Do you want to keep your smile in tip-top shape? If so, it’s important that you try to prevent dental issues as much as possible. However, that might be difficult if you’re not sure how to do so. So, to help you, our Concept Dental team recommends that you do the following things:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: Make sure you clean your smile each and every day by brushing twice and flossing and rinsing once. You can brush every morning and every night and immediately floss and rinse after one of your brushing techniques. When you clean your teeth, it’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, floss that is easy to use, and antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. Doing these things will help you prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

-Wear a mouthguard: To prevent tooth injuries, like cracking or chipping a tooth or knocking a tooth out of place, you should wear a mouthguard when you participate in contact sports. Mouthguards are beneficial appliances that can protect your teeth when elbows, knees, sports balls, and other hard objects hit them.

-Visit your dentist: It’s very important that you visit Dr. Szilard Zombor every six months for a professional dental cleaning and exam. This appointment will help you in many ways, especially because the treatment involved is the only treatment that will completely eliminate plaque and tartar from your smile, reducing your chances of having gum disease. It’s also a great opportunity to take advantage of a professional fluoride treatment. The fluoride will seep into your tooth enamel and make your teeth strong enough to fight tooth decay and other dental issues.

Doing these things will help you have a pristine smile and oral health.
