It might be a little hard to believe right now, but warmer weather is on the horizon! Spring is the time of year where many of us focus on de-cluttering and beautifying. We’re going to guess that many of you are due for a spring cleaning!

No, we’re not talking about a Marie Kondo home tidying sesh… we’re talking about your mouth. All too often, we hear people ask us some version of this question: “I do a really good job of brushing and flossing on my own, so why do I need to visit the dentist for a cleaning every six months?” Well, there are a few reasons…

Is it Time for a Six-Month Checkup?

Even though brushing and flossing are SUPER important, unfortunately, it’s not enough to remove all of the plaque and tartar buildups that accumulate on the teeth. Dr. Brittany Dickinson and her team have special tools that help really get your teeth nice and clean, especially in places that are hard to reach on your own.

Many people also don’t realize that oral health is linked to physical health. For example, gum disease can lead to an increased risk of heart attacks and stroke. Yikes! Those six month checkups are absolutely vital to not only keep your smile looking and feeling fresh, but also to keep your health in tip-top shape.

You’re (Not) So Vain

We all want to look and feel our best. It’s not vain, it’s just human nature, and you deserve to love the way you look! Discolored teeth aren’t attractive, but the good news is it’s easy to fix. Whitening your teeth is an excellent non-invasive option to refresh and rejuvenate your smile. If you want a brighter, whiter smile for the spring, we offer three great options for teeth whitening at Sugar Fix Dental Loft.

If you have gaps in your teeth, alignment issues, or cracks and chips in your teeth that are making you feel self-conscious, we can help… sometimes in as little as one visit with our same day dentistry options! We’d love to help you fall in love with your smile all over again.
