What To Ask Your Dentist to Maximize Your Oral Care

What To Ask Your Dentist to Maximize Your Oral Care

Making the most out of your dental visit is as important to us as it most likely is to you. Which is why we want to share with you ‘What To Ask Your Dentist to Maximize Your Oral Care’!

How Are Your Dental Plans Processed?

Different dental offices have different policies within their practices as to how they are going to process your dental plan. If you have extended dental coverage, it is in your best interest to ask what to expect as far as payment is concerned.

What Sets Your Dental Treatments Apart?

Some people might be uncomfortable asking this question, but hiring a dental professional should be (ideally) a lifelong investment, and as with any investment, you should find out how it will benefit you now and in the long run.

Do You Offer Any Specialty Services?

As with how dental plans are processed differently from office to office, specialty services also differ. Where some dental offices may offer a wide variety of services, others may just offer basic oral care. So understand who is offering what, and make your decision as it best relates to your needs.

Is There Any More I Can Be Doing for My Oral Health?

How Lathem Dental Spa Can Help Minimize Premature Aging

How Lathem Dental Spa Can Help Minimize Premature Aging

As an advocate of healthy living – both inside and out, Lathem Dental Spa is always eager to share ways we can assist you in achieving optimal oral health, and we offer you positive ways to achieve such health right here at our Burnaby Dental Spa!

Leading us to our subject matter: ‘How Lathem Dental Spa Can Help Minimize Premature Aging’ – a hot topic in all sectors of medical and dental health, as well as spas and clinics across the globe, making it well worth addressing.

So without further ado…

Time and Your Teeth Don’t Always See Eye-To-Eye

As with the wear over time on your bones, skin, joints and other parts of your body, so too do your teeth “wear” as we age. But this shouldn’t mean you have to APPEAR aged. Rather, with the proper exercise, diet, skincare and oral health practices, you can easily maintain a youthful smile and avoid unnecessary premature aging.

How Your Smile Might Age

Teeth have a tendency to shift over the years due to bone loss in the jaw, which can lead to gum recession and cause your smile to change.

As well, various foods, medications and medical conditions can cause your teeth to stain or change colour, which also add to the appearance of premature aging.

The good news – this can all be reversed at our Burnaby Dental Spa where we offer you regular dental treatments such as cleanings, cosmetic dentistry such as veneers, along with spa services, which we would love to introduce you too in order to help you regain your youthful appearance!

Prevent an Aging Smile By…

  • Floss, and again we say FLOSS! Keeping the space between your teeth clean will better ensure these gaps don’t discolour and cause your smile to appear unhealthy
  • Brush, at least 2-3 times a day after every meal in order to help prevent decay and discolouration
  • Have your teeth whitened by a professional at Lathem Dental Spa in Burnaby
  • Consider Cosmetic Dental Treatments at our Burnaby Dental Spa, such as veneers to effortlessly maintain a straight white smile
  • Have your teeth straightened, creating an immediate healthier smile

Aging is a beautiful reality we all share, and it is absolutely nothing to shy away from or hide. But premature aging is definitely something we all can agree is unnecessary, and as it pertains to your smile – Lathem Dental Spa is here to help you maintain and/or regain a youthful, beautiful smile in a serene setting at your leisure!
