You deserve top-notch teeth and gums that help you eat and smile with confidence. Did you know you can achieve the healthy smile you need this year? Well, it’s true! First, you should schedule an appointment with our doctor, Dr. David A. Browne, to see if any problems need to be treated. Then, you should make goals for your smile. Some goals you can set are:

-Use the right oral hygiene tools: It’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, and antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. When it comes to floss, feel free to use the product you prefer. No matter which oral hygiene tool you use, make sure it has been approved by the American Dental Association.

-Attend your six-month checkups: It’s important to get your teeth and gums cleaned and examined every six months. This is because the treatments provided can help you prevent major dental issues (like tooth decay and gum disease), can strengthen your smile, and more.

-Properly clean the teeth and gums: There is a right and wrong way to clean the smile. Make sure you use the right techniques, otherwise there is a chance you can cause more harm than good.
