Did you know there are things you can do other than keep up on oral hygiene and your regular dental checkups to achieve the top-notch oral health and smile you deserve? Well, it’s true. Our dentists, Drs. Tornow and DeLoach, call them quick smile care tips. If possible, use these tips regularly to reach the smile and oral health goals you desire. Those tips are:

-Chew gum often: Chewing gum increases your saliva flow, and whether you believe it or not, saliva can help your smile. This is because it washes the bacteria from your teeth and gums and it even neutralizes the acids in the mouth. So, please chew sugar-free gum when you get the chance.

-Sip on water throughout the day: If you sip on water, the water can wash your smile from food particles and bacteria. This can help you have a cleaner and stronger smile. It can also help you prevent dental issues, especially dry mouth, and it can help you have the fresh and pristine breath you deserve. So, keep a water bottle with you and sip on water throughout the day.

-Avoid tooth-damaging habits: Some habits, like chewing on your pens, pencils and nails as well as using your teeth as tools, can damage your teeth. It’s best to avoid those habits as much as possible to keep your smile in tip-top shape.
