How Often Should You Floss?
Have you ever wondered if you floss too often or too little? The truth is, you should make sure you floss your teeth really well, once per day. Flossing poorly twice per day does not make up the difference, and flossing too often is not good for your gums either. However, flossing properly once per day helps to protect your teeth and keep them clean. If you have questions about proper flossing technique, let us know! We can provide suggestions on how to improve and keep your smile healthy.




Ways of Protecting Your Teeth When at Work Where You Cannot Brush
Getting out a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash at work may not be convenient, and in some instances, it is not even possible. However, there are times where you need to clean your teeth, so what do you do? Here are a few tips that can help. Each of them can be done while at work or simply on a busy day where you are not at home to brush just after eating.

Protect Your Teeth with These Simple Tips:

Wherever you go, bring water with you. It helps to rinse your mouth out when you eat anything, and it helps to wash down the bacteria that want to break down your enamel. The more water you drink, the better.

Also, when you go out or go to work, pack snacks that help your teeth. Grab a small bag of fresh produce to nibble on during the day, like celery, carrots, apples, and pears. These fruits can help clean your teeth while eating, making them nutritious and tooth-healthy snacks. When possible, pack a salad for lunch at work. Eating the fresh produce is also great for protecting your teeth between times of being able to brush.

Your teeth are valuable and need to be taken care of throughout the day. However, that is not always possible depending on where you are. When it isn't possible, follow these tips. They can make caring for your teeth a lot easier.
