According to the American Dental Association, a person’s smile outranked eyes, hair and body as the most important physical feature, which is why our team at Lach Orthodontic Specialists is celebrating National Smile Month by reminding our patients of the importance of oral hygiene to maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile that will last a lifetime. So here are a few simple steps that can help improve your oral health for many years to come:
– Brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Here’s a helpful video showing you how to brush with your braces on.
– Floss every day to clean between your teeth.
– Limit your intake of sugary foods and drinks.
– Visit your dentist regularly (usually every six months apart).
If you have questions about any of these tips, we encourage you to give us a call. And please, do not forget to show off your beautiful smile by posting your favorite smile photos on our Lach Ortho Facebook wall for other patients to see.
