Oral hygiene is very important for a top-notch smile and oral health. This is why your dentist, Dr. Michael Smith & Evan Smith, strongly recommends keeping up with oral hygiene regularly. This means you need to brush twice a day and floss and rinse daily. Doing these things can help you in a myriad of ways. To help you understand a little more, our dentist is happy to list the things oral hygiene can do for you, which are:

-Remove dangerous substances from the teeth and gumline (Oral hygiene removes things like plaque and bacteria from the smile, which can help you prevent major dental problems that can destroy your oral health.)

-Eliminate some tooth discoloration (If you use the correct toothpaste, brushing can remove surface stains from the enamel and give you a whiter smile.)

-Strengthen the teeth (If you use fluoride toothpaste, the fluoride will dive into the enamel and strengthen it, which can help you prevent cavities and enamel erosion.)

-Keep the smile in tip-top shape (Cleaning the teeth and gums regularly can keep them healthy and strong.)
