It’s vital for your oral health to keep up on oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly. If you do these things, you’re on the right track toward a healthy smile. But do you ever wish you could go above and beyond for your chompers? If so, Dr. Malcolm J Boykin DDS and our dental team are thrilled to hear that! We have some tips for you that can help you go the extra mile for your smile.
Tip No. 1: Brush your teeth throughout the day, whether you’re at the office, school, or even just at home. If you brush after each meal and snack, your teeth and gums will remain clean and pristine. This can also help you avoid having an embarrassing food-filled smile!
Tip No. 2: Wear a mouthguard while you are active. It’s important to protect your smile while you participate in high-contact sports and activities because a hard ball, elbow, knee, or other object can hit your mouth and cause severe injury. If you wear a mouthguard, there is a chance your teeth and gums can remain healthy and strong.
Tip No. 3: Include rinsing in your oral hygiene routine. We recommend brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and rinsing your mouth daily. As you rinse, follow the instructions on the bottle and use a product that has been approved by the American Dental Association.
