Did you know that your smile can tell a lot about you? Not only is it an indication of your mood at the moment, it can give dentists a clue to your overall health. Poor oral hygiene can lead to such complications as oral and facial pain, gum disease and a variety of mouth infections that can affect major organs of the body.
That’s why practicing good oral hygiene and seeing a dentist regularly is so important for people of all ages. The state-of-the-art practice of Imagine Smile Design and our skilled professionals are dedicated to keeping your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.
Brush twice a day: Brush for at least two minutes, using fluoridated toothpaste.
Floss daily: It removes plaque from places your toothbrush can't reach.
Replace your toothbrush: Do this every three months or when it appears warn.
Visit the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams. This is one of the most effective ways to detect the early signs of gum disease.
Limit soda, coffee and alcohol: Excess amounts can cause tooth decay.
Drink milk: Milk contains calcium, which strengthens teeth and builds stronger enamel.
Some carbs are okay: Despite their popularity, low-carb diets can cause bad breath. A balanced, dental-healthy diet can help reduce tooth decay.
Take a daily dose of vitamins C and D: These vitamins help support the absorption of healthy mouth minerals such as calcium and phosphorous, which support the bone and gum tissue, keeping it healthy. This is an easy way to maintain dental hygiene and fight gum disease.
Avoid cigarettes and smokeless tobacco: These are known to contribute to gum disease and oral cancer.
At the office of Imagine Smile Design, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on the many other dental services we provide, give us a call today.

Dr. Geen is a very talented dentist who takes pride in her work. I am so happy we have finally found a NYC dentist we like
I am so impressed with your kindness, hospitality and talent. The world would be a better place if all doctors were this way. I have waited 35 years to fix my teeth. Words cannot express how happy I am with renewed confidence to SMILE! Thank you
Sparkling clean office with all the latest technology bells and whistles. Very nice and knowledgeable staff. Added bonus: they have a great lip balm (not Vaseline) to protect lips during any work or cleaning.
