That is why our team here at Dental Implant and Aesthetic Specialists of Atlanta in Decatur, Georgia, is happy to give you the tips and information you need to keep your oral health in positive tip-top shape this Thanksgiving season.
These tips include:
-Brush your teeth for two minutes two times a day: By brushing your teeth, you are removing any residue that may be stuck on your teeth keeping your gums and teeth healthier.
-Floss your teeth each day: By flossing your teeth, you are removing plaque and bad bacteria wedged between your teeth and deep along the gumline.
-Visit your dentist regularly: Professional cleanings and oral health examinations are vital to removing the tartar and other bacteria from your mouth. These checks also include oral cancer screenings and other health checks to help prevent serious conditions.
-Eat healthy and nutritious food: Having a healthy diet will help keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong.
-Change your toothbrush regularly: Over time, as you brush your teeth bacteria may begin to reside in your brush. Changing your brush every 3-4 moths or sooner if your bristles become worn and frayed will help keep bad bacteria from your mouth and give you a cleaner brush.
