Our Blog Creating Smiles, PC

Welcome to the final February edition of our dentistry blog! What brings you here today?

Are you…

…looking to optimize your oral health?

…hoping to avoid cavities, periodontal disease, etc.?

…in search of a great dental practice in Northwest Indiana?

Then you are in luck! For over 20 years now, Creating Smiles has delivered comprehensive dental services in both Valparaiso and St. John, Indiana. Our team can’t wait to partner with you on all your dentistry-related needs. You’ll find that it feels like home around here, and we treat you just like family. As such, we want to make it easy for you to keep your mouth in tip-top shape!

In both of our offices, we feature preventive dentistry for patients of all ages, and our team takes a special interest in treating young children and families. That is where it all begins. Our collective mission is to make sure that your your family’s basic hygiene habits at home and our in-office care keep you on the good road for many years to come!

This blog is actually an outgrowth of our educational efforts, and through this platform we are able to provide resources for you to utilize in-between visits to our office. Today, for example, we wanted to reveal our “secrets” for keeping your mouth healthy and your smile happy!

Check Up On Your Home Health Habits

Let’s begin at the beginning! Brush your teeth! Do this for a minimum of twice a day for at least two minutes per session. Brushing is your frontline of defense against disease and decay.

Flossing Is Non-Negotiable

Flossing is a whole lot more fun than getting cavities and losing teeth later in life. Make it part of your regular routine. With daily brushing alone, you just won’t be able to remove all the plaque from in between your teeth.

Come See Us Often

Whether or not it is us, and we sincerely hope that it will be, you really need to find a dentist you can trust and get into their office regularly. Dental cleanings are great for the entire family and should be done every 3-6 months. This preventative dental treatment is important and it will make it easier for you to fight plaque, tartar, and any emerging decay.

Plus, while you are here, it will give us a great opportunity to screen your mouth for diseases and to look for other issues that could be affecting your general health. Prevention and/or early treatment will always work out better for you.

You wouldn’t want to ignore your problems and put off treatment until, for example, a simple dental filling turned into a root canal or an extraction. Save yourself unnecessary pain and expense by keeping Creating Smiles in the loop!

Take The Next Step Today!

We hope you have been inspired by today’s blog post to take the next step! Do what you do at home, and let us take care of the rest!
