Spring is here, and for most people, it’s time to give their home a fresh look. Curtains are cleaned, rugs are beaten, and work desks are arranged. As you put your home in order this spring, don’t forget about your smile!This season, we want you to be able to smile confidently without having to worry about the shade of your teeth, or bad smelling breath. Below are vital tips that will help keep your teeth clean, and guarantee you a better smile this spring!
1. Maintain a Healthy Diet
A healthy diet is crucial in maintaining your oral health. It is time to stock up on fruits and vegetables such as kale, broccoli, strawberries, and pineapples. Certain snacks such as cheese and nuts will also help promote good oral health! We recommend just being mindful of sugary foods and drinks, including sodas, juices, and desserts.
2. Regular Brushing and Flossing
Make sure to brush your teeth thoroughly at least twice a day, for two minutes each time. Additionally, you should floss at least once a day to get rid of plaque in areas where your toothbrush can’t reach. By flossing, you can help yourself keep gingivitis and tooth decay at bay.
While you’re doing your spring cleaning, keep in mind that your toothbrush should be replaced every 90 days! This is also a good opportunity to check the expiration dates on your toothpaste and mouthwash, especially if you buy in bulk.
3. Biannual Dental Examinations
Have you been skipping your biannual visits to the dentist? Spring is an excellent season to complete your first dental appointment of the year! We recommend having a routine checkup once every six months, and we’d be happy to pre book your next appointment for the fall.When you visit our Thornhill dental office, you will meet Dr. Groyeski and our dental team, who will conduct a thorough evaluation of your oral health.
