Did you know there are little things you can do each day to improve the health of your smile? Well, it’s true. In addition to keeping up on oral hygiene and visiting your dentist, Dr. Tim Garofolo, every six months, there are tricks you can use to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape. Our dental team wants you to have the successful oral health you deserve, so we’re happy to tell you all about them. Those tricks are:

-Chew gum: If you chew gum regularly, it can increase your saliva production. This is very helpful because saliva can wash the teeth and gums from bacteria and food particles. So, try to chew gum after each meal and snack.

-Eat tooth-healthy foods: There are foods available that can help neutralize the acid in the mouth, like dairy products. This is very beneficial because acid can severely harm the teeth. It attacks and wears down the enamel and makes it weak and vulnerable to cavities.

-Pack your toothbrush: If you keep your toothbrush with you, you can brush throughout the day. This can help you maintain a clean and healthy smile and it can even help you avoid having embarrassing food-stuck-in-the-smile moments.
