To make sure your mouth is functioning effectively, always look for ways to improve your oral health care. Not only do you need to make sure that you’re keeping your teeth safe from oral accidents and injuries but beware of microscopic damage that can occur due to plaque buildup.

Plaque buildup is an ingredient in your mouth that lies on your teeth and leaves you susceptible to various forms of dental damage. Plaque consists of bacteria and food debris that is often left behind due to poor oral hygiene habits or an unhealthy diet. To keep your smile safe, always make sure to rinse out your mouth after eating with either mouthwash or reliable chewing gum alternative. Furthermore, make sure you’re brushing your teeth twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and flossing between your teeth in areas that your brush cannot reach. For additional help with the oral health care, visit our dentist and speak with him about product recommendations and suggestions and to schedule a biannual professional cleaning.
