As spring quickly approaches, you’re probably making your spring cleaning to-do lists. Well, our dentists encourage you to include your smile on that list. That’s right—you can spring clean your smile! In fact, spring cleaning your smile is encouraged because it can help you have the strong and healthy teeth and gums you deserve. To help you spring clean your smile, our dentist encourages you to do the following things:

-Get a professional dental cleaning: Our professional dental cleanings are a great first step to spring cleaning your smile. This is because it removes plaque, tartar and other dangerous and harmful substances from the teeth and gums that your oral hygiene routine cannot remove. So, if you’re due for your checkup, schedule one today!

-Replace your toothbrush: When your toothbrush bristles are frayed or when you have been using your toothbrush longer than three to four months, then you need to replace it. A new toothbrush can properly and effectively clean your smile, especially if you use a soft-bristled brush that has been approved by the American Dental Association.

-Clean your retainers and night guards: You can do so by soaking them in denture cleaner or brushing them with a soft-bristled toothbrush and soap or non-abrasive toothpaste. This is recommended because it can remove the plaque buildup on the appliance. Plaque is harmful for the teeth and gums.
