When we think about spring we often associate it with “spring cleaning”. It is the perfect season to clean your home, refresh your space and start new with healthy habits/lifestyle. However, aside from cleaning and decluttering your home, you can also put priority in cleaning up your oral health. Below are some tips to make spring cleaning your mouth easy this time of year as well as save your teeth from any future harm…
Floss. In addition to regular brushing, flossing your teeth a couple minutes a day allows you to deep clean your mouth and remove harmful bacteria. The bacteria filled debris can lead to infection and an unhealthy smile.
Replace dental equipment. Replacing and investing in a new toothbrush can allow you to get even more cleaning power in your mouth. Also, opting for an electric toothbrush can impact your cleaning routine positively, by removing debris efficiently and with less effort.
Brush your teeth. It might sound redundant, but making sure to brush your teeth multiple times a day will save your mouth in the long run. Don’t forget to remember your tongue, inside of your cheeks and the roof of your mouth when brushing, as these areas tend to house bad bacteria. Finish by rinsing your mouth with mouthwash to ensure good breath and a clean smile.
Check-ups. Having your dentist clean and inspect your mouth at least twice a year is vital to your oral health. Your dentist will not only clean your teeth, but check for any changes in your mouth, gum disease, cavities, etc. Your dentist can also seal your teeth, protecting them from any plaque, tartar and bacteria build-up.
