Spring is finally here! After a long Michigan winter along with a bitter battle with the flu and cold season it is time for the annual Spring Cleaning. So why not revamp our oral hygiene habits.
Here are a few tips to start off your dental Spring Cleaning just right!
1.) Begin to establish HEALTHY hygiene routines. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that people to brush their teeth for two minutes twice a day with a toothbrush that has soft bristles.* As part of this routine attempt to incorporate flossing to prevent periodontal disease. Make it a family affair.
2. Schedule the entire family for hygiene appointments. Keeping all members of the family on regular recall appointments allows for Dr. Ona and her dental team to evaluate and treat as needed, as well as prevent your teeth from developing cavities among any other oral health issues that may arise. These appointments also allow us to update your medical history and any information that may have change.
3. Replace toothbrushes: The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that people should replace their toothbrush every 3-4 months*. If you or a family member experienced an illness, replace the tooth brush as bacteria can live on the bristles. If the bristles have frayed before the designated time frame, please toss it.
2017 is still in the beginning stages and the team at Healthy Smile wants to motivate their patients to improve their quality of life and take care of your smile. We hope to see you, soon!
