Smile Secrets: Tips For Maintaining Healthy Teeth And Gums

Today, we're spilling the beans on the secrets to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Our team at Dentistry On Sheppard in North York is about to unveil the tips that will keep your mouth feeling fresh, clean, and ready to dazzle the world!

Brush Like a Boss

Brushing your teeth is non-negotiable in the quest for a healthy smile. Grab your trusty toothbrush, a pea-sized amount of toothpaste (go for the minty fresh kind!) and get scrubbing! Make sure to brush for a solid two minutes, twice a day, and don't forget those hard-to-reach molars in the back.

Floss to Impress 

Flossing is the unsung hero of hygiene. It's like a ninja warrior sneaking into the spaces between your teeth and gums to defeat any lingering food particles and plaque. Floss at least once a day, and you'll be on your way to great oral health!

Be Besties with Mouthwash 

Mouthwash is like a refreshing spa treatment for your mouth. Swish it around for a minute or two after brushing and flossing to kill any leftover bacteria and leave your breath smelling fresh.

Say No to Sugars

We know, we know, sugar is oh-so-tempting. But those sneaky sugar monsters can wreak havoc on your teeth. Limit your sugary snacks and drinks and opt for tooth-friendly alternatives, such as crunchy fruits and veggies. Your smile will thank you!

H2O to the Rescue

Water is another unsung hero of oral health. Not only does it keep you hydrated, but it also helps wash away food particles and keeps your saliva flowing, which protects your teeth from acid. So, sip on that refreshing H2O throughout the day!

Show Some Love to Your Toothbrush

Your toothbrush works hard to keep your teeth clean, so return the favour! Rinse it thoroughly after each use, store it in an upright position to air dry, and replace it every three to four months. A happy toothbrush equals a happy smile.
