Spring Cleaning for Your Dental Care Routine
Now that spring has begun and the plants have started to bloom, many people turn their focus to spring cleaning, organizing and freshening up their homes. Once the winter months and holidays have gone, you might even be excited about giving your home some much needed attention and scrubbing. Spring is the time for new beginnings and many will take this time to also do a “detox” by cleaning up their diet with healthier eating habits. Why not add spring cleaning for your dental care routine to your list?
Here’s a few things you can do to give your dental care routine a spring cleaning of its own!
- Change Out Your Toothbrush – Dentists recommend swapping out your brush at least once every three to four months. Throw out damaged toothbrushes with tattered bristles. Remember to replace your brush after you’ve been sick. There could be harmful bacteria left behind.
- Update Your Toothpaste – If you have been using the same toothpaste for some time, now is the time to consider if you are using the right toothpaste for you. The best toothpastes will effectively clean your teeth without damaging the enamel. Choose a toothpaste that is not too abrasive.
- Get a Professional Cleaning – A professional dental cleaning at least twice a year is an important part of your dental health. It is strongly recommended that a dentist or hygienist perform a dental cleaning every three to six months.
- Get a Whitening Treatment – For dramatic whitening, professional treatment is often the best option. Professional whitening offers efficient brightening without prolonged exposure to products that can lead to uncomfortable tooth sensitivity.
