5 things to do for dental health

5-dental-health-tipsWith busy, hectic lives, our oral health sometimes falls by the wayside. Here are 5 easy things you can to do to keep your mouth healthy:

  1. Brush your teeth for two minutes, two times a day.
  2. Drink water. Not only does it hydrate you, it cleans bacteria from your teeth.
  3. Avoid sugary foods. Energy drinks, soda and sticky candy do damage to the surface of your teeth and increase the risk of cavities.
  4. Stop smoking. Smoking creates an ideal environment for bacteria that can cause gum infection and bone loss.
  5. Visit your dentist! Remember to come see us twice a year for cleanings and to catch any problems that DO show up, early!
