How to Keep Your Smile in Great Shape

One accessory that never goes out of style is a gorgeous smile. You might think it’s inevitable that your teeth become worn down, break or discolour. It may come as a surprise that there are simple steps that you can take to make sure that your smile stays in tip-top shape.

Your Home Care Habits

Brushing. You should brush your teeth for a full two minutes. Concentrate on each individual tooth, brushing at an angle towards your gumlines. You should use only a soft-bristled toothbrush. Don’t forget to brush your tongue, which can be a harbour for bacteria to thrive.

Flossing. Floss once per day. Pick a time that usually works for you and try to stick with it. Your brush can’t reach between your teeth, so flossing is the only way to remove the plaque buildup there. You can do it with a floss pick, water flosser or traditional dental floss.
