A clean mouth is a healthy mouth! But in the hustle and bustle of every day, it can be a challenge to focus on our teeth and gums. Fortunately, there are ways you can keep your mouth its healthiest throughout the day – without taking too much time!

Keep your tools handy
It is wise to keep a travel toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss with you throughout the day, whether at your desk or in your purse or briefcase. Having your dental tools handy lets you brush and floss after work lunches or other engagements so that your mouth can stay healthy and fresh at all times. If you are unable to do this, at the very least, rinse your mouth with water after eating to wash away food and debris that can get lodged between teeth.
Consume nutritious foods
Believe it or not, a healthy diet can go a long way in enhancing your oral health, just as it does for your body. So, fill up on plenty of fruits and veggies as well as get a proper intake of water each day. Your mouth will thank you!
Follow the suggestions
And, of course, be sure to brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss at least once a day to ensure your teeth are clean and free of bacteria. And don’t forget to brush your tongue or use a tongue scraper to remove bacteria where it can breed.
Plus, it should go without saying, but never skip your dental check-up with us! A professional cleaning and exam can help deter issues before they occur.
