As the fall and winter holidays fast approach, is your oral health care up to speed? Are you doing enough to keep your teeth safe and secure from the risks and hazards present in our world? Are you participating in any high-risk activities that can damage your smile, or partake in bad habits that can destroy your teeth and gums? Every aspect of your life does not have to be perfect, but there are many things you can do to improve your smile.

Always make sure you’re using effective oral health care utensils. Make sure your toothbrush can effectively clean your mouth as intended. Replace your brush every 3 to 4 months or earlier to ensure your brushing habits can function effectively. Always select the toothbrush that has soft bristles that won’t cause dental abrasion. Furthermore, never brush your teeth after meals. Instead, supplement your health care with mouthwash and chewing gum during this time.

Never use someone else’s toothbrush, and never share your toothbrush with others. Furthermore, store your toothbrush in an area where it will not come into contact with other toothbrushes. Beyond brushing your teeth, upgrades can be implemented into your oral health care repertoire including via water flossers and electric toothbrushes. In addition, visit your dentist for routine examinations and bi-annual professional cleanings to fully clean your mouth and potentially hit areas that you may have missed.
