Are you someone who wishes for a healthy mouth and smile? If so, you’re not alone. Many desire to prevent dental issues and keep their oral health in tip-top shape. Fortunately, there are things you can do regularly to maintain a strong smile and oral health for a lifetime.

First, keep up on oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. You can also rinse with beneficial mouthwash daily. Doing these things can help you protect your smile from tooth decay that results from the white, sticky plaque that clings to your teeth daily.

Second, visit your dentist twice a year. This is important because the treatments offered at your dental checkups can help you remove tartar (a toxic substance) from your smile and keep your oral health in the best shape possible.

Third, care for your smile by having a healthy diet. Having a healthy diet means limiting sugar as much as possible and eating tooth-healthy foods. The foods we recommend eating are fruit, vegetables, and dairy products.

If you do these things, you’ll be on your way toward your dream smile and oral health in West Seneca, New York. To learn more, please don’t be afraid to call Tammy Perison, DDS Family and Cosmetic Dental Care at 716-674-5256. Our dental team will be excited to help you!
