If you want a top-notch oral health and smile, then you need to care for and clean your teeth and gums regularly. This means you need to brush twice a day, floss once a day, rinse with mouthwash daily and visit your dentist, Dr. Jody W. Adams, for a routine dental cleaning and exam every six months. You can also do little things every day to help boost your oral health. Those things are:

-Chew gum: Chewing gum can help your teeth in many ways because it produces saliva. When you produce saliva, the food particles and bacteria can be washed away from your teeth and gums. So, try to chew gum after each meal and throughout the day.

-Eat tooth-healthy foods: Fortunately, there are foods available, like dairy products, that can help neutralize the acid in the mouth. This is very helpful because acid tends to attack the teeth, wear down the enamel, and make it vulnerable to cavities. So, try to eat more tooth-healthy foods throughout the day.

-Pack your toothbrush: If you have your toothbrush with you, you can brush your smile at least once when you’re out and about. In fact, it’s best to brush after lunch. This can help you wash bacteria and food particles away and can even help you avoid having an embarrassing food-filled smile.
