Tips and Activities

BRUSH TWICE A DAY


  • It is recommended to brush after every meal. If that’s not feasible then at least rinse your mouth out after eating. Brush at least twice a day, in the morning and especially before bed.

  • Use no more than a pea sized dab of toothpaste on the toothbrush.

FLOSS DAILY

  • Always remember to floss at least once a day, preferably at night. Did you know that up to 60% of your daily dental hygiene depends on flossing regularly!!!

USE THE PROPER EQUIPMENT

  • Use fluoride toothpaste and a soft bristle toothbrush that fits your mouth comfortably. Consider using an electric or battery-operated toothbrush, which can reduce plaque more effectively than a manual toothbrush.

KEEP YOUR EQUIPMENT CLEAN

  • Change your toothbrush at least 3 to 4 times a year. After being sick, replace your toothbrush!

  • Allow your toothbrush to air dry. Storing your toothbrush in a closed container can cause the growth of bacteria.

VISIT THE DENTIST

  • Regardless of age, everyone should visit the dentist every 6 months.

START CHILDREN EARLY

  • Despite great strides in decay prevention, one in four young children develop signs of tooth decay before they start school.

SEAL OFF TROUBLE

  • Thin protective coating (sealants) applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars) can significantly reduce cavities.

CLEAN YOUR TONGUE

  • Cleaning the surface of your tongue daily will reduce bacteria that causes bad breath.

RINSE OR CHEW GUM AFTER MEALS

  • In addition to brushing and flossing, rinsing your mouth with an antibacterial rinse will help maintain healthy teeth and gums.

  • Chewing sugar-free gum after a meal will increase saliva flow, which naturally washes away bacteria. Gum with Xylitol is especially beneficial in fighting cavities.

LIMIT SODAS, COFFEE, & ALCOHOL

  • Beverages containing additives, such as corn syrup and food dye, can make pearly white teeth appear dull and discolored.
