Take Care Of Your Smile

 In Dental Care, Health

Taking care of your health should always include your oral health! Not only will it keep your teeth in good shape, but it will benefit your overall health as well. Here are two simple ways to take care of your smile.

Daily Care

The best way to care for your oral health is to implement a strict daily routine. It should include brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and utilize fluoride products like toothpaste and mouthwash. Brushing your teeth helps remove any leftover food or bacteria in your mouth from the day. If food particles get stuck in between your teeth, it can lead to other problems. Plaque may begin to form, which can quickly turn into tartar if not dealt with properly. In addition, tartar may open the door to cavities, gum disease, and more.

Check-Ups

Doctors recommended yearly check ups so they can monitor and track your health. The same is expected from your dentist. You should visit your dentist a minimum of once a year. These appointments are essential to your oral health. Your yearly check up will consist of a cleaning and examination. The dental hygienist remove any plaque or tartar from your teeth, and brush and floss. If needed, they will also take dental x-rays of your mouth. At the end, your dentist will come in and do a quick exam of your teeth. If you have any concerns to discuss with your dentist, now is the time!
