Building your best smile often starts with building your best oral health care plan. The better the plan is to enhance your smile the more likely your smile is to be successful. It’s also a good idea to diversify your plan. Rather than focusing intensely on oral hygiene try to have a wide portfolio of dental planning treatments including visits to your dentist, dietary selections, cleaning habits, and lifestyle choices.

Caring for your smile depends on limiting the effects of dangerous products that can chip and crack your teeth. This includes the use of mouth jewelry such as lip and tongue rings, or even chewing and biting into hard candy or other similar products. Protect your smile from oral accidents by wearing the necessary safety equipment or avoiding the risks altogether. If your mouth is at risk for dental damage due to an accident or injury from a sport or other similar activity, try using a face mask or mouth guard to keep your smile safe.

Always ask your dentist about the use of any products for your oral health care. Caring for your smile depends on keeping your smile safe, so use products that are recommended by your dentist. For additional help with your oral health care, visit your dentist for routine check-ups, regular examinations, and 6-month professional cleanings.
