It’s easy to let your dental health slip through the cracks, especially during the busy, summer months. But neglecting oral hygiene now could mean serious health consequences for your teeth and gums, and the need for more extensive dental work down the road.
Fortunately, maintaining a healthy, dazzling smile doesn’t have to be difficult. We’ve provided five simple ways to keep your teeth healthy all year long.
1. Practice proper tooth brushing daily.
Tooth brushing is vital to maintaining good oral health and the best way to remove plaque build-up from the chewing surfaces of each tooth. Brush at least twice a day with a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste.
2. Don’t forget to floss.
Flossing is one of the most important steps you can take to prevent harmful tooth decay. Use floss daily to reach deep within the crevices of each tooth where a regular toothbrush can’t reach.
3. Follow a healthy, balanced diet.
Not only is eating a balanced diet great for your total body health, it’s also an important way to promote healthy teeth and gums. Limit snacks between meals and avoid sugary foods when possible. If you must enjoy a sweet or two, just make sure you brush immediately after.
4. Check your mouth regularly.
Routinely checking your mouth is an easy way to monitor your oral health. Always contact our office if you notice unusual sores or lumps that don’t go away within a few weeks.
5. Visit us at Beaumont Smile Center.
Finally, don’t put off visits to your Beaumont dentist. Routine check-ups and cleanings are fundamental to maintaining a healthy smile. Our dentists and staff can help you learn good oral hygiene techniques, and can help point out areas of your mouth that may require extra attention during brushing and flossing. A skilled dental professional can also identify any need for treatment at an early stage, preventing serious dental damage—and pain!
We’re all guilty of neglecting our dental health from time to time. The good news is that being diligent about your oral hygiene through proper brushing, flossing and routine dental checkups is the best way to prevent tooth decay and even reverse early gum disease. Beaumont Smile Center can help you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime!
