How Taking Selfies Might Improve Your Dental Health

tooth whitening West Palm BeachJust about everyone knows what a selfie is. These pictures have become works of art, and many photos are quite elaborate. Some people think that taking selfies is vain, but there are many positive aspects to consider. The following will show you how this art form can improve your oral health.

Artful Tooth-Brushing

Your oral health depends on many things, such as your diet and keeping up with visits to your oral specialist, not to mention oral hygiene. There is a proper way of brushing your teeth and an improper way that might be doing more harm than good.

Research found that taking selfies or video-selfies could help improve your technique in a number of ways. For one, these pictures or videos can be shared with your oral specialist for guidance, or you can simply inspect your teeth for possible issues.

Dr. Dan Casel wants you to know that it is important to brush away from the gums and always at a 45 degree angle. Brushing towards the gums could push bacteria near the gumline. You should also make sure that you do not brush harshly as this can damage your enamel. Keep in mind that you should brush for at least two to three minutes.

The Healthy Smile Revolution

You might not think about cosmetic dentistry often. Many people ignore oral issues because they can hide them, or they feel that dental visits are too expensive.

Selfies are changing that and forcing people to pay attention to their smiles, which excites the team of oral specialists at Premier Dentistry. Dr. Casel’s team is always focused on improving oral health as well as your smile.

They know that dental gaps increase your risk of cavities, and they know dental stains could have detrimental effects on a person’s self-esteem. It seems that this selfie-craze is making people pay more attention to their teeth because they want to be able to smile without worries.

One procedure that many people are opting for is teeth whitening, which is a simple procedure that can make your smile Hollywood-worthy.

Those with serious issues such as dental imperfections, cracks, or chips may want to consider veneers. These porcelain laminates are created to fit your teeth perfectly. They are permanently attached over your damaged teeth. There is no reason to worry about the appearance of this porcelain shell. You will be given an opportunity to see how the veneers will look before deciding on them.

People who are missing a tooth or two might want to consider dental implants, especially if you don’t want to alter your facial structure. Your teeth provide support for your entire mouth, but a missing tooth can offset this support and lead to facial changes. Replacing those missing teeth might encourage you to take even more selfies.

It might seem strange that the selfie-craze can help oral health, but the truth is that it can. It is giving people a new reason to visit their cosmetic dentistry office. The dentists at Premier Dentistry are always looking forward to helping people reshape their smiles and provide their patients with optimum oral health solutions.
