New Jersey Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Thomas Streko, Gives the Secret To A Healthy Smile

Dr. Thomas Streko, D.M.D., Westfield cosmetic dentist, recently discussed the gold standard in tooth replacement: Dental Implants

Westfield, NJ. – November 5, 2010 – One of New Jersey’s leading cosmetic dentists, Dr. Thomas Streko, recently published an article on his website, titled “The Secret To A Healthy Smile?” In the article, Dr. Streko explains how a healthy smile starts at home with good dental habits.

Dr. Streko writes, “With advances in modern technology ranging from whitening treatments and veneers to dental implants, a beautiful, healthy smile has never been more attainable.  But if you ask any dentist what he or she considers to be “the key” to a great smile, chances are good technology will have very little to do with it.  Because when it comes right down to it, the secret of a healthy smile lies in the way you take care of your teeth and gums on a day-to-day basis.”

Dr. Streko provides 13 helpful tips to keep your smile healthy including brushing your teeth at least twice a day, using a fluoride toothpaste, flossing at least once a day, incorporating foods that are “mouth healthy” and not snacking before bedtime.

“Following these steps will not automatically guarantee you white, straight, beautiful teeth.  But what it will do is guarantee that whatever your teeth look like on the outside, they are as healthy as they can be on the inside.  Healthy teeth are much better candidates for cosmetic improvements – and good dental habits insure that any cosmetic improvements you choose to have will stay beautiful for years to come,” wrote Dr. Streko.
