What is your dental self-care routine? Simply brushing, flossing and going to your checkups? Turns out there is a lot more that you could be doing on the day-to-day in order to keep your smile looking like a million bucks.
In this blog, I have talked a lot about the principle of “dressing for success.” Moving your career forward is definitely a whole lot easier when people respect the way that you look, and this includes your smile. After all, it’s one of the first things that prospects, clients, Realtors, bankers and potential business partners will notice about you.
A large percentage of the U.S. population is still not taking care of their teeth, with around 27 percent of adults living with untreated dental issues. The need for improved dental health care across the board is already great, and growing each year as costs continue to rise. It’s time for a more holistic approach, one that is effective while still being accessible.
Every entrepreneur can afford to carve out more time for their oral health. Don’t let your smile put a damper on your real estate investing career before it’s even started. Take care of your teeth now with these little-known natural remedies for common tooth problems.
Too many patients out there simply don’t know how closely oral health is linked to full-body wellness. People should be focusing on their nutrition first in order to ensure that protective layers surrounding the teeth remain intact.
If you want to keep your enamel and gums from deteriorating, you will have to come to terms with quitting any sodas or sugary coffee beverages you currently enjoy. Adding calcium-rich foods like almonds and leafy greens will help keep teeth resilient, and snacking on apples or carrots throughout the day can. Eating healthy for your teeth will obviously benefit the rest of your body in many ways.
Eating the right foods is also useful because it maintains appropriate bacteria levels in the saliva, which help to remove residues from your mouth just after eating. Just like a poor diet has consequences, the resulting poor oral hygiene can lead to cavities, eventually posing risks to mental health, cardiovascular function, and even weakening the immune system’s ability to fight infections.
In short, the foods you eat are reflective of the way you take care of your whole self. You can’t start fresh with a new mouth, but you can always improve. Tweak your diet immediately and speak with your dentist about fixing any lingering issues so you can start a new natural oral care approach.
For years, popular dentistry in the U.S. has told us that we require fluoride-based toothpastes and mouthwashes in order to prevent cavities. Unfortunately, we are now learning that these chemical holds almost no place in preservation of oral health, and may actually have negative side effects when ingested even in trace amounts.
The fact is that fluoride is simply not required to clean the mouth and help it withstand decay and disease. New products are finally hitting the market that include natural mineral formulas, activated charcoal, and coconut oil to naturally support the mouth’s delicate natural balance.
Do these mineral toothpastes really have the potential to replace lost enamel on the teeth? That has yet to be seen, but raving customer reviews can’t be wrong.
Is changing your lifestyle to improve your smile really all that worth it? The bottom line is that a full year of clean eating, high-end natural cleaners and basic preventative care is going to be much less of a financial burden than an emergency crown, root canal, surgery or restorative work later.
Oral health care may not be a part of every entrepreneur’s priorities – especially when it comes to trying out new holistic remedies. However, in our particular career track, the stakes are always high. It’s vital to make a concerted effort to keep all aspects of the body and mind working in perfect harmony.
Only a foolish businessman neglects his health while chasing deals. Remember that in the real estate industry, the amount of deals you can make is directly proportional to the amount of time you have on this earth – so be wise with your wellness!
