Five Tips for Healthier Smile
A beautiful, healthy smile takes work. Today we are sharing some simple tips to keep your pearly whites healthy and shiny.
1. Brush properly twice a day.
The way you brush is as important as the number of times you brush. Always take your time, moving the toothbrush in gentle, circular motions to remove plaque.
2. Floss, floss, floss.
Flossing is a total must for getting a healthy smile. Some people routinely brush their teeth before flossing. However, the opposite is considered the best dental practice.
3. Drink water.
Water continues to be the best beverage for your physical health and oral hygiene. As a rule of thumb, always drink water before and after every meal.
4. Eat crunchy fruits and vegetables.
Eating fresh, crunchy produce not only contains more healthy fiber, but it’s also the best choice for your teeth. Consider limiting sugary and acidic foods.
5. See your dentist for regular checkups.
Your everyday habits are crucial to your overall dental health. We recommend you see your dentists for check-ups at least twice a year!
