If you want a strong and successful oral health, then you need to keep up on oral hygiene (brush twice a day and floss and rinse daily) and visit your dentists, Dr. Lyndel Stripling and Dr. Shawn Nemovi, every six months for a checkup. There are also little tricks you can use to keep your smile in the best shape possible. Our dental team is happy to share those tricks with you today. They are:

-Chew gum: Chewing gum can help you prevent cavities, gum disease and other dental issues. This is because it produces saliva when you chew it. When you produce saliva, you wash the problem-causing bacteria in your mouth away. So, make sure to chew sugar-free gum regularly, like after every meal.

-Kiss more: This might seem crazy, but it’s true! Kissing can help you have a healthier smile because it, like chewing gum, can help you produce saliva. So, kiss as much as you can! But remember: only if it’s welcomed.

-Have a healthy and active lifestyle: Having a healthy lifestyle by eating healthy foods can help your smile because healthy foods help the teeth remain healthy and strong. Having an active life can help you prevent clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth because exercise can help you feel less stressed.
