Healthy Lifestyles For Healthy Lifesmiles

Farmington dentist teeth whitening

Dental health and a great smile depend on more than simply brushing regularly. In this post from Sundance Dental & Orthodontics, we present a quick refresher on important lifestyle practices that affect oral health.

You are probably familiar with most of these recommendations, but it helps to get a reminder once in a while. We encourage all of our patients to maintain a lifestyle that promotes dental health as well as overall physical health. After all, the two are inseparable.

DO:

  • Eat a nutritious diet.
  • Eat calcium-rich dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt to neutralize acids that attack enamel.
  • Brush gently but meticulously at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Make sure you clean thoroughly between teeth with dental floss or interdental cleaners such as flossing picks.
  • Get your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year.
  • Have a dental examination twice yearly.

DON’T:

  • Eat a sugar frequently. Sugar triggers the production of cavity-causing acids that weaken enamel.
  • Snack throughout the day. This speeds up plaque production and subjects the teeth to constant bombardment with acids.
  • Chew on ice.
  • Use your teeth as tools. Ever!
  • Drink energy drinks.
  • Get oral piercings.
  • Ignore tooth pain or sensitivity.
