Guide to Healthy, Pearly Whites
It’s not easy to find the time to brush our teeth, but it is necessary in order to have a healthy smile. Brush twice a day – morning and night with an ADA approved toothpaste. This way, you can prevent plaque build-up and bad breath.
Don’t forget your tongue! Brush it too to keep food particles from getting trapped underneath the surface, which cause discoloration over time.
If your teeth are crooked wear Braces Haven. Protruding teeth can be a symptom of an underlying issue for your doctor.
If you have chipped or broken a tooth, call Braces Haven immediately , so that we may take x-rays and determine if the damage is severe enough to require a crown. Crowns are made of porcelain and metal materials which will perfectly match the color of your smile – making it look as beautiful as ever!
Floss when you think about it – there is no hard rule on when or how often to floss, but try to make sure that you do so at least once a day for healthy teeth in between brushing sessions. Flossing removes any tiny bits of leftover food, keeping them away from gums where they could develop into trouble spots later on down the road! It’s helpful if you have an electronic toothbrush with built-in timers that notify you every 30 seconds indicating when it’s time to move onto brushing another section of your mouth.
Visit the dentist every six months to get a teeth cleaning and check-up. This is crucial for preventing cavities, gum disease, tooth loss, or any other cavity causing problems that could lead to pain! By going twice a year for cleanings with fluoride treatment included you can significantly lower your chances of these issues happening at all. Dental care isn’t as expensive as one might think because there are many ways to find affordable dentists in your area including through state programs such as Medicaid.
Drink water throughout the day so that you don’t get dehydrated or develop dry mouth which can lead to plaque buildup on teeth.
