It feels like years since you’ve been here. But you’re finally back! One “fun” part of spring is the spring-cleaning. So why not spring clean your dental routine, too? It’s time for your floss, toothpaste, and toothbrush to come together for a fresh mouth. Your teeth will love the attention.
Follow these 4 easy tips for a fresh smile:
1. Replace your toothbrush every 3 months.
As the bristles wear down, they become less effective in reaching the tough spots in your mouth that need to be cleaned.
2. Schedule a check-up with your dentist.
All your teeth need is a little love from a dental cleaning. This will give your dentist a chance to take a close look at your mouth to ensure that you don’t have any undetected problems.
3. Stay hydrated.
Not only does water help your digestive system, it also keeps your teeth healthy. Choose fluoridated tap water in place of bottled water to give your teeth decay-fighting superpowers.
4. Say goodbye to bad breath once and for all.
Bad breath can be an early sign of gum disease. Brush and floss regularly to prevent the onset of periodontal disease.
Stick to your new spring-cleaning dental routine, and your tooth troubles will seem far away.
