Spring is here and for many, this is the time to thoroughly clean your homes of dust and cobwebs, get rid of clutter and let a breath of fresh air into your life. But what about your smile?
Visiting the dentist at the start of spring is a great way to start your spring cleaning on the right foot. While freshening up your home, don’t forget to take care of your body. Just like your home, you should have your mouth thoroughly cleaned. Until then, here are some tips for taking care of your teeth.
Replace Your Toothbrush: Your toothbrush should only last for three months before being thrown away. Spring is the perfect time to say, “out with the old and in with the new”. If the bristles are missing or frayed, you need a new brush.
Take Stock of Your Bathroom: Once you have a new brush, check how much toothpaste, mouthwash, and floss you have. This would be a good chance to try a new product, whether it’s a different brand of floss or flavor of mouthwash. These small changes can revitalize your bathroom habits and keep you up-to-date with your oral hygiene.
Brush and Floss Regularly: If you sometimes rush out the door before brushing in the morning, now is the time to get your dental health habits in line. Brushing and flossing now will save you from restorative dental care later. Most of our patients find it easier to floss at night as part of their bedtime routine.
Visit the Dentist: Biannual checkups and cleanings allow us to keep tabs on changes in your teeth and gums. While you may not notice a change in your dental health, we will. This allows us to start treatments to make your mouth healthy again.
Whitening and Brightening: Spring is the time to gain the smile you’ve always wanted. We offer whitening services that can make your teeth over in a single visit. Why wait months to see results with a home whitening kit? Our experts will make your smile brighter than ever without the mess!
Prevent Poor Oral Hygiene Risks: Dental and oral disease prevention is possible with proper cleanings and checkups. An oral cancer screening this spring may help detect early warning signs and allow for preventative treatment to begin.
