“Being committed to your oral hygiene is critical.”
Who We Are
I started Hutchinson Dental in 2015. We are a family dental practice that can accommodate a variety of dental needs. We mostly perform general dentistry procedures, but if something more in the way of cosmetic dentistry or management of sleep disorders is needed, we also offer those services. We also have an exceptional network of specialists that we utilize when needed.
Growing up, I had a friend who couldn’t afford the dental cleaning her German Shepherd needed. We bought a scaler from the pharmacy, and her dog let me clean his teeth! This small achievement encouraged me to research pre-dental courses. I continued down the dental path and never deviated.
I am a fan of Crest products. Just in time for the holidays, Crest has a new product called Whitening Emulsions—like a whitening pen to brighten your smile. It is a little technique- sensitive at first, but easy after that. And the best part is, it works!
Let It Go
With so much out of our control—compared to the easy, pre-COVID-19 lives we led—I think the best thing any of us can do in the interest of self-preservation is to control what you can and to let the rest go. You have to filter what you let bother you and just go on with your day.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am itching for a trip! We had several trips canceled since the spring, and one by one future trips are being canceled by the airlines—even Thanksgiving. Sure. I understand, but I am looking forward to the time when we can go away and explore like we used to. A girl can dream!
Before & After
This is a continuation of a patient I shared earlier this year. This patient had clenched his teeth for years, resulting in short teeth that kept chipping. I built up his bite to allow the space to restore a length that is esthetic, functional and predictable. My lab did a beautiful job with his porcelain work!
There is nothing like your own teeth; being committed to your oral hygiene is critical. With so many people working from home, it is easy to get out of a structured routine. Remember to brush your teeth at least twice a day and find time to floss. Do not let bad habits be your new normal!
