It’s easy to become a little complacent about your dental health. At Dr. Bill Dorfman DDS in Century City, we know that all too well! Our goal in this blog post is for you to evaluate where you stand and consider how you can improve things.

Brushing

  • Good: Brush teeth once a day.
  • Better: Brush teeth right after each meal.
  • Best: Brush after each meal and floss correctly before bed.

Dental Checkups

  • Good: See us if you get a toothache.
  • Better: See us once a year even if you don’t notice any dental problems.
  • Best: Twice-yearly, have a thorough dental exam and professional dental cleaning at our office.

A White Smile

  • Good: Use a whitening toothpaste.
  • Better: Use a whitening product at home.
  • Best: Schedule an in-office whitening treatment.

Missing Tooth

  • Good enough for some people: Ignore it. (We don’t recommend this.)
  • Better: Get a quality dental bridge.
  • Best: Restore your smile with a durable and natural-functioning dental implant.

Smile-Friendly Nutrition

  • Good: Eat a healthy diet.
  • Better: Eat a healthy diet and limit sugary snacks and beverages.
