Smile with confidence!

Everyone wants a healthy, beaming smile that will help you stand out in a crowd. The benefits of good oral hygiene extend beyond just physical appearance. By acting now to commit to improving your oral health, you can avoid dental problems and save yourself from uncomfortable procedures down the line. At Encino Dental Esthetics, Dr. Kiai and his team believe these top 5 ways to promote oral health will give you plenty to smile about:


  1. Brush twice a day – once in the morning and again before bed! Oral Health Foundation suggests replacing your toothbrush every two to three months to keep your bristles in good shape. Don’t rush as you brush for the best results. Two to three minutes twice a day is all it takes!
  2. Floss daily– this extra step is vital. Be gentle and use a good amount of floss to be able to access hard-to-reach areas. Mayo Clinic notes that proper flossing prevents the buildup of bacteria that a toothbrush just can’t quite reach.
  3. Toughen up your teeth with fluoridated toothpaste. Fluoride is essential for building strength and preventing cavities.
  4. Regular dental visits - tackle tartar and plaque buildup with a visit to your dentist. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Kiai at Encino Dental Esthetics for an oral-health check-up today. Dr. Kiai and his team will develop the best plan to keep your teeth and gums healthy and dazzling!
  5. Cut out or cut down on bad habits - smoking, sugar, and carbonated beverages are your teeth’s worst enemies.


Following these easy steps will help keep your mouth in tip-top condition with healthy and strong teeth and gums. Book an appointment with Encino Dental Esthetics today to get on your way to a million-dollar smile!
