How to Spring Clean Your Dental Health Routine

The spring is when many of us will clean our homes, refresh wardrobes and generally think about spring and summer activities. It’s also a great time of year to think about spring cleaning your oral health routine and which will help you maintain an attractive and healthy mouth.

Start with a Professional Dental Cleaning

If it’s been a while since your last checkup or dental cleaning, this is a great place to start. Book an appointment with us here at Dr Smile, and we can evaluate your teeth and gums and will clean your teeth thoroughly. We can also give you lots of advice on how to improve your brushing and flossing routine at home.

Refreshing Your Brushing Routine

It’s crucial to brush your teeth at least twice a day to remove plaque bacteria and food debris. Make sure you brush your teeth for at least two minutes, and electric toothbrushes usually have built-in timers. Otherwise, treat yourself to a small timer to keep in the bathroom.

Get to Grips with Flossing

Flossing is essential for strong and healthy gums, getting in between teeth where your toothbrush cannot reach. If you don’t floss regularly, your risk of gum disease is greatly increased. Not sure how to floss properly? Ask us how and we will be delighted to help you.
