely important because gum disease is usually an early warning sign of health problems somewhere else in the body. Allowing the professionals here at Oakwood Dental Arts to clean your teeth is the only way to effectively remove all the plaque and tartar buildup that brushing and flossing alone cannot remove. We will do a thorough and careful examination so that if there is a small problem we can catch it early and treat it. As the saying goes, “If you do not clean out the entire closet, you never see what is behind all the junk.”

Instead of cleaning out your closet, this time around, try starting with your teeth. Considering the condition of your teeth and gums connect to your overall health, you cannot afford to just ignore them. At Oakwood Dental Arts in Staten Island, we see spring as the perfect opportunity to give your teeth the great cleaning they deserve so that your smile can be ready for the warmer weather. Creating better habits, tossing out your old toothbrush, and even getting your teeth whitened are great ways to give you that perfect smile you desire. We are dedicated to doing our best for you and treating you not simply as a patient, but as part of the family!
