The universal sign for happiness, a smile has the power to light up a room, relieve stress, help make a good first impression and regular smiling can even extend your life by up to seven years!
On top of brushing and flossing, the best way to ensure your grin looks great all year round is with regular visits to the dentist.
Boasting over 35 years experience performing preventative, cosmetic and emergency procedures, your pearly whites are in safe hands with LifeCare Dental’s Dr Alex Negoescu and his friendly team.
The principal dentist at LifeCare Forrest Chase, Dr Alex graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1980 and in the decades following has clocked over 10,000 wisdom teeth removals!
Since founding LifeCare in 1989, Dr Alex and his colleagues have helped countless patients learn to love their smiles again via treatments that range from straightening to implants, teeth whitening to fillings.
LifeCare also offers a 24 hour service on mouthguards, as well as splints for teeth grinders who suffer from aching teeth and jaws during their waking hours.
“I see different problems every day and different people and that’s very exciting,” Dr Alex says of why he loves his job.
With tooth decay on the rise – it’s now the most common disease in Australia, affecting one in five adults – Dr Alex says it’s more important than ever to be conscious of good dental health habits.
“If you want to save thousands, get you and your family started on flossing and using piksters (mini brushes like floss),” he suggests.
“Brush twice a day and if you floss you won’t need any fillings done!”
While any brushing helps, for optimum results Dr Alex recommends brushing for at least two minutes, twice a day, in addition to flossing once a day.
If you’re a regular brusher and flosser but still struggle with bad breath, you’ll be relieved to learn that LifeCare also offers Perth’s only bad breath clinic.
