Having a strong and healthy smile is easier than you might think. In fact, there are a few things you need to do in order to achieve your smile goals. Dr. Thomas E. Wold strongly recommends keeping your teeth and gums in tip-top shape as much as possible so you can prevent dental issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and enamel erosion as well as have the top-notch oral health and smile you deserve.

To keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong, you need to first keep up on oral hygiene. This at-home care is very important. The care should include brushing twice a day and flossing and rinsing daily. These things can help you regularly remove harmful and threatening particles from your smile. As you clean your teeth and gums, please use oral hygiene tools that have been approved by the American Dental Association.

You also need to visit our dental office every six months for your routine dental cleaning and exam. These appointments are vital for your oral health because they provide treatments that can help your smile more than your oral hygiene routine can. In fact, it can completely clean your smile and even strengthen your teeth.

The last thing you need to do is have a diet that is tooth friendly. This means you need to avoid tooth-harming products, like sugary and acidic foods and drinks, and stick to having tooth-healthy products, like fruits, vegetables, daily products, and water.
