Are you an overachiever? If so, would you like to know what you can do to go above and beyond for your smile? Dr. Jason Brown and our dental team will be more than happy to help you! There are things you can do in addition to brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist to help your smile stay healthy and strong.

First, brush your teeth after each meal and snack throughout the day, even if you’re at work, school, or home. If you do so, your teeth and gums will remain clean and threat free and it can help you avoid having an embarrassing food-filled smile!

Second, wear a mouthguard while you play intense and high-contact sports and activities. We recommend this because a hard object can hit your mouth and cause an oral injury, like a knocked-out or chipped tooth. If you wear a mouthguard, your smile can remain protected and safe.

Third, don’t forget to include rinsing in your oral hygiene routine. Feel free to rinse after you’ve brushed and flossed. This will help you complete the cleaning job. As you rinse, follow the instructions on the bottle and use a product that can benefit your smile.
