How to Get a Healthier Smile in Miami
How healthy is your smile? If your teeth are bothering you, you’re not alone. People of all ages in South Florida have dental problems at one time or another. Whether your smile issues are cosmetic – like stained, yellowed teeth, or functional – like a misaligned bite or crooked teeth, you can do something about it. Healthy teeth make a healthy smile. When your teeth are at their best, your smile will look great.
If you want to improve your dental health in Miami, there are a few things you can do. First, make sure that your teeth are clean and free of plaque buildup by following a good oral care routine. Maintain good dental hygiene by following the American Dental Association’s guidelines of:
- Brushing two time a day for two minutes at a time
- Using a fluoride toothpaste and dental products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance
- Flossing or cleaning between teeth once a day
- Seeing your dentist regularly for checkups, cleanings, and treatment
Following these guidelines can help you prevent staining, keep cavities from forming, and stop gum disease from developing in your mouth.
But keeping your teeth clean and gums healthy isn’t the only thing you can do for a healthy smile in Miami. If your teeth are misaligned, they can be causing you problems. Crooked or crowded teeth are not only less attractive than straight teeth, they can lead to tooth damage and even tooth loss. Overlapping teeth can be hard to keep entirely clean, and crowded teeth put pressure on surrounding teeth, which potentially damages them. Straightening your teeth with orthodontic treatment in Miami is one way to make sure your smile is healthy.
The ADA states that getting proper orthodontic treatment, such as braces, “can help improve your smile and make your teeth straighter” as well as contributing to greater dental health and improving your health overall. When braces are used to correct common bite and jaw issues, problems with chewing, headaches and facial pain, TMJ issues and more may be resolved. Customized braces are available to South Florida patients through Insignia Advanced Smile Design treatment at the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics.
Insignia treatment uses advanced dental software to develop customized orthodontic treatment for each patient of Dr. Yazji. Braces are custom made to fit the teeth and mouth of a patient, and to achieve precise, aesthetically-pleasing results. When you get Insignia Advanced Smile Design braces from Dr. Maria Yazji, you may be able to see results faster and get your braces off sooner than you would with traditional braces.
