Having a healthy smile is vital to your oral care. By keeping up with your oral care with simple habits, you can avoid serious oral health problems for years to come. Oral health is not something to take lightly. Luckily, there are a few simple habits or steps you can take to keep your smile healthy all year long.

Here at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Auburn Hills, Michigan, we care about your oral health and smile. That is why we have put this list of information together, so you can make positive oral health care habits and keep your teeth clean and fresh all year long. This list includes:

1. Brush your teeth twice a day, for two minutes a day. By keeping your teeth brushed and clean, you can prevent bacteria, plaque, and tartar from building up and giving you serious oral health problems.
2. Floss your teeth at least once a day. Food particles, plaque, bacteria, and even tartar can build in the hard-to-reach places of your smile between your teeth and along the gumline. That is why it is vital to use floss to remove these elements.
3. Use an effective mouthwash. Mouthwash plays an important role in ridding your mouth of bacteria your toothbrush and floss cannot reach.
4. Visit your dentist, Dr. Michael Tobola at least twice a year. If you keep up with your dental checkups, there is a better chance of stopping a serious problem early before serious risks can apply. Our professional staff can help you reverse any oral health care issue and treat any conditions you may have.

As you can see, these are simple steps and if turned into habits, you can win the fight against negative oral health. If you still have questions about your oral health, please call us today at 248-852-8766. Our professional and friendly staff is happy to keep your smile healthy and bright.
