Brighten Your Smile

The  American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry recently conducted a survey to find out what most people would like to improve the most about their smiles. The answer? Whiter and brighter teeth. Our team at Niles and Family Dentistry can help you achieve a dazzling smile in our office or at home with a home kit. Tray whitening is a less expensive whitening treatment you can use while in the comfort of your own home. This is achieved by taking an impression of your mouth to create customized clear whitening trays for you to wear.  The whitening gel trays are worn 30-60 minutes up to twice a day. Your other option is to have an in-office whitening treatment. This treatment can be done at the same appointment after your cleaning provided that your gums/teeth are healthy. The effort that you make to whiten your smile and to keep your smile bright through proper oral hygiene and visits to our office will keep your smile bright and keep your mouth healthy.

Boost Your Confidence and Your Mood

Research has shown that how people they feel about their smile directly affects their self esteem.  A healthy self esteem affects multiple areas of your life. Improving your smile is one way that you can help to give your self esteem and confidence a boost.  Smiling helps elevate your mood and the mood of those you come in contact with. The science behind smiling is fascinating. Smiling triggers the release of neuropeptides that are tasked with fighting off stress. (Neuropeptides are tiny molecules that help neurons to communicate.) When you smile, the “feel good” neurotransmitters–dopamine, endorphins and serotonin–are all released helping to relax your body, lower your heart rate and your blood pressure.

Help Your Immune System

The mouth-body connection is a real thing. Infection, regardless of where it is found in your body, stresses your immune system making it more susceptible to foreign invaders. We talk about the importance of good oral hygiene practices and regular cleanings because when you don’t keep your gums healthy it puts you at risk for developing  gum disease and periodontal infections. Gum diseases/infections allow toxic bacteria and organisms to take up residence in your mouth and have constant access to your bloodstream so they can affect other bodily systems as well. Scheduling a comprehensive exam and cleaning can help you assess your current oral health and help improve your current oral health so your immune system isn’t taxed and is primed and ready to fight off school-related bacteria.

Don’t Be Too Busy for a Dental Cleaning

We understand that the weeks before school begins can be really busy, so scheduling a dental cleaning may not be high on your list, but your cleaning and exam will only take between 25 and 30 minutes and can remove infection-causing plaque from your teeth and gums helping you start the year on track for a healthy mouth.  Cleanings also involve a polishing treatment that will leave your teeth feeling and looking their best. Add a whitening treatment to further enhance the power of your smile! Our state-of-the-art technology will work fast to help you leave our office with a new and improved smile and increased confidence that you are ready to face a new year.
