New Year, New Smile
Regularly brush and floss your teeth.
Brushing twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing once a day are essential for keeping your smile healthy. Regular brushing and flossing can help remove plaque, bacteria and food particles that lead to cavities and gum disease.
Brush your tongue.
Brushing your tongue can help remove bacteria that cause bad breath and other oral health problems, leaving you with fresh breath.
Don’t forget to floss your teeth regularly.
Brushing is important, but flossing shouldn’t be neglected. When you floss, you can remove plaque and food particles that a toothbrush wouldn’t be able to reach. Additionally, flossing encourages the health of your gums, which helps prevent gum disease.
Make sure to go to the dentist on a regular basis.
Going to the dentist twice a year for checkups and cleanings is key for keeping a healthy smile. At your appointment, your dental team will look out for any signs of decay or gum disease and offer preventive treatments to help protect your teeth and gums.
Consume nutritious foods.
To help keep your teeth in good condition, maintain a nutritionally balanced diet that is low in sugar and high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Eating crunchy foods such as apples and carrots can also aid in the removal of plaque and food particles from your teeth.
Make sure to drink water frequently.
Consuming adequate amounts of water is critical for oral hygiene. Water washes away food and bacteria, and moisture helps keep your mouth healthy. In addition, fluoridated water strengthens your chompers and guards against cavities.
Smoking, vaping and other tobacco use can lead to oral health problems, such as gum disease, tooth discoloration and an increased risk of oral cancer. Quitting these habits can help to reduce the chance of these issues occurring and improve your overall health.
Protect your teeth.
Wearing a mouth guard while participating in sports can prevent injuries to your teeth, and using a night guard shields them from damage caused by teeth grinding during sleep.
