Enhancing your oral healthcare depends on many factors that are within your control. Although protecting your smile against the risk of oral accidents and injuries is effective, other aspects of your oral health care need to be implemented as well. This includes taking the necessary steps for cleaning your mouth and eating a proper diet.

Always make sure that any products you’re using to clean your mouth are dentist-approved or feature the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Furthermore, always make sure that any risks with any products that you are using are minimized by using products correctly and as intended. This is especially true for teeth whitening products, as misuse of a product can bleach your gums or even damage your tooth enamel.

As a general rule, you should always exercise caution with your diet. This includes making sure that you are avoiding sugary products that can easily contribute to dental erosion and tooth decay. Furthermore, exercise caution with hard candies or any other hard products such as corn on the cob that could chip and crack your teeth. In order to ensure your smile can continue to thrive, schedule regular visits with your dentist.
