Our dental team at North Fork Dental Care wants you to have the strongest and healthiest smile possible, which is why we are happy to do everything we can to help you. Today, we would like to give you some quick tips that can help you have far-reaching effects on your oral health and your oral hygiene routine.

Our first tip is to keep a travel-sized toothbrush and toothpaste with you. All you need to do is keep a cover over your toothbrush and keep it and toothpaste in your purse, backpack, desk, or locker. Having these things with you can help you clean your smile throughout the day. Not only can this improve your oral health, but it can also help you avoid having an embarrassing food-filled smile and odorous breath.

Our second tip is to chew sugarless gum. When you chew gum, you produce saliva, and saliva helps wash away decay-causing bacteria. So, all in all, chewing sugarless gum can help you prevent cavities and keep your smile in top-notch condition.

Our third tip is to drink water throughout the day. Drinking water can do the same as chewing sugarless gum. It can frequently wash your smile. It can also help you prevent dry mouth, which is a dental issue that can also promote cavities. So, carry a water bottle with you throughout the day and stay hydrated.

If you have any questions or if you would like to know more about how to have a top-notch oral health in Rexburg, Idaho, please remember that our dental team is happy to give you the answers you’re looking for. We also encourage you to schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. James Thomason, if you need to schedule your next six-month checkup. We look forward to helping you!
