A healthy smile isn’t just nice to look at. Basic dental care prevents diseases that damage tissue and the bones that support teeth, and oral health is tied strongly to overall health. These tips will have you on the right track.
Brush twice daily, and floss once a day. Use a soft bristled brush and change it out every three months. Use fluoride toothpaste to prevent cavities, and avoid sugar and tobacco.
Be careful with water picks – they can actually cause bacteria to get lodged in your gums if used incorrectly. Home tooth whiteners that use a tray are best avoided as well since they may contain a substance that damages enamel.
