Your smile can affect your appearance. In fact, if you don’t take good care of it, it can bring a negative effect over your entire being. So, if you want to maintain your good look, it’s important to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.

Keep up on oral hygiene. This means you need to brush your teeth every morning and night, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth daily. Brushing should take about 2 minutes per session; flossing should take 2-3 minutes per session. These things can help you maintain a clean, healthy, and strong smile as well as help you prevent dental emergencies such as tooth decay and gum disease. Dental issues such as these oftentimes result in shriveled gums, discolored teeth, and even lost teeth. So, make sure to properly clean your smile.

Also, visit 19th Avenue Dental every six months. The professional dental cleanings and exams provided during these appointments can also help you maintain a healthy and attractive smile. We will help make sure your daily oral hygiene habits are working well, and provide the best treatment available to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. During your appointments, we can also give you treatments to strengthen your teeth and beautify your smile.

Make sure to keep a healthy diet, as the food you eat directly impacts your oral health. Eat foods that are nutrient-dense, and include the recommended daily requirement of calcium and phosphorus–two nutrients that help strengthen teeth.
