Oral Care Plus Customized Braces Equals A Healthy Smile

Oral Care Plus Customized Braces: Everyone wants a great smile. And if you asked most people, they’d tell you that straight, white teeth are what you need for a beautiful smile. If you asked dentists, though, they would add that the function and overall health of your teeth are also very important for a great smile. Some people are born with naturally straight teeth, and some people go their whole lives without a single dental cavity. Most of us, however, need a little help when it comes to getting our best smile. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to get a great straight smile and keep your teeth healthy.

First, let’s take a look at some of the steps you can take to get and maintain healthy, cavity-free teeth:

  • Brush your teeth two times a day. The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice daily, each day, to reduce the risk of dental cavities, receding gums, and gum infections. Brushing your teeth to reduce the risk of these oral health issues is important because untreated tooth decay and gum disease can lead to tooth loss. By keeping your teeth clean and healthy, you may be able to avoid the need for dentures, implants, and bridges and keep your real teeth instead.
  • Rinse when you can’t brush. You’re not always at home after meals, and you probably don’t always have a toothbrush and toothpaste with you. But you can still keep your teeth clean and prevent trapped food and bacteria buildup by rinsing your mouth with water. The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends that children rinse after lunch when at school, and then brush once they get home.
  • Change out your toothbrush regularly. Old, worn toothbrush bristles aren’t as effective as new ones. The AAO recommends replacing your toothbrush or your electric toothbrush’s head at the first sign of wear. Even if your toothbrush isn’t worn out, the AAO says you should replace your brush at least once every three months.

Healthy teeth and gums are the foundation for a lifetime of great smiles. But crooked, crowded teeth or gaps between teeth may be keeping you from the perfect smile you want. Straight teeth actually help you achieve better dental health by reducing the pressure that crowded teeth exert on surrounding teeth, and by correcting jaw and bite issues.
