What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and steamed broccoli? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging path? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are in great shape? If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental x-ray showing no dental caries, we salute you.
At William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we urge everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.”
When done thoroughly and consistently, brushing and flossing are a vital component of everyday oral hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft bristled toothbrush to guard your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and be sure you reach all the surfaces.
Flossing should be done once a day and is necessary for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at San Antonio stores, so experiment until find one you like.
I’m Dr. William Stewart of William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. As a healthcare provider, I am passionate about helping each of my patients reap the benefits of oral health and avoid tooth and gum problems that can compromise their all-around health.
