Your oral health care should never be taken lightly. It makes the difference between a poor smile and a great one. Even the smallest details can have enduring effects. Here are some questions you’ll want to ask yourself if you desire to have a better smile.

– Do you brush your teeth twice each day and floss once daily?
– Are you using any additional mouth cleaning tools after mealtimes, such as sugarless gum or mouthwash?
– Do you protect your mouth with safety gear such as face masks or mouth guards during high-risk activities?
– Do you avoid foods and drinks that are high in sugar and acid?
– Do you incorporate healthy doses of calcium and phosphorus into your daily diet?
– Have you followed your dentist’s recommendations and instructions since your last checkup?
– Do you avoid chewing and smoking tobacco and doing drugs?
– Have you arranged and kept your regular dental cleanings and exams?
