Spring is right around the corner, which means so is spring cleaning! As you spring clean your house, you should also spring clean your smile. Spring cleaning your smile can help you maintain strong and healthy teeth and gums. It can also reduce your chances of suffering dental issues this spring! So, our doctors, Dr. Nored and Dr. Gemp, encourage you to spring clean your smile by doing the following things:
-Get a professional dental cleaning: A professional dental cleaning is a great first step for spring cleaning the smile. Our dental team will deeply clean your teeth and gums and remove the plaque, tartar and other harmful substances from the teeth and gums. This can help you have a strong and healthy smile.
-Replace your toothbrush: If you have been using your toothbrush longer than three to four months or if the toothbrush bristles are frayed, it’s time to replace it. A new toothbrush can help you properly and effectively clean your smile.
-Clean your retainers and night guards: This is important because oral appliances tend to gather plaque, and plaque is very dangerous for the teeth and gums. So, it’s time to clean your retainers and night guards. You can do so by soaking them in denture cleaner or cleaning them with a toothbrush and soap.
