Bouncing around the outdoors as the budding of trees and the initial blooms of Spring have occurred, it’s difficult to resist the urge to flash a smile and feel joyous. How often do you feel embarrassed about the condition of your teeth and whether or not your appearance is compromised? If you’re ashamed of your smile, you’re not alone. Spring is a season to take inventory. As the winter doldrums have faded and you’re stepping outside more, those smiles are front and center. Here are a few ways to bring back that pizzazz:
–Change out your toothbrush – If you are a slave to your disposable toothbrush, consider replacing it with a fresher version and toss out the old one.
–Open the windows – Allowing the gentle breeze and light to enter your home or work environment creates an atmosphere of smiling. Productivity increases and the risk of depression is reduced.
–Teeth Whitening – If you’ve looked in the mirror and noticed your teeth yellowing or not appearing up to par, a teeth whitening treatment could be just what you need to spruce up your smile for the Spring season.
–Dietary habits – Regularly consuming foods that stain your teeth are hazardous to your smile. Why not create meals from fresh, organic ingredients? Foods that actually benefit your teeth include apples, carrots, cheeses, crunchy vegetables, cucumbers, wholesome grains and beans, and lighter proteins such as fish. All of these foods are perfect for Spring.
–Activities that reduce stress – Because our dental health is directly affected by our overall health, a benefit to participating in activities that reduce your stress level and are ones’ you actually enjoy would most certainly help your smile. Any opportunity to practice good habits is an opportunity to enhance your life and teeth.
–Regular dental exams and checkups – The value of a good teeth cleaning twice each year goes above all else. Your dentist is the gateway to measuring the status of your teeth, which ultimately affects your smile. Plan for a cleaning and consultation every six months.
As you become more aware of your smile and the benefits that upgrade your appearance, you’ll also notice how each season renews your spirit and energy.
