You deserve to have a strong and healthy smile for a lifetime. Now, we know what you’re thinking. There’s no such thing as having a perfectly healthy smile your whole life, right? Well, there is such thing! In fact, it’s definitely possible. There are certain things you can do to achieve that goal.

First, clean your smile regularly by brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and rinsing with beneficial mouthwash daily. Doing these things can clean your chompers and gums and help you protect your smile from tooth decay.

Second, visit Dr. Sandra L. Parker twice a year. This is important because your oral hygiene techniques can’t fully remove tartar from your teeth. The treatments offered at your dental cleanings can help you remove that toxic substance and plaque and keep your smile cavity free.

Third, care for your smile by protecting your teeth when necessary. This means you need to wear a mouthguard when you participate in high-contact sports and activities.

Fourth, have a balanced diet. This means you need to avoid eating sugary and acidic products. This is because sugar promotes cavity development and acid wears down the tooth enamel and encourages bacteria to attack. It’s best to eat tooth-healthy foods, like fruit, vegetables, and dairy products.

Doing these things can help you have the strong and healthy smile you deserve for a lifetime. To learn more about how to maintain a healthy smile in Anaheim, California, please call Sandra L.
