Healthier-and-Whiter-Teeth-6-Tips-From-Your-Mayfield-Dentist

A brighter smile isn’t only possible in your dreams. With your commitment and help from your trusted dentist in Mayfield, healthier and whiter teeth can become yours.

At Mayfield Dental Care, we want to make your dream become your reality. Hence we have compiled six quick and easy steps you can follow to achieve a healthier and brighter smile. Take a look.

1. Don’t forget to brush and floss.

Don’t forget to brush your teeth at least twice a day or after every meal if possible. A good brushing should last at least two minutes. Floss at least once a day as well, preferably before your bedtime.

You can also give your teeth a treat by switching to an electronic toothbrush. It covers a larger area faster within the two minutes. Plus it has a timer!

2. Use a toothpaste with fluoride.

Marketers are fond of selling toothpastes, which promise a celebrity smile. But achieving that takes more than just a tube, whatever the tube might contain. The trick is not the toothpaste you use, but with keeping good oral hygiene habits.

Hence we recommend using a regular toothpaste or one that has fluoride content. Fluoride helps keep your teeth strong and healthy.

3. Rinse your mouth with a fluoride mouthwash.

Rinse your mouth with a fluoride mouthwash. Fluoride helps return lost tooth enamel and fight tooth decay by making teeth more resistant to acid attacks.

4. Schedule a regular dental check-up.

Keeping your teeth at their best isn’t possible with you working alone. You need the help of your dentist. For instance, not all areas in your mouth are reached during brushing. The molars are often neglected making them the perfect hiding spots for cavities to develop.

Your dentist can help by removing the plaque and tartar deposits through a scale and clean. Mayfield Dental Care offers a wide range of preventive dentistry services including oral hygiene instructions.

5. Check your diet.

Foods can also leave stains on your pearly whites, some more than others. Talk to your dentist to learn more about these foods or you can search the net for them, including better alternatives.

6. Stop smoking.

Smoking can cause yellow marks on your teeth and leave bacterial plaque, which can lead to gum disease.
