Hey, What’s That Between Your Teeth?

Do you have something between your teeth? Perhaps, actually, there’s nothing between your teeth in terms of dental tissue and that is your complaint. Though you may spend more time thinking about your toothbrush, your tooth surfaces, and your smile as a whole, today our Southlake, TX team would like to shift the focus! Let’s zoom in on the between-your-teeth stuff that can make a huge impact on your oral health, your dental care, and your appearance, so you know you are prepared to care for each and every last detail!

Are There Spaces There?

What’s between your teeth? Nothing much, you say, because your teeth are set apart, leaving spaces between them? Fortunately, when your primary upset is the fact that your teeth don’t touch, there’s not a whole lot you need to worry about. Instead, there’s cosmetic care to get excited about. Patients are frequently unaware that through the help of dental bonding or veneers, we can close those openings, so your smile is no longer full of little spaces. Find out more when you see us for a dental care visit.

Do You Have Buildup?

Maybe your teeth are aligned as you wish but what you are dealing with between them is buildup. You’re under the impression that you’re completing your daily dental care as we suggest but you are still having a problem. In most cases, this means that one of your essential preventive care responsibilities is being forgotten about. Let’s run down the list, so you can be sure you’re taking a complete approach:

  • You need to brush your smile every day, in the morning and then again in the evening
  • You need to floss every day, too
  • You need to come to our practice twice every year for cleanings (and checkups)

Have You Developed Cavities?

What’s that you say? You have cavities between your teeth? In most cases, this happens when patients are good about brushing and even about coming in for cleanings but not about flossing. When you don’t floss, you miss plaque, bits of food, and then tartar develops. This area is saturated at every moment with bacteria, which makes decay a much likelier concern. Begin flossing just one time each and every day (and receive fillings for your any existing decay) and you’ll be in good shape in no time.
