Yes, today is indeed World Smile Day! We asked cosmetic dental expert, Dr. Lowenberg to share a few tips on how we can keep our smile healthy.
Brush twice a day, for two minutes, in front of a mirror. Opt for a soft bristle brush to effectively clean the tooth’s surface and pair it with toothpaste containing fluoride to help strengthen the tooth enamel. Electric toothbrushes are also a great option because they automatically time 2 minutes of sonic technology brushing for optimal cleaning.

Floss at least once a day and don’t forget to floss between back teeth. Although many choose to skip this step, flossing is essential to remove plaque build‐up in between teeth, where brushing can’t reach. This is where many cavities begin.

Rinsing twice a day can combat bacteria, bad breath and most importantly strengthen teeth. Look for a mouthwash that does more than just freshen breath. As we age, our tooth enamel naturally erodes so choose a fluoride rinse to decrease the likelihood of cavities.

So easy to do, and so important to keep those teeth and gums in top form.
