Five Tips for a Healthy Mouth
Your smile can be one of the first things noticed about you. Yet, many people still don’t put enough emphasis on their oral health. Untreated cavities can cause pain and infections, which can spread to other areas and have serious health side effects.
It’s important to take these proper steps on a daily basis to maintain a healthy mouth and prevent potential health issues.
- Brush Your Teeth at Least Twice Daily – Brushing your teeth after meals is the best way to prevent bacteria from building up on the teeth. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush or an electric toothbrush for the most effective plaque removal.
- Replace Your Toothbrush – every three months.
- Floss Regularly – While brushing is an essential part of your oral care routine, flossing can not be overlooked. Regular flossing helps to remove debris between the teeth, in areas where the toothbrush can not reach.
- Watch What You Eat – Avoiding sugary foods and drinks is a great start to a healthy smile. A balanced diet that includes fruits, vegetables, and dairy will provide the vitamins and nutrients that aid in strengthening tooth enamel.
- Visit Your Dentist Regularly – It’s essential to continue to visit your dentist twice a year for a check-up and cleaning.
