The steps to good oral health are up to us. It costs far less time and money to practice routine home maintenance on your teeth and gums, and visit your dentist once a year for a complete oral exam and professional cleaning than it does to wait until you have pain or an obvious problem.

Men and women do have different oral health habits and needs, but to help protect your teeth and gums against oral disease and to maintain overall good health:

  • Brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day
  • Use toothpaste containing fluoride
  • Limit sweets
  • Visit your dentist regularly

Improving your smile is as easy as asking your dentist!
