If you’re interested in having a top-notch smile and oral health, then you need to care for your teeth, gums, and mouth regularly. That means you need to keep up on oral hygiene, visit your dentist regularly, and have a tooth-healthy diet. There are also little things you can do throughout the day, which are fun oral hygiene tricks. Dr. Jerard Wilson and our dental team are more than happy to tell you all about them.

-Keep a travel-sized toothbrush and toothpaste with you throughout the day so you can brush after each meal and snack. Just keep your oral hygiene tools in your purse, locker, gym bag, or backpack. Brushing regularly can help you clean your teeth and gums and even avoid a food-filled smile.

-Chew sugar-free gum after your meals and snacks to clean the mouth and prevent cavities. This does the job because chewing gum produces saliva, and saliva washes away bacteria.

-Drink water throughout the day to eliminate excess bacteria and food particles in your mouth. It’s also important to rinse your mouth with water after you have consumed a sugary or acidic food or drink. This can help you prevent tooth decay and enamel erosion.
