A Few Things Your Boise Dentist Wants You to Know

A Few Things Your Boise Dentist Wants You to Know

A healthy body is a sign of a healthy mind. This includes the health of your mouth, teeth and gums. While we all try to eat right and exercise, many of us often forget the importance of proper Boise dental care. At Summit Dental Group, we care about your oral health, and in today’s blog, we’d like to take the time to tell you a few things about your mouth that will make you want to take your Boise dental care as seriously as we do.

Go easy on your teeth and gums. Brushing your teeth to hard can be bad when it comes to cleaning your teeth. Vigorous brushing can wear down tooth enamel and damage the gums.

Bleeding gums are a red flag. Be sure to tell your Boise dentist if your gums typically bleed after brushing or flossing. Bleeding may be a sign that you are at risk for gum disease or may be an indication of other health issues.

Share your dental history. In order for your Boise dentist to provide you with the most comprehensive care, they need to know your full dental history. If you’re a new patient, make sure to have your Boise dental records sent to Summit Dental Group prior to your first visit.

Boise dental cleaning and checkups are important

How often do you visit the Boise dentist just for a check-up, and not exclusively when you’re experiencing pain? To prevent your oral health from deteriorating, it is important that you take regular appointments at your Boise dental office, and get your teeth and gums examined. You are then more likely to be protected from harmful diseases in the future.

At Summit Dental Group, our team recognizes that your past, present, and future oral health can affect your overall health. We encourage you to take your Boise dental care seriously, and visit your Boise dentist regularly to ensure that your mouth is as healthy as it can be. If you have any questions, or would like to make an appointment, please call us at (208) 345-8962 today.
