Oral Hygiene

A little preventive care goes a long way

People often ask us, “What’s the secret for a lifetime of good dental check-ups?” We always answer, “Hygiene!” A solid oral home care routine, combined with healthy eating and lifestyle habits, and of course, regular visits to Dr. Muse is a winning combination. As your trusted Lafayette dentist, we would much rather see you twice a year for cleanings and exams than have to treat an advanced case of gum disease or replace teeth damaged by decay.

No one likes a dirty mouth

A healthy smile is one of the primary indicators of youth, vitality, and of course – health! It’s one of the first things we notice about a person. It’s how we express feelings of happiness and joy. Is your smile making the first impression you want it to? If you’ve been neglecting your oral health – maybe you’re afraid of the dentist and have been putting off your appointment, or maybe you think flossing is overrated – your smile is probably not living up to its full potential! We would love to see you, give you one of the best dental cleanings you’ll find in Lafayette, and show you what your smile is really worth!

The mouth is a gateway to the body

Most folks believe that your oral health stops at your mouth. This is simply not the case. In fact, there are significant correlations between the health of your mouth and the health of the rest of your body. Did you know that when left untreated, gum disease can lead to serious systemic health problems like diabetes, heart attack, and stroke? Did you know that around 80% of the American adult population suffers from some form of gum disease? Scary, isn’t it? Did you know that bite alignment problems can lead to migraines and sleep disorders? The health of your mouth has direct consequences on your overall health and your quality of life, and maintain a healthy mouth today means avoiding expensive and painful complications down the road.

Keep your defense strong by following a strict oral hygiene routine at home, maintaining healthy eating and lifestyle habits, and coming to see Dr. Muse twice annually for routine cleanings and exams. Give us a call at (337) 446-2397 or schedule an appointment online.
