Posted .

You deserve a top-notch oral health as an adult. This can give you the strong and healthy teeth and gums you need to have the best smile possible. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to help yourself achieve that optimum health goal, and they’re not as tough as you might think. Our dentists, Drs. Dickey and Conley, are happy to tell you all about them. Those things are:

-Clean your smile regularly (It’s vital to brush every morning and night and floss and rinse daily.)

-Visit your dentists often (It’s vital to attend your professional dental cleaning appointments every six months.)

-Have a healthy and balanced diet (It’s best to consume tooth-healthy foods and drinks and avoid products that can harm your teeth, like sugary and acidic foods and drinks.)

-Avoid tobacco use (Tobacco can destroy the smile.)

-Use the right oral hygiene products (It’s recommended to use tools that have been approved by the American Dental Association. This stamp of approval proves that the products are safe to use.)

-Protect your smile with a mouthguard (A mouthguard can help you prevent oral injuries when you participate in high-contact activities.)

-Align your teeth if you have smile misalignments (Orthodontic treatment can help you eliminate areas of the smile that are tough to clean, collect bacteria, and promote dental problems.)
