Dr. Pitts Reminds You That Your Smile Can Last A Lifetime

 

TODAY’S REMARKABLE TECHNOLOGIES and advanced materials, coupled with Dr. Pitt’s artistic eye and extensive training greatly increase the likelihood that you’ll keep your smile for life!

As you may know, we have created a little series of blog posts designed to talk about each phase of “The Lifetime of YOUR Smile”.

We’ve divided “The Lifetime of Your Smile” into four phases:

> 1–20 Year Old Smiles
> 20–40 Year Old Smiles
> 40–65 Year Old Smiles
> 65+ Year Old Smiles

We invite you to pass the information along!

Must do’s, Should do’s, and Could do’s

We all prioritize decision making in all aspects of our lives by “must do’s,” “should do’s,” and “could do’s.” Our goal is to make sure you’re comfortable with every oral health decision you make, and that you see the difference between the “musts,” the “shoulds,” and the “coulds.”

Of course, these lists aren’t exhaustive—and, there are no absolutely right or wrong answers to what you must, should, or could be doing about your oral health and appearance. Everyone has different priorities and different wants and needs. Think of these posts as a starting point! And if you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us and we’ll chat.

Today We’re Talking About 40–65 Year Old Smiles

THE BEST PART OF LIFE IS BEGINNING! It’s such a great time in history to be this age! And don’t forget, as science continues to prove, the crucial role proper dental care plays in your overall health and appearance. So eat right, exercise, enjoy yourself along the way, and flash that gorgeous smile more often!


Must do’s

  • It’s estimated that up to 3/4 of adults over age 35 have some degree of gum disease. Work with Dr. Pitts to be sure you don’t.
  • 63% of “boomers” with an oral health problem considered to be an indication of a more serious problem, are unaware of the connection. Don’t skip your regular check ups with Dr. Pitts.

Should do’s

  • You likely still have silver mercury amalgam fillings, placed when you were a teen. Not only are they unsightly and can damage tooth structure, but some believe they may present other disadvantages. Work with Dr. Pitts to systematically replace them with greatly-improved, durable white composite fillings.
  • Half your life lies ahead. You remodeled your home after a few decades—it’s time to remodel your smile. Dr. Pitts provides “upgrades” that will allow you to keep your teeth for rest of your life.

Could do.

  • Well beyond botox, breast implants, and viagra… Nothing makes you look AND feel younger than a beautiful smile. Today’s whitening treatments—often combined with one of many porcelain veneer options—can create a personal smile makeover that is truly your “fountain of youth.”
