Don’t Fall Victim to Bad Oral Hygiene

Posted .

It’s easy to have a lapse in memory and begin to slack on your oral health, but at the end of every day, it is important to ensure you are back on track for a healthy smile that, with proper care and risk-control, can last a lifetime. Don’t fall victim to bad oral hygiene. Implement the following tips and tactics into your daily routine:

– Use oral health care products after eating, such as sugarless gum, mouth cleanser, or dental floss.
– Protect your teeth and gums from damage by using safety gear when relevant, such as mouth guards, facemasks, and head gear.
– Visit Miller Family Dental for your regularly scheduled professional cleanings and oral examinations.
– Avoid products or activities which can be destructive to your teeth, such as smoking or chewing tobacco, recreational drugs, and sugary foods and drinks.
– Practice optimum oral heath by brushing twice and flossing once daily.
– Try to avoid cosmetic add-ons to your mouth such as mouth jewelry and lip rings, as they can easily crack, chip, or damage your teeth.
– Try to limit food to meals only, avoiding snack time in between mealtime.
