Ever wonder if you are doing everything right for your mouth?

Ever wonder if you are doing everything right for your mouth?

Here are some dental dos and dont’s: 

DO’S

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and try to floss daily. This is key to keeping your teeth healthier and whiter!
  • See a dentist at least every 6 months! They will be able to detect cavities and other oral issues.
  • Change your tooth brush regularly. A tooth brush should be changed every 3-6 months
  • Replace your tooth brush after you have suffered an illness to prevent the risk of getting yourself sick again.
  • Use a mouth rinse that contains fluoride to help protect your teeth from cavities by keeping the enamel strong.

DON’TS

  • SMOKE! Smoking is bad for your teeth and health. It is also the leading cause of gum disease.
  • Brush your teeth too hard. Brush gently because aggressive brushing can do more harm than good.
  • Snack often throughout the day. Junk food, especially sweets lead to tooth decay.
  • Brush your teeth in the shower to save time. This is wasteful and ultimately does not save you any time.
  • Fear the dentist! If you avoid the dentist now, you will likely pay for it down the road.
