This Year, Make a New Year’s Resolution to Smile About!

January 3rd, 2012

Let’s face it- when was the last time you managed to keep a New Year’s resolution? We at Southcenter Dental believe the key to sticking to a goal is picking one that is both reasonable and attainable. If you haven’t yet picked a New Year’s resolution, consider setting one that will improve your oral health!
For example, resolve to brush twice and floss once a day. Good oral hygiene only takes a few minutes a day, and can make a big difference in your oral health and overall health too! For more oral health-themed resolutions for you and your family, check out this article.
We would love to see what you come up with, share with us by commenting on this post or on our Facebook page. Whatever your New Year’s Resolution, we wish you the very best for 2012!

-Happy New Year, from your friends at Southcenter Dental

And speaking of smiling, in poll conducted by Glamour Magazine earlier this year, people were asked, “If you had to pick between having perfect teeth, eyesight or hair, which would you choose?

Well, 44 percent of folks out there chose teeth! In addition, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry conducted a study and found that 99.7 percent of those polled believed a smile is an important social asset. Respondents said straightness, whiteness, cleanliness, as well as the sincerity and sparkle of a person’s smile were all important factors not only socially, but career-wise as well.

Ask Dr. Baruffi: Why are regular dental checkups so important?

December 12th, 2011

Are you brushing your teeth twice a day? If yes, that’s great; but, don’t forget that it’s also important for you to visit Southcenter Dental every six months in addition to brushing your teeth a couple times a day. Regular dental checkups are important for maintaining good oral health.

Dr. Baruffi can check for problems that might not be seen or felt, detect cavities and early signs of decay, treat oral health problems early and show you how to properly brush and floss your teeth.

During an oral exam Dr. Baruffi can check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks and tongue. Checkups will also include a thorough teeth cleaning and polishing. If you have not been to the dentist in the last six months, give us a call at 206.973.8211 to schedule an appointment!
