How To Keep a Great Smile

Posted .

Your smile affects your appearance. If you don’t take good care of it, it can really bring you down. So, if you want to maintain your good look, it’s important to keep your teeth and gums in excellent condition.

Keep up on oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes. 2×2. Easy enough to remember, and the foundation of great oral health. Floss your teeth once every day; this should take 2-3 minutes per session. These things can help you maintain a clean, strong smile as well as help you prevent dental emergencies like tooth decay and gum disease. Dental emergencies such as these oftentimes result in shriveled gums, discolored teeth, and even lost teeth. Make sure to properly clean your smile.
