If you want a top-notch smile, then the new year is a perfect time to set some goals to help your teeth and gums! The more you care for your smile, the better chance you’ll have of having the strong and successful oral health you deserve. Our doctor, Dr. Jason Brown, encourages you to make the following goals:

-Use the right oral hygiene tools: It’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, and antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. When it comes to floss, feel free to use the product you prefer. No matter which oral hygiene tool you use, make sure it has been approved by the American Dental Association.

-Visit your dentist regularly: Your dental checkups are vital for a successful oral health. This is because they remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gumline, strengthen your smile, prevent dental problems, and more. Make sure to attend your checkups every six months.

-Properly clean your smile each day: Make sure to use the right brushing, flossing, and rinsing techniques to ensure a proper cleaning job.
