You deserve to have a strong and healthy smile this spring. Having a top-notch smile can help you enjoy the warm weather and outdoor activities without having to worry about your teeth and gums. Our dentists, Dr. Deborah Backiel and Dr. Dennis Sharkey, are happy to help you achieve the resilient smile you deserve by giving you the tips you need. Those tips are:

-Visit our office: When you come in to our practice, our dental team will remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gum line, thoroughly cleaning your entire smile, which can help you prevent major dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Our dentists will also examine your mouth to make sure everything is healthy. If a problem is found, we can restore your oral health and smile with any necessary treatments.

-Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s very important to brush twice a day, floss once a day and rinse with mouthwash daily. These things can help you maintain a clean and pristine smile while also helping you to prevent dental problems. As you keep up on oral hygiene, use a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste and antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash.

-Protect your smile: A mouthguard is your best friend if you participate in high-contact sports and activities. This is because it helps prevent knocked-out and broken teeth as well as injured oral tissues if you get hit in the face with a ball, knee, elbow or other hard object.
