Spring Cleaning your Dental Routine!

Spring is a time for renewal and fresh starts. We declutter our homes, freshen up our wardrobes, and embrace the warm sunshine. But what about your oral hygiene routine? Just like your home, your smile can benefit from a spring cleaning too!

Here are some tips to refresh your oral hygiene routine and bring a sparkling shine to your smile:

Upgrade Your Tools:

  • Brush It Up: Is your toothbrush looking a little worse for wear? Frayed bristles are less effective at removing plaque. Treat yourself to a new toothbrush! Consider switching to an electric toothbrush, which studies have shown can be more effective at removing plaque and improving gum health.
  • Floss Like a Boss: Flossing is an essential step in removing plaque and food particles from between teeth. But are you flossing effectively? Traditional floss can be tricky to use. Explore alternative options like floss picks, water flossers, or interdental brushes to find what works best for you.

Technique Makes Perfect:

  • Brushing Basics: Don't just scrub back and forth! Use a gentle, circular motion, brushing the surfaces of each tooth for two seconds. Don't forget the backs of your teeth and your tongue! Aim for two minutes of brushing, twice a day.
  • Flossing Finesse: Instead of sawing back and forth, gently curve the floss around each tooth to remove plaque and food particles.

Extra Touches for a Sparkling Smile:

  • Tongue Power: Your tongue harbors bacteria too! Use a gentle tongue scraper or the back of your toothbrush to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.
  • Don't Forget the Rinse: Mouthwash can help kill bacteria and freshen breath, but it's not a substitute for brushing and flossing. Choose a mouthwash that doesn't contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth.
