5 Steps to a Healthy Smile
Visit your dentist regularly for preventative checkups and cleanings. Your dentist is trained to see the hidden problems you can’t.
Floss your teeth once everyday. Dental floss reaches many areas that your toothbrush can’t.
It’s important to eat a well-balanced diet and avoid excessive snacking between meals – especially sticky, sweet things like candy.
Keep an eye on your gums for signs of gum disease. Puffy, red or tender gums, gums that bleed or persistent bad breath are signs that you need to see your dentist right away.
Brush your teeth carefully at least once a day. Remember, a thorough job takes 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.
