Do you wish to maintain a healthy mouth and smile? If so, Dr. Joan M. Jupina and our dental team at Jupina Dental are thrilled to help you! There are things you can do regularly to achieve your smile goals.

First, brush your teeth every morning and every night. It’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste while brushing. As you do so, set a timer for two minutes and thoroughly clean the front, back, and top of each tooth. This can help you remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth.

Second, floss between your teeth once a day. This is encouraged because plaque and bacteria can grow between your chompers. If you’re not careful, they can continue to grow and promote gum disease. As you floss, be careful along the gumline.

Third, visit your dentist regularly. It’s best to visit her every six months for your routine cleaning and exam. The treatment provided can help you prevent major dental issues, like tooth decay and periodontal disease. It can also allow our dental team to deeply examine your smile.

Fourth, eat healthy foods. Sugar can create cavities, so please limit sugar as much as possible. For healthy teeth, it’s best to eat tooth-healthy foods like raw vegetables, fruit, and dairy products. It’s also encouraged to chew on sugarless gum. This can help you produce saliva that washes bacteria away.
