Signs You Have a Really Healthy Smile
Posted on 8/15/2019 by Dr. VanBrunt
Besides asking us whether you have a healthy smile, there are some signs you can look for when you're at home. This is great information to have so you'll know when you need an appointment with our office because something is wrong. So, here's what you should be watching for. Healthy GumsYour gums should be pink, not red, and shouldn't bleed when you brush or floss them. They should cover your teeth's roots so there's plenty of support for these teeth. When there isn't enough support you're at risk of your teeth falling out. Good BreathWhen you have bad breath, it's usually a good indication that you have an underlying oral health problem. This problem could be as simple as you're not cleaning your tongue properly. However, it could also indicate that you're suffering from gum disease or tooth decay. Strong Tooth EnamelYour teeth need enamel to protect them so they're not sensitive. You can tell when you don't have enough enamel because your teeth will look jagged or rough. (This could also be a sign that you've been grinding your teeth though.) Another way of knowing that you've worn out your enamel is that it'll look yellow because the dentin is showing through. Make sure discoloring isn't caused by stains from some of the foods and drinks you consume. A Properly Aligned BiteFor your mouth to function properly and get cleaned well your bite must be properly aligned. When your teeth are misaligned, you won't only have problems chewing, but you're also at risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease, or TMD. Even if you have a healthy smile you should still be visiting our office for routine checkups and cleanings. If you don't have an appointment scheduled for this, pick up your phone, give us a call, and let us schedule an appointment for you....
