Your oral health care should not be taken casually, as it is often the difference between a damaged smile and a sparkling magnificent one. Even the tiniest details can have lasting effects on your smile. Focus on tips and techniques you should ask yourself if you hope for a better smile with better oral health care, including the following:

– Schedule and attend all regular examinations and bi-annual professional cleanings with your dentist
– Get rid of any unhealthy habits you may have that can damage your mouth, including smoking and using drugs.
– Stay away from sugary drinks and foods, as these can increase your risk for tooth decay and gum disease.
– Speak with your dentist about ways to enhance your brushing and flossing techniques.
– Prevent damage to your teeth by avoiding any mouth jewelry that can crack your teeth and cut your gums.
– Try to wear safety gear and equipment for any activity that can potentially damage or injure your teeth and gums.
– Brush your teeth at least twice every day as well as floss at least once per day.
– Guard your mouth against the effects of halitosis by brushing your tongue and teeth and using mouthwash when applicable.
