Did you know, by keeping healthy oral habits you have a better chance of keeping cavities at bay and giving yourself positive oral health? Well, it’s true! Having healthy oral habits can help keep cavities at bay and prevent gum disease and other serious conditions down the road. That is why our team here at Darden DDS in Glendora, California, is happy to provide you with these tips to help keep cavities away this holiday season.

These tips include:

-Brush your teeth for two minutes two times a day: By brushing your teeth, you are removing any residue that may be stuck on your teeth keeping your gums and teeth healthier.

-Floss your teeth each day: By flossing your teeth, you are removing plaque and bad bacteria wedged between your teeth and deep along the gumline.

-Visit your dentist regularly: Professional cleanings and oral health examinations are vital to removing the tartar and other bacteria from your mouth. These checks also include oral cancer screenings and other health checks to help prevent serious conditions.

-Eat healthy and nutritious food: Having a healthy diet will help keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong.

-Change your toothbrush regularly: Over time, as you brush your teeth bacteria may begin to reside in your brush. Changing your brush every 3-4 moths or sooner if your bristles become worn and frayed will help keep bad bacteria from your mouth and give you a cleaner brush.

By applying these tips into your life, you will find yourself with a healthier smile!
