There are often some very specific, correct answers to your questions about smile care, which may lead you to believe there’s probably always a right and a wrong choice. However, our Silver City, NM team is pleased to remind you that there are certainly moments throughout your oral health care journey that will be much more open ended. Feeling a bit shocked but pleasantly surprised? Keep in mind that as long as you’re covering the smile protection essentials, addressing preferences is often about whatever works for you! Let’s cover some examples!

Electric Brush Or Manual Brush?

Did you know that you can just as successfully protect your smile from problems like tooth decay and gum disease with a manual brush as you can with an electric toothbrush? We know that it seems like the extra strokes provided by the powered version may offer better oral health protection. However, the truth is that when it comes to your smile care, as long as you are dedicated and successful with your technique, this one is completely up to you. Have more questions about your dental hygiene? Stick with asking us about them during your visits!

Which Two Times Of Year Are Best For Preventive Visits?

Actually, any two times of the year are just fine. It’s all about getting onto a schedule in which we see you every six months. So, whether that’s during the winter and summer or the spring and fall, it doesn’t make a difference. The important aspect of this facet of your preventive smile care is ensuring it’s happening, as mentioned, every six months. This ensures you enjoy optimal plaque and tartar removal, as well as our ability to watch over your oral health!

Choose Cosmetic Care Or Just Embrace Your Smile?

You wonder: Should you choose cosmetic smile care to address your concerns with the way your smile looks? Or, is the right answer to just embrace what nature provided you (or the current reflection of the way your life has impacted your smile’s appearance)? Again, it’s completely up to you. If you are happy with the way your smile looks, then as long as it’s healthy, you’re just fine. However, if you aren’t happy, then it’s your choice to select cosmetic care! A cosmetic consultation will help you figure it all out!
