Do you want a strong and healthy smile? If so, our dentist, Dr. Victor J. Dongo, is happy to help you achieve your goals! Having top-notch teeth and gums can help you in a myriad of ways. It can help you eat and talk properly, it can help you smile with confidence, and it can help you have pristine oral health. To help you have the top-notch smile you deserve, our dentist has some tips for you. It’s best to:

-Clean your smile: It’s important to brush your teeth twice a day, floss and rinse your smile daily, and visit our office every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. These things remove the plaque, tartar, and other bacteria from the teeth and gumline to help you avoid dental issues, like cavities and gum disease.

-Wear a mouthguard: A mouthguard is a strong appliance that can protect your smile if you participate in high-contact sports and activities. If you suffer a blow to the face, it can help you avoid injuries like knocked-out teeth, chipped teeth, and injured oral tissues.

-Avoid or limit harmful foods and drinks: Acidic and sugary foods and drinks harm the smile by wearing the tooth enamel down and promoting cavities. It’s best to limit or avoid those products, like sticky candy, soda, and more.
