Are you ever worried you’ll suffer a poor oral health and a decayed and injured smile? If so, there is no need to worry because there are things you can do to avoid just that. In fact, if you use our tips and recommendations, there is a chance you can maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime.

Our first tip is to brush and floss regularly. It’s important to brush every morning and every night and floss before bed. You can also rinse with beneficial mouthwash daily. Doing these things can clean your teeth and gums and help you protect your smile from tooth decay and gum disease, which are issues created by the white, sticky plaque that clings to your teeth on a regular basis.

Our second tip is to visit Dr. Naman B. Patel every six months. This is important because your brushing, flossing, and rinsing techniques can’t completely remove the tartar from your teeth. The treatments provided at your dental checkups can help you remove that toxic substance and keep your oral health in tip-top shape.

Our third tip is to care for your smile by having a balanced diet and protecting your smile when necessary. Having a balanced diet means limiting sugar consumption as much as possible and eating tooth-healthy foods. Those foods are fruit, vegetables, and dairy products. Protecting your smile means to wear a mouthguard when you play high-contact sports and activities.
