When it comes to your smile, you probably want it to be as healthy and bright as possible, right? At Town Square Dental, we want your smile to be as bright and healthy as possible too! There are various steps patients can take to ensure their smile is healthy, protected and bright, which include:
Practice proper at-home dental care.
When it comes to having optimal oral health, at-home dental care is an essential factor. We recommend that our patients brush a minimum of twice a day (we’d prefer if you brush after every meal), floss at least once a day and also clean their tongue. This can reduce bacteria and plaque in the mouth, reducing your risk for tooth decay, cavities, infections, and even disease.
Use the right dental products.
Using the right dental products can go a long way when it comes to the health and brightness of your smile. We recommend always using a soft-bristled toothbrush which fits perfectly in the mouth. Harder bristles can actually cause damage to the enamel of your teeth. When it comes to toothpaste, mouthwash, and any other products, always look for products which are ADA approved.
Eat a healthy diet.
What you consume also plays a huge role in the health and even appearance of your smile. We recommend eating a diet that is high in natural foods such as fruits, vegetables, and meats. Packaged foods tend to contain high amounts of sugar, carbohydrates and other nasty ingredients that aren’t healthy for your smile or body!
Visit your dentist regularly.
Professional dental care is another highly important factor in having optimal oral health. We recommend patients visit us at least twice a year for routine, preventive care.
