July 20, 2016 by Dr. Emanuel Blog, Dental News


Sustaining a quality smile and great overall mouth health all comes down to a few habits. They aren’t complicated or expensive, so there is no excuse not the follow them. Here are the 4 habits you should pick up at an early stage of your life and maintain into the latter years:

  1. Brush twice per day: the importance of brushing your teeth twice per day cannot be underestimated. It lays the foundations for your tooth health. Learn how to brush teeth from a dentist, buy the right toothpaste/brush and make it part of your daily routine.
  2. Floss once a day: flossing is essential for removing the junk from your mouth that brushing cannot. This activity is vital for preventing gum disease, tooth decay, and stained teeth.
  3. Regular dental check-ups: to increase the odds of your dentist spotting mouth trouble down the line, visiting them on a regular basis is necessary. Find a dentist you are comfortable with and trust, and setup a visitation schedule for the year ahead.
  4. Low sugar diet: avoiding a sugary diet eases the burden on your teeth and overall mouth health. Making simple switches in your diet can help prevent mouth diseases that brushing/flossing could not help avoid.
