Tips for a Beautiful Smile, and Advice for When Tooth Pain Gets Ugly

Getting that Feel Good Smile

Everyone loves to wow with a fabulous smile. Want to improve your signature grin with the latest recommendations from the experts? It’s easy to do, here are a few tips to try:

First off, brush not once, but twice a day. Do not go to sleep without brushing. That last brushing of the day removes plaque and germs that don’t go to slumber when you do. Please don’t forget your tongue, it collects plaque as well. If you fear you might nod off before the nightly ritual, do it just a bit earlier in the evening to avoid missing the cleaning.

Can you guess another easy fix many people may not be using? It might surprise you that it is mouthwash. Mouthwash is more than a minty liquid to gargle, it helps greatly by re-mineralizing teeth and cutting down on acid in the mouth that can cause decay. It also helps reach hard to brush areas. Know that not all mouthwashes are created equal, and we would be happy to recommend the best for your individual needs. 

A third technique to good oral health is paying attention to the food and drink you are asking your teeth endure. When you can, avoid sugary drinks and foods, as these eventually convert into acid in your mouth, which can then erode tooth enamel which can lead to cavities. Avoiding smoking is also key, as smokers have twice the risk of gum disease as nonsmokers. 

Last, but never least, flossing is an essential component of removing bacteria from the mouth. It simply reaches areas your toothbrush cannot. If you dislike the type of floss you have, look for a new method, as there are a large variety of options on the market for tools to floss properly. We are always here to advise you on best practices, techniques and tools.
