How good is your oral health care? Would you say that your smile is being treated as best as possible? Although a minimal amount of effort is often required to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape, there are plenty of techniques and tips to employ to keep your smile at its best, including the following:

– Treat effects of halitosis, also known as bad breath, by brushing your tongue along with your teeth during your daily routines.
– Eliminate bad habits from your life that can damage your smile, such as chewing and smoking tobacco.
– Stay away from dangerous drugs and medications that may cause dry mouth symptoms or tooth decay.
– Receive regular checkups at your dentist and attend your bi-annual professional cleanings.
– Use additional cleaning utensils such as mouthwash and sugarless gum after eating to limit the risk of tooth decay and tooth enamel loss.
– Avoid snacking between meals, as this can increase your risk for tooth decay.
– Try to follow all instructions from your dentist for your oral health care.
– Regularly use safety equipment when playing contact sports or participating in activities that are risky for your oral health.
– Floss at least once daily and brush at least twice daily
– Focus on eating healthy meals from all five major foods groups in accordance with a healthy diet.
