Your dentist, Dr. Steven Driggers, wants you to have a strong and healthy smile. You deserve it! If you want a strong and healthy smile as well, then there are things you should do to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape. Regular smile care is essential, especially because there are many things that threaten your teeth and gums each day. So, to help you have the smile you deserve, our dentist recommends doing the following things:

-Clean your smile: It’s very important to brush, floss, rinse, and attend your checkups. It’s best to brush twice a day, floss and rinse daily, and visit our office every six months. These things help you keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong as well as help you avoid dental problems.

-Wear a mouthguard: A mouthguard is a strong appliance that can protect the teeth from oral injury when you participate in high-contact sports and activities. In fact, it can help you avoid things like knocked-out teeth, chipped teeth, and more when you suffer a blow to the face.

-Avoid or limit harmful foods and drinks: Those harmful foods and drinks are sugary and acidic products. The acid tends to attack the enamel and wear it down while the sugar promotes cavities.
