By practicing a few simple oral health habits, you will go a long way toward keeping your healthy smile. Think of good oral health habits as part of an overall healthy lifestyle. Always be sure to get regular preventive care from your dentist.
Visit your dentist for regular, preventive check-ups two times a year or more, depending on what your dentist tells you.
Brush your teeth with a soft brush at least two times a day
Floss every day between each of your teeth
Brush your tongue to cut down on germs and not have bad breath
If you do not have water with fluoride, check with your dentist about the benefit of toothpaste and rinses with fluoride
Avoid eating lots of hard foods and sweets such as sodas and candy
