It is hard to believe that winter is almost behind us. And since spring is a great season of renewal, there are a few oral hygiene practices that can help you reboot and better maintain your healthy smile.
Today, we wanted to go over some of these activities that can set you up for a healthy, happy mouth for many years to come.
Brush Your Teeth Like You Mean It
Brushing your teeth is a non-negotiable. This practice is your frontline of defense against bacteria, disease, and decay. The American Dental Association suggests that you do it twice a day, and for two minutes per session. It is time well spent! But brushing is only the beginning.
You Have A Friend In Floss
Some folks seem to have an aversion to dental floss. But you need to know that flossing your teeth is every bit as essential as brushing your teeth. This is because dental floss is the only way to get in-between your teeth where plaque and tartar can build up, waiting to wreak havoc. It is a lot easier than dealing with root canals and extractions, we can assure you!
Mouthwash Makes A Difference
Most mouthwashes are effective at reducing bacteria levels and fighting off the decay that can lead to tooth loss. What’s more, it makes your mouth feel fresh and clean. Obviously, fluoride rinses are the best ones to get. Just check the labels!
Stop By Advanced Dental Twice A Year
