Daily Ways to Protect Your Teeth!

It’s nice to have a smile with pretty white teeth, but it does take some daily effort.

Brush two times a day for two minutes

Brush your teeth and tongue with a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove any bacteria and plaque build-up before it hardens and becomes tartar.

Don’t over-brush – Brushing too much more than this can begin to wear down the enamel.

Make sure you floss every day – Flossing helps get rid of particles your toothbrush isn’t able to reach.

Brush & floss in any order – A common question is which should be done first, but according to the American Dental Association, it doesn’t matter as long as both are done daily.

Avoid soda – Both sugary soda and diet soda can negatively impact your teeth and gums, as the acid starts to attack the teeth. “Once acid eats away at the enamel, it goes on to create cavities, leaves stains on the tooth surface, and erodes the inside structure of the tooth.”

Replace your toothbrush- Replacing your toothbrush every three to four months helps with effective cleaning of teeth. Worn and frayed down bristles won’t be able to remove plaque and clean efficiently.
