To help you keep your smile healthy during the holidays and through the new year, we have listed a few tips and tricks to consider.
Tips For A Healthy Smile
Keeping your smile healthy doesn’t have to be time consuming or difficult. In fact, most in-home preventive practices to keep your smile healthy takes less than two minutes each.
- Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes. Brushing for at least two minutes helps remove harmful bacteria and debris that may harm the tooth enamel.
- Floss your teeth to remove debris from in-between your teeth. Flossing can remove particles and debris in the mouth that may harm your teeth and gums. Flossing is an important part of maintaining optimal gum health. Flossing can even help minimize your risk of developing gum disease.
- Chew sugar-free gum. Chewing sugar-free gum between meals can help keep your teeth clean. Sugar-free gum can help remove debris from the teeth and keep your breath smelling fresh in the process.
- Drink water. Try to limit the number of sugary drinks you consume. Sugar is harmful to the tooth enamel and can even lead to tooth decay and cavities if not thoroughly removed from the teeth.
