WOW! The power of a SMILE! 🙂
If you can’t find your floss during the day, choose nature’s toothbrush! Healthy and crunchy foods, like carrots and apples, can help clean your teeth naturally! And, they are good for you!
Keeping you regular dental appointments mean more than just having a bright smile. More and more research is showing the link between gum disease and other diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, respiratory disease, and cancer. Learn more with the helpful link below from the American Academy of Periodontology. Make sure to schedule your regular appointments with Dr. Dobson or Dr. Lanford for your oral health.

We hate to break it to you, but despite recent news reports, we believe flossing is still a very good habit for dental health… and we aren’t just trying to “string” you along! 🙂 Learn more with this great article from the Huffington Post.
With fall sports getting underway locally, we wanted to remind everyone about the importance of a properly fitted mouthguard.
Did you know 5 million teeth are knocked out each year during sports activities? OUCH! We can help keep that smile intact with a custom-fitted mouthguard from Keowee Smiles!
A mouthguard is an essential part of your equipment in athletics. Studies show that athletes are 60 times more likely to suffer harm to the teeth if they’re not wearing a mouthguard.
There are three types of mouthguards:
1. Stock. These are inexpensive and come pre-formed, ready to wear. Unfortunately, they often don’t fit very well. They are sometimes bulky and can make breathing and talking more difficult as well.
2. Boil and Bite. These mouth protectors can be bought at many sporting goods stores and drugstores and may offer a better fit than stock mouth protectors. They are first softened in water
(boiled), then inserted and allowed to adapt to the shape of your mouth.
3. Custom-fitted. These mouthguards are custom fitted for you by your dentist. Custom-fitted mouthguards offer the most optimum protection and comfort.
At Keowee Smiles, we can custom fit your son or daughter with a mouthguard that will protect their smile, guard against a whole lot of unwanted pain, and potentially save thousands of dollars in dental costs! Give us a call to schedule an appointment today at 864-888-3012.
We love our team at Keowee Smiles and we think you will too! We have a wonderful, talented, and compassionate team of dental healthcare professionals who are dedicated to helping you achieve your brightest and most healthy smile possible! Give us a call today to schedule an appointment! We can’t wait to see you soon!
