Spring is upon us and there is more to clean than just your home. Even your oral care routine can use a refresh. Here are some tips for those who are hoping to do just that.

There’s more to oral care than just brushing and flossing. An oral rinse is a crucial step to a healthy mouth due to its ability to kill bacteria. A good dental care routine is key to achieving total wellness, and poor oral hygiene can lead to gum disease. Consistent brushing and use of oral rinses in the morning and before bedtime, along with regular flossing, are essential practices for maintaining a healthy mouth. Just as you prioritize your annual physical or consult with medical specialists, it's crucial to schedule regular dental check-ups every six months as well. These appointments not only entail professional cleanings from a hygienist but also ensure that your oral health is at its best.

To refresh your smile for spring make sure to brush and floss twice a day; use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Brushing and flossing help remove plaque, bacteria, and food particles that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Don't forget to use an oral rinse regularly, too. Eat fibrous foods (fruits and veggies) daily to remove bacteria from mouth, help hydration and deter dry mouth. Ensure that your balanced diet includes vitamins C, D, and E. Stimulate salivary flow with sugar-free mints, lozenges, or gum.
