Good Dental Health in 10 Steps

Posted on January 14th, 2015 by

If you hear the words “dental care,” you may think of dentist office, fillings, sealants, braces and so forth. Yet that is not the whole story. Good dental health actually begins with you. It begins as you create a regular oral hygiene schedule that includes proper brushing twice a day and proper flossing once a day.
The actions you take are home are significantly critical for your dental health. Visiting your dental offices in Lakeview every 6 months is also essential to protect your teeth from decay and periodontal disease. With professional help, common dental issues can be prevented from leading to a host of bigger more serious health issues like diabetes, stroke and heart disease.
Here are ten tips to follow to keep you on track for good dental health.

  1. Brush your teeth two times each day
  2. Brush with a fluoride toothpaste
  3. Floss your teeth at least once each day
  4. Rinse your mouth using a fluoride mouthwash
  5. Avoid smoking and tobacco products
  6. Limit your intake of alcoholic beverages
  7. Eat healthy foods and sugar-free snacks
  8. Wear a mouth-guard if playing any kind of contact sport
  9. Switch out your toothbrush every three months
  10. Visit your dentist regularly, two times a year or more

Sometimes maintaining you teeth can feel redundant, but don’t take chances with your oral health. It cannot be overstated how important the quality level of your dental care should be. If you feel that you don’t have time to floss every day, or that brushing after your meal is bothersome, reconsider. It takes dedication and effort to keep your gums and teeth healthy, but the payoff of years of good dental health is so well worth it.
After all, you deserve the best!

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
