What’s Your Smile Worth?
It’s hard to say, isn’t it?
Poor oral care can lead to a number of problems. This can include decayed, stained, and infected teeth. Any of those issues can affect the appearance of your smile … as well as your confidence in face-to-face situations.
Patients have shared these concerns with us throughout our years of service in South Florida. It’s also the reason millions of people across the country are willing to spend hard-earned money for cosmetic and restorative dentistry every year.
Dr. Hoop is happy to help patients restore their smiles, but we also know its in your best interest to avoid the kinds of problems mentioned above. That’s why we encourage all our patients to make a habit of:
- Brushing your teeth twice daily
- Flossing daily
- Getting regular dental cleanings and exams
As part of our general dentistry, we’ll remove tartar and plaque buildup from your teeth. We also offer additional services, such as dental sealants and fluoride treatments to make it more difficult for bacteria to eat into your teeth.
Giving 5 minutes of your time each day to brush and floss and a few hours per year for professional care can help you keep your teeth healthy and strong.
Your Teeth Affect Your Quality of Life, Too
While damaged teeth are bad, missing teeth are worse.
When you have a gap in your smile or loose-fitting dentures, your life just isn’t the same. When you can’t eat the foods that you want to eat — or eating those foods starts to feel like a chore — it affects how much you can enjoy dining with family and friends.
You shouldn’t spend any time wondering if you can eat something. Instead, you should enjoy the flavors of your food and the company of the people who are dining with you. That’s more likely to happy if you still have a full set of healthy teeth.
Enjoy Your Smile for Many Years
With a good daily dental hygiene routine and professional care, you can keep your teeth strong and intact. We are more than ready and willing to help at Dr. Hoop’s offices in Fort Myers and Naples, FL.
