A Spring Clean for Your Teeth

Spring is officially here! As you prepare for the warmer weather, WA Dental has got a few tips to help freshen your smile.

Replace your toothbrush: it is a good idea to replace your toothbrush or electric toothbrush head every three months. If the bristles are frayed before then you are probably brushing too hard. Always remember to buy a toothbrush with soft bristles.

Stock up on toothpaste and floss: dentists recommend a fluoridated toothpaste. Fluoride is the most important ingredient in toothpaste and helps prevent tooth decay by strengthening tooth enamel.

Change your diet: reducing your intake of sugary food and drinks will not only reduce your risk of tooth decay but help you look great in time for summer.

Schedule an appointment with your dentist for a checkup and clean: you may also use this appointment to discuss any cosmetic concerns you have regarding your smile or think about tooth whitening. Call our Ellenbrook or book an appointment online today.
