At the office of Imagine Smile Design one of the many ways we establish trusting partnerships with our patients is to provide a wealth of information on maintaining optimal dental health and beautiful smiles. Whatever your age may be, there’s no secret formula for maintaining a healthy smile. It’s simply a matter of establishing an effective oral hygiene routine, getting routine checkups and care, eating a nutritious diet and avoiding harmful oral habits. Of course, the most important thing to remember is that to successfully keep your smile healthy, a consistent regimen of oral care is essential.
Enjoying the benefits of a vibrant smile in tip-top condition is not something to be taken for granted. To maintain optimal oral health requires a bit of effort.
Maintaining a healthy smile depends upon keeping your teeth and gums clean with a daily routine of brushing and flossing. According to the recommendations of the American Dental Association, it is important to brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Brushing your teeth with a fluoride containing toothpaste that has been awarded the ADA seal of acceptance helps to keep your smile healthy and vibrant. Moreover, to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, it is also essential to remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gumline on a daily basis. Simply by taking a few minutes to gently floss the teeth once a day, you can reduce your risk of dental disease.
At your routine checkup visit, a member of our team will demonstrate the proper technique for brushing and flossing your teeth as well as provide helpful dietary guidance. While sugary foods, as well as sweet and carbonated beverages, can be harmful to your oral health, other foods that are rich in nutrients help to keep your teeth and gums strong, and boost your resistance to dental disease.
At the office of Imagine Smile Design, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.

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.
