3 Tips for a Healthier Smile

At Hermitage Dental Group, we’re committed to helping our patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles that will last a lifetime. Many times, our patients ask us for tips on how they can achieve a healthier smile easily, so we’re sharing our top three tips for a healthier smile below.

Daily Brush & Floss Your Teeth

This tip might sound straightforward but many people don’t follow the proper brushing technique and/or skip flossing altogether. We can’t stress how important it is to brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day (using small, gentle circles as you brush) and to thoroughly floss every day to remove bacteria and food particles from between your teeth and under the gumline. Doing so will work wonders for your smile.

Maintain a Tooth-Friendly Diet

Candy, pastries, cookies, alcohol, coffee, black tea, chips, white bread, and fruit juice can be damaging to your tooth enamel, which makes it easier to develop cavities and decay. Whenever possible, opt for water, whole fruits and vegetables that are high in fiber, and protein-rich foods to support a healthier smile.

Visit Your Dentist Twice a Year

Schedule twice yearly professional dental cleaning and examinations to make sure your teeth and gums remain healthy and to address any issues you may have experienced between appointments. Hermitage Dental Group offers extensive dental services, including preventive, cosmetic, restorative, and emergency treatments to suit the needs of all patients under one roof. We also offer dental sedation, sleep apnea treatment, and treatment for TMJ dysfunction.
