By choosing to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape, you are choosing to keep your smile healthy. Having healthy teeth and gums can help you avoid serious oral health problems like cavities, gum disease, tooth loss, and even bone loss. That is why it is important to keep your oral health in tip-top shape this new year.

Here at Sandpiper Dental in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, we care about your oral health and smile. That is why we have put this list of information together, so you can make positive oral health care habits and keep your teeth clean and fresh all year long. This list includes:

1. Brush your teeth twice a day, for two minutes a day. By keeping your teeth brushed and clean, you can prevent bacteria, plaque, and tartar from building up and giving you serious oral health problems.
2. Floss your teeth at least once a day. Food particles, plaque, bacteria, and even tartar can build in the hard-to-reach places of your smile between your teeth and along the gumline. That is why it is vital to use floss to remove these elements.
3. Use an effective mouthwash. Mouthwash plays an important role in ridding your mouth of bacteria your toothbrush and floss cannot reach.
4. Visit your dentist, Dr. David Trebisovsky at least twice a year. If you keep up with your dental checkups, there is a better chance of stopping a serious problem early before serious risks can apply. Our professional staff can help you reverse any oral health care issue and treat any conditions you may have.

As you can see, keeping your oral health in good shape is simple with these steps. If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to your oral care, please call us today at 763-561-7000. We are happy to address any questions you may have and help your smile stay healthy and strong for years to come.
