When you are ready to strengthen your smile, look for the most effective treatment plan and implement it as soon as possible. For additional help with your treatments and oral examinations, visit your dentist for routine examinations and professional cleanings when needed. You should focus on a healthy diet and follow a sound oral hygiene routine to keep your teeth and gums clean and safe.

Your smile depends a healthy diet. Constant snacking throughout the day can increase your risk of dental damage because it will increase the amount of time that your teeth are in contact with substances that lead to tooth decay and erosion. Although foods and drinks are often associated with dental damage, it is possible to enjoy foods and drinks that can restore your tooth enamel, including products such as cheeses, nuts and milk. These foods can all help strengthen your tooth enamel with their minerals calcium and phosphorus.

Are you aware of the risk that poor oral hygiene can pose to your smile? If you want a healthy and functioning smile, you will need to make sure you are using safe and effective tools, which includes a toothbrush and toothpastes that are nonabrasive and dental floss products that will not tear or fray when you use them. You may want to consider switching to easier-to-operate dental products as you age, including electric toothbrushes and water flossers. By following a proper oral hygiene and avoiding an unhealthy diet, you can help to lower your risk of dental failure as you get older.
