You deserve a strong and healthy smile. This is why your dentist, Dr. David Duke, strongly advocates caring for the teeth and gums each day. Unfortunately, there are many things that can harm the smile, and if you’re not careful, you can suffer problems like enamel erosion, cavities, and gum disease. Fortunately, there are things you can do to achieve the top-notch smile you deserve. Those things are:

-Clean your smile: It’s vital that you brush your teeth every morning and night, floss once a day, rinse with mouthwash daily, and visit our office for a checkup every six months. These things are very important because they remove the dangerous substances from the smile, like plaque and tartar.

-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: Acidic and sugary foods and drinks harm the smile by wearing the tooth enamel down and promoting cavities. It’s best to limit or avoid those products, like sticky candy, soda, and more.
