Here is a list of healthy habits that can help your smile stay in top-notch shape:

– Brushing: Make sure to brush your teeth twice every day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Be sure to throw out your brush every few months.

– Flossing: Use a sturdy interdental cleaner to flush away the areas between teeth. Flossing picks, water flossers, and dental floss tools all work effectively. Avoid contamination due to using the same floss string. Make sure any floss string is shred-resistant.

– Chewing gum: Studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum can prevent cavities. Try to use sugarless gum after eating.

– Mouthwash: Use mouthwash daily to help rinse out plaque and bacteria in your mouth. For additional oral health benefits, use a therapeutic mouthwash product.

As you can see, this list of healthy habits can be useful to keep your smile healthy.
