Tips to maintain a healthy and beautiful smile

Good oral health has a lot of physical benefits. Because it boosts your confidence, a healthy smile can also improve your career and relationships. Here are some helpful tips you can take to promote a great oral hygiene:

  1. Regular check-ups with your dentist: visiting your dentist at least twice a year helps keep your mouth healthy and prevent future dental health problems that may require extensive procedures. They can also detect certain medical conditions such as diabetes and cancer.
  2. Proper cleaning: brush your teeth twice a day to prevent bacteria buildup. Scrub your teeth, the outside and inside surfaces of your teeth, and lastly your tongue and the roof of your mouth. Pair with flossing and mouthwash every day.
  3. Beverage and food choices: drinking sodas and other drinks that have high levels of phosphorus can significantly decrease your teeth’s calcium levels. This may cause severe gum disease and tooth decay.

Aside from a good oral hygiene, paying a visit to a dental health care provider is important. If you are suffering from any tooth problems, Dr. Sid K. Steadman D.D.S. and his team can help you. Get in touch with us at (512) 259-3365 for more information.
