Would you like to go above and beyond for your smile and oral health? If so, Dr. Randal Brown and our dental team are thrilled to hear it! We love when our patients take good care of their teeth and gums. To help you go the extra mile for your smile, we have some tips and recommendations for you.

Tip No. 1: Clean your teeth throughout the day, even if you’re at the office, school, or home. If you brush after you eat, your teeth and gums will remain clean and pristine and bacteria will be washed away before they harm your smile. This can also help you avoid having an awkward food-filled smile!

Tip No. 2: If you play contact sports or activities, wear a mouthguard while doing so. It’s best to protect your teeth in case a hard ball, elbow, knee, or other object hits your mouth. If you’re not wearing a guard at this time, it could cause severe injury. Wearing a guard can help you maintain a healthy and strong smile.

Tip No. 3: Don’t forget to rinse your mouth. You can do so after you’ve brushed and flossed your teeth before bed. As you rinse, follow the instructions on the mouthwash bottle and use a rinse that can benefit your teeth and gums. Usually these products have been approved by the American Dental Association.
