Healthy Living Starts With A Smile

general dentistry Maple Grove


Here’s a question from the team at Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove: what comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and carrot sticks? The sound of your feet hitting the ground as you jog? If you pictured a white, healthy smile with no cavities, we salute you.

At Arbor Lakes Dental – Jamie L. Sledd, DDS, we urge everyone with a smile to include oral health in your definition of “healthy living.”

When done correctly 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 protect 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 Maple Grove stores, so experiment until find one you like.

At Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove, we offer family and cosmetic dentistry services that keep your smile clean and healthy. Call us to schedule your next checkup today.
