Are you making sure that your smile remains in outstanding condition? Although it may seem like a bore at times, the small amounts of consideration you spend each day caring for your smile, including brushing and flossing efficiently, can have dramatic effects on a smile that will last for years.

The excitement of a better smile awaits with oral health care. The key to understanding oral health care includes the following:

– Be sure to brush your teeth twice daily and floss your teeth once daily.

– Try to listen to your dentist and attend your bi-annual professional cleanings.

– Always eat healthy, nutritious, and balanced meals every day that are free from excess sugar.

– Search for ways to keep your teeth clean like using mouthwash or chewing sugarless gum after meals.

– Avoid unhealthy habits like smoking, drinking, and using drugs.

– Search for teeth cleaning products that feature the ADA Seal of Acceptance or recommended and approved by your dentist.

– Exercise caution when putting your oral health at risk during times of exercise or contact sports, so wear safety equipment.
