If you think that having a healthy smile takes too much effort or time, think again! The some top dental care tips, you’ll be able to maintain a brighter smile…

Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Be sure to visit your dentist regularly for routine check-ups and cleanings with your hygienist. By doing so you can prevent potential issues from arising and avoid pricey treatments in the long run.

Brush Your Teeth Regularly

Needless to say, this is a must for proper dental care. Brushing helps clean teeth, but also helps fight the build up of plaque, prevents gum disease and freshens your breath. We recommend brushing at least twice everyday.

Replace Your Toothbrush Every Three Months

Over time, the bristles on your brush can become worn, meaning they won’t be able to properly clean your teeth. That’s why it’s so important to buy a new toothbrush ever 3 months or whenever your toothbrush begins to look worn. You should also change your toothbrush after whenever you’ve been ill.

Rinse If You Can’t Brush

If you can’t brush after a meal, at least rinse your mouth with water. This helps remove excess food debris that can cling to teeth and cause decay.

Cut Down on Sugar

Needless to say, sugars in foods and fizzy beverages actually feed dental decay and cause the vast majority of dental care problems. To combat this, try reduce the amount your sugar intake to improve both your dental and overall health.

Stop Smoking

Smoking can lead to a variety of dental care issues, from decay, tooth loss and gum disease. If you want to improve your dental health, try cut down on the amount you smoke or quit entirely.

Care For Your Childs Teeth Correctly

Get a fluoridated toothpaste and mouth rinse for children to make their teeth more resistant to decay and much stronger overall. Also, start taking them to a pediatric dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups by their first birthday.
