Do you wish you had a strong and healthy smile? If so, then you need to clean and care for your teeth and gums regularly. This means you need to keep up on oral hygiene and visit your dentist, Dr. Scott R. Adishian, every six months. These things are very important when achieving a top-notch oral health. There are other things you can do each day to help your smile. Those things are:
-Chew gum: Chewing gum after each meal helps you produce saliva. This might not seem important, but it is. Saliva helps wash away the bacteria and food particles in your mouth, which can help you avoid dental issues like enamel erosion and cavities.
-Eat tooth-healthy foods: Many foods, like dairy products, can help neutralize the acid in your mouth. This can help you prevent enamel erosion when you eat or drink acidic products. This is helpful because acid attacks and wears down the enamel and makes it vulnerable to tooth decay and tooth cracks.
-Pack your toothbrush: Keep your toothbrush with you throughout the day and try to brush after lunch. This can help you clean your teeth after your meal and can help you avoid promoting dental problems.
