TIPS FOR MAINTAINING A STRONG AND VIBRANT SMILE:

Replace Your Toothbrush
Your toothbrush is a superhero in the fight against cavities; but even heroes need a refresh. Swap out your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months. Instead of using a toothbrush cap, rinse your toothbrush with mouthwash occasionally for extra cleanliness.


Timing is Everything
If you love indulging in acidic delights like sodas or citrus fruits, hold off on brushing immediately afterward. The acid softens your enamel, and brushing too soon can erode it further. Instead, wait for an hour before brushing to allow your enamel to re-harden.


Embrace Crunchy Veggies and Fruits
Besides being a nutritional powerhouse, crunchy fruits and vegetables stimulate saliva flow, a natural defense against gum disease and cavities. Foods like celery and carrots not only promote saliva production but also provide essential nutrients for strong teeth.
