Your smile is one of your greatest attributes. Your smile lets people know that you are happy, that you care about them, and that you are glad to see them. Your smile can brighten someone’s day, and it can even help you land a promotion at work. All in all, your smile can make your life better! But that can only happen if you are taking an active role in your oral health.
Just as your home needs maintenance and plants need constant care to be valuable and healthy, just as your body needs exercise and a healthy diet – your smile needs attention every day. A little daily TLC can help promote optimal health care; it merely requires the dedication to do it.
- Floss your teeth every day. Most people skip this step in their oral hygiene routine, but those who are committed to a healthy smile do not. Flossing is actually the most beneficial thing you can do to protect your teeth and gums. Dental floss scrapes away bacteria-laden plaque from the teeth that causes cavities, decay, and gum disease.
- Brush at least twice a day. Brushing your teeth helps to loosen and remove food particles from the teeth so that they do not hang around and rot. Brushing also helps polish your teeth, and using a flavored toothpaste will help freshen your breath. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day to keep your smile its healthiest.
- Make regular dental visits a priority. It is vital that you visit the dentist on a regular basis. Your dentist knows the ins and outs of your smile – literally. Not only can regular dental cleanings remove damaging plaque that will still build up even with good oral hygiene, but regular dental visits give your dentist a baseline for your oral health. With regular appointments, your dentist will be the first to notice if anything troublesome has arisen since your last visit and will be able to treat it quickly before it becomes a severe concern.
