5 Steps to a Healthy Smile

May 24, 2011

Dont Wait Until It’s Too Late.

Visit your dentist regularly for preventative checkups and cleanings. Your dentist is trained to see the hidden problems you can’t.

Floss is the Boss

Floss your teeth once everyday. Dental floss reaches many areas that your toothbrush can’t.

Eat and Drink, But Be Sure to Think

It’s important to eat a well-balanced diet and avoid excessive snacking between meals – especially sticky, sweet things like candy.

Be Good to Those Gums

Keep an eye on your gums for signs of gum disease. Puffy, red or tender gums, gums that bleed or persistent bad breath are signs that you need to see your dentist right away.

It Takes a While to Brush Your Smile

Brush your teeth carefully at least once a day. Remember, a thorough job takes 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.
