Many of us take pride and follow various health tips to care for our body, but how about our smile? Follow these tips for a healthier mouth and smile.
Use an Electric Toothbrush – Studies have shown that electric toothbrushes work more efficiently and are easier to use than manual brushes. They are better at plaque removal and prevent gingivitis and gum disease.
Clean Between Your Teeth – Brushing alone does not remove plaque from between the teeth. Be sure to use floss or interdental brushes to remove the plaque from tooth contacts.
Get Regular Dental Check-Ups – See your dentist and dental hygienist regularly for routine assessments and cleanings. Your recommended interval may range from 3-9 months, depending on your individual needs.
Use Fluoride Daily – Dental Fluoride is a common ingredient added to toothpaste and some mouthwash that helps fight against cavities. If you are particularly cavity prone, your dentist may recommend a professional, in-office fluoride treatment.
