Did you know that the second week of August is recognized as National Smile Week? National smile week is the perfect time to show off your sparkling smile from Akavan Orthodontics. But before we can get to celebrate, we want to make sure our patients in Reseda, CA have picture perfect smiles. Here are a few tips to get your smile ready! (Plus, Akavan Orthodontics threw in some fun celebration ideas too!)
1. Continue Brushing, Brushing, Brushing!
Akavan Orthodontics reminds patients to always keep your teeth as clean as possible. In preparation for national smile week, ensure that you continue to brush at least twice a day, or for those patients already undergoing treatment with braces, after each meal. Removing leftover food from within the braces and on the teeth will keep them healthy and clean.
Flossing, of course, is a must for all patients in Reseda, CA who want their teeth to be in tip top shape. For those wearing braces, do not forget to keep flossing even though it may be slightly more difficult while wearing your braces. Flossing is essential to oral and all around health.
Dr. Akavan says that whitening may also be something our patients want to look into. Whitening is purely cosmetic and does not have any true health benefits, but can help to get your smile looking brighter than ever. If you are currently wearing braces from Akavan Orthodontics, it is not recommended to begin a whitening treatment now, for it may come out uneven and leave discolored areas on the teeth. However, for those patients in Reseda, CA who have completed or yet to begin treatment, whitening can be a nice option to prepare your smile for national smile week.
4. Continue Visits
Visiting your dentist and the Akavan Orthodontics Reseda office are essential to guaranteeing that your smile will be ready. Frequent visits eliminate the chance that there will be problems with your treatment, and consistent checkups help to stop any problems that do arise immediately. Contact us to set up your appointment as soon as possible, and do not forget to visit your dentist in Reseda, CA as well.
5. Now It’s Time to Celebrate
Now that you have a clean, healthy, white smile, the national smile week festivities can get underway. So, how do you celebrate national smile week? At Akavan Orthodontics, we have ideas for all ages. Try creating a craft by cutting out photos of smiles from magazines and making a “smile week” collage. Next, make a list of things that make you smile, then go out and complete at least one each day. Have a contest where throughout the week you take photos of yourself smiling in as many different places as you can, then compare with friends or family. Finally, celebrate by simply showing off your beautiful smile from Akavan Orthodontics in your own unique way.
National smile week in Reseda, CA is the perfect time to catch up on your oral health, while showing off your perfect smile from Akavan Orthodontics. Whether you are currently undergoing treatment or not, we can’t wait to watch you flash that photo ready grin during national smile week. For more information, contact us or stop by our Reseda office.
