Spring is here, and that means spring cleaning! And while you’re at it, why not spring clean your teeth? It’s a great time re-vamp your oral hygiene routine and keep that smile healthy for the upcoming warm months. Here are a few things you can do:
Check Your Routine: The most important part of your dental health, your daily routine should be consistent and effective. Get in the habit of bushing twice daily for 2 minutes each time, flossing daily and, when needed, using mouthwash to rinse.
New Season, New Tools: Are you replacing your toothbrush as often as you should? Now is a great time to do it! And while you’re at it, why not pick up some new floss to ensure that you’re stocked up? Even trying out a new toothpaste might make you more likely to stick to your routine.
Get Hydrated: Water isn’t just important for your body, it’s important for your overall oral health. Especially as the weather gets warmer, your mouth can get drier – since it’s a breeding ground for bacteria, keeping your mouth rinsed and hydrated goes a long way to optimal dental health.
