No matter your age, there's no secret formula for keeping your teeth healthy and looking great; it all comes down to regular brushing and flossing, routine checkups, eating a balanced diet, and avoiding detrimental oral habits.

Having a bright, beautiful smile is nothing to take lightly. To maintain optimal oral health requires a little bit of effort on your part. Below are some simple recommendations that can help safeguard the wellbeing of your teeth:

Here are a few straightforward recommendations for protecting the health of your smile:

  • Schedule Regular Checkups and Professional Cleanings at Our Dental Practice
  • Establish an Effective Oral Hygiene Routine At Home, Including Brushing and Flossing Daily
  • Avoid Unhealthy Habits Such as Smoking Cigarettes & Chewing Tobacco
  • Enjoy a Balanced Diet Rich in Nutrients to Keep Your Teeth Strong
  • Limit Consumption of Sugary Foods and Carbonated Beverages
  • When Playing Sports, Protect Your Smile With A Mouth Guard

Keep Your Teeth Sparkling with Brushing & Flossing!

A healthy smile begins with a diligent daily routine of brushing and flossing. The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time, using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride containing toothpaste. This helps to maintain strong enamel and prevents tooth decay. Also important is the removal of plaque from between the teeth and under the gum line on a daily basis. By spending just a few minutes each day gently flossing your teeth, you can significantly reduce your risk of dental disease.

What You Eat Matters!

During your regular checkup visit at our office, one of our team members will demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques as well as offer sound dietary advice. While consuming sweet foods and sugary beverages can harm your dental health, other nutrient-rich foods can help keep your teeth strong and boost your resistance to oral disease.
