Your smile routinely depends on your oral health care. Although your dentist can provide you with routine restoration treatments and professional cleanings as needed, the day-to-day chores are really the bulk of your oral health care. Lastly, it is up to you to make sure your teeth and gums are kept safe by your lifestyle choices and your cleaning habits.

Always avoid unhealthy lifestyle choices that can easily damage your smile. This is more than just avoiding unhealthy products such as smoking tobacco or using drugs. You also need to make sure that any unhealthy habits involved with your eating routines are adjusted as well. You even need to limit the intake of products that can easily lead to plaque formation. This includes sugars and starches.

Another key aspect of your oral health care is through your cleaning routines. You’ll need to make sure that you’re adequately cleaning your mouth every day. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing once a day and using additional cleaning tools as needed. Due to the risks associated with brushing immediately after eating, you should try using a nonabrasive product such as mouthwash or sugarless chewing gum. To ensure your oral health care is progressing as intended, visit your dentist for routine checkups.
