All You Need to Know About Caring for Your Smile for a Lifetime

Posted .

If you want a top-notch oral health and smile for a lifetime, then you need to care for your teeth, gums, and mouth regularly. This may not come to a surprise for you. Smile care is essential for the smile and oral health goals you desire. Fortunately, this can be an easy task if you just get in the habit of doing the following things:

-Brush your teeth twice a day (for 120 seconds each time).

-Floss your teeth at least once a day (more if you have braces).

-Visit your dentist regularly (your six-month checkups are vital for a top-notch smile).

-Limit your intake of sugary, starchy, and acidic foods and drinks.

-Have a healthy and balanced diet full of tooth-healthy foods and drinks.

-Protect your smile with a mouthguard while you’re playing sports or being active.

-Avoid piercing any part of your mouth.

-If you’re too busy to sit down for a full meal, choose to eat tooth-healthy snacks instead of sugary or starchy treats.
