Are you doing your part to ensure your smile remains in outstanding condition? Although it may seem like a chore at times, the tiny amounts of time you spend each day caring for your smile, including brushing and flossing for a few minutes, can have wonderful effects on your smile that will last for years.

 

When participating in any high contact sports or high-risk activities, have a risk assessment of your teeth and gums and wear safety equipment as needed. The safer your mouth is the better off you will be guarded should the worst occur. For unhealthy habits such as smoking and chewing tobacco and using drugs, eradicate them immediately from your life.

Try to make sure to floss and brush your teeth daily. Typically, you should brush your teeth at least 2 times a day and floss at least 1 times a day. Furthermore, it is recommended to use supplemental cleaners such as mouthwash after meals. When eating, never eat snacks between meals as this can raise your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Instead, always eat a healthy and balanced diet.
