Taking Care Of Your Teeth Before Becoming A Flight Attendant

Dentist Blog

When you think about a cabin crew member, you think of a helpful, smiling person. The truth is, your smile is important when you work in a customer service and detail oriented position. If you plan to become a flight attendant, you should get your smile as straight and as white as possible. The person who can help you do this is the dentist. Here are a few things to do for your smile before you start to apply to flight attendant positions. 

Start with Invisible Straighteners

Invisible or clear straighteners should be started on your teeth right away. If you have any tooth spacing issues, the straighteners will move your teeth into proper position, filling any gaps and making sure teeth are straight. This can be started along with any other tooth care regimen that you have, so the straighteners are a good first purchase.

Go to your dentist to get fitted for proper invisible straighteners and begin to wear them nightly for the best results. Once the straighteners no longer fit, you should get fitted for a new set. 

Get Composite Fillings

Since you will be flying on a regular basis and staying away from home, the last thing that you want to have to deal with while away and on long haul flights is a toothache. This will make it harder to work and harder to smile. Get all cavities filled before they become a bigger problem.

When you choose fillings, go with composite fillings. These fillings are the same color as your teeth, so they will not interrupt your beautiful white smile. Most fillings can be done all together so getting this service taken care of can be a short process. 

Get Teeth whitening

Being away from home many days of the month means a lot of eating out. Long flight and long days typically mean drinking coffee or sodas to keep yourself energetic. All of these things can wreak havoc on the color of your teeth. Having a lot of coffee or eating out often can begin to stain your teeth.

To keep your teeth as clean as your uniform, you should get regular whitening treatments. Start your treatments before you head out for interviews to make a good impression.

After you get the job, see your dentist at least every few months for a new whitening treatment. This will keep your teeth white despite dealing with an airport and airplane food diet.

Improving My Dental Appointments

After dealing with a few root canals, I realized that it was time to take my dental hygiene a more seriously. I talked with my dentist about what I could do differently, and he was full of great suggestions that would help. He walked me through different ways to brush, floss, and take care of tartar buildup, and it was really amazing to see the difference that it made. I also started taking a fluoride supplement to strengthen my enamel. When I made it to my next appointment, my dentist was blown away with the improvement. This blog is all about improving your dental appointments by keeping your teeth healthier.
