Tips for Extending the Life of Your Smile

A bright smile and good oral health result from good dental habits. Prevent cavities and plaque build up with proper oral care. Also, prevent bad breath and more serious gum disease issues. Regular visits to the dentist can catch tooth decay problems before you experience discomfort.


Most problems found in the teeth are easily avoided with good dental hygiene practices. Listed below are a few ways to keep your mouth in top health!


Brushing Properly

Always brush your teeth before bed. Ideally, you want to brush after every meal. If you’re unable to do so, a quick rinse of your mouth with water significantly reduces the risk of bacteria buildup until you can grab your toothbrush to finish the job.

Don’t Forget Your Tongue

Many of us may brush our teeth according to our dentist’s direction, but we miss one obvious culprit of bacteria growth, the tongue. Yes, this oral workhorse sees a lot of food and drinks throughout the day along with your teeth and gums. Be sure to give it a good brush and rinse twice a day. Keep your breath smelling fresh by proper cleaning of your tongue. A good mouthwash will help lower surviving bacteria after proper brushing and flossing.


Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Dentistry is a preventative practice if used regularly. So often patients wait until they feel discomfort or experience a tooth crumble from too much decay before contacting a dentist. By that point it may be an emergency dentist visit.
