It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Every year, 100 million of us don’t visit our dentist. ONE HUNDRED MILLION. That is NOT a statistic that you should want to be a part of. Waiting until you are in pain or a tooth has broken is not a preventative plan for your oral health and is not what we want for our patients. From the time you get your first tooth or turn one year old, you should make it a habit to visit your dentist twice a year. Visiting your dentist twice a year allows us to check on your gum and tooth health and to see how your home care and lifestyle habits are affecting your teeth. Ideally, it gives us the opportunity to help you before there is major problem or painful area in your mouth.
So, other than visiting a dentist twice a year, what can you do to take care of your oral health and keep on Sharing Smiles? Well, the answer is as easy as one, two, three!
ONE: Floss your teeth ONCE a day! Whether you prefer to floss in the morning or before bed, make sure you clean between your teeth once a day!
TWO: Brush TWO times per day! You should brush your teeth for TWO minutes both morning and night. Removing the buildup from the day is important to make sure you don’t develop plaque or tarter, which can lead to damage to both your teeth and gums.
THREE: Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months and if you get sick, replace it earlier!
With these simple steps, you can be sure that you are taking the proper precautionary measures at home to care for your teeth and develop habits that will last a lifetime. Be the ONE in a 100 million and schedule your dental appointment today to ensure that your teeth will last a lifetime also!
