If you want a strong and successful smile, then you need to do everything you can to care for your teeth and gums regularly. This means you need to care for your smile while you’re at work. Fortunately, there are good work habits that can help you clean and care for your smile throughout the day. Our dentists, Drs. Johnson and Irwin, encourage you to use those habits. Those habits are:

-Eating a tooth-healthy lunch: There are foods available that can help you have stronger and healthier teeth. Those foods are fruits, vegetables, protein and dairy products. It’s best to eat these foods for lunch instead of sugary, high-carbohydrate and acidic foods.

-Brushing your teeth after lunch: If you brush your teeth after lunch, you can remove the food particles, bacteria and other harmful substances from your teeth and gums to reduce your chances of suffering dental issues. Brushing can also help you remove food that is stuck between your teeth, which can help you avoid food-filled smile moments.

-Sipping on water throughout the day: If you sip on water regularly, the water will wash the smile. This can eliminate the dangerous substances from the mouth, prevent dental issues, help you avoid dry mouth and even help you have better breath. So, please remember to drink water throughout the day.
