Do you want a healthy mouth this winter? If so, you need to care for your teeth, gums, and smile. Fortunately, this isn’t as tough as you might think it is. In fact, to properly care for your oral health, our dentist, Dr. Chad Catron, encourages you to do the following things:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s important to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. It’s also important to floss your teeth and rinse your mouth daily. When performing your oral hygiene routine, it’s best to use products that have been approved by the American Dental Association.

-Visit your dentist: Make sure to visit your dentist every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam if you’re due for one. These appointments are vital for a successful oral health, so don’t forget about or delay your appointments.

-Wear a mouthguard: If you participate in activities that can result in an oral injury, like ice skating, sledding, and snowboarding, it’s best to wear a mouthguard while doing these things. That way you can avoid knocking out or breaking your teeth.
