Do you want a strong, successful and healthy smile? If so, our dentists, Drs. Tobola, Grindling, and Grindling, strongly encourage you to do all you can to clean and care for your teeth and gums. This means you need to keep up on oral hygiene (by brushing twice a day and flossing and rinsing daily) and attend your dental checkups every six months. There are also quick tips you can use throughout the day that can help you reach your smile goals. Those quick tips are:

-Chew gum often: Little did you know, chewing gum can increase your saliva flow. When you increase your saliva flow, the saliva washes the teeth and gums and neutralizes the acid in the mouth. This can help you have a clean and healthy smile, so try to chew sugar-free gum after each time you eat.

-Sip on water throughout the day: If you sip on water, the water can wash your smile from food particles and bacteria. This can help you have a cleaner and stronger smile. It can also help you prevent dental issues, especially dry mouth, and it can help you have the fresh and pristine breath you deserve. So, keep a water bottle with you and sip on water throughout the day.

-Avoid tooth-damaging habits: There are many habits that can harm your teeth, like chewing on pens, pencils and ice as well as using your teeth as tools. It’s best to avoid these habits as much as possible to maintain the top-notch smile you need.
