Although regular brushing and flossing could help keep your pearly whites in tip-top shape, spending long hours and staying late in the office may actually make you forget about keeping your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. Here at our Dayton dental practice, we offer the following tips to keeping your chompers healthy and good-looking!
Office Dental Trap #1: Too much coffee or tea.
Coffee and tea are top tooth-staining culprits. In addition, the sugar you add in these drinks may build up in between teeth and lead to dental caries and plaque.
The Action Plan: Swish water in your mouth in between sips of coffee and tea or right after drinking them.
Office Dental Trap #2: Overflowing sugary snacks.
The Action Plan: Set a limit as to the amount of sugary snacks you can munch on the whole day.
Office Dental Trap #3: Forgetting to practice good oral hygiene.
The Action Plan: Set aside a separate office toothbrush in a dry container. To remind you about it throughout the day, keep it visible in your table. A post-it note reminding you to brush and floss may also come in handy!
