Over the years, people have let oral health decline due to poor oral habits. That is why the American Dental Association has come to recommend using these four steps in order to maintain a happy, healthy mouth.

1.Brush and floss: Regularly brushing twice a day while flossing at least once a day is the best way to help your teeth stay as clean as possible. Brush those sugary treats away so your smile can shine each day.
2.Use a fluoride toothpaste: It’s important to use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste to help you obtain the cleanest smile while your brush your teeth.
3.Replace your toothbrush: Replacing your toothbrush regularly is another healthy way to keep harmful bacteria from residing in your mouth. As you brush your teeth, the bacteria will stick to your toothbrush, which is why it’s so important to replace your toothbrush regularly.
4.Visit your dentist regularly: Scheduling your six month dental appointments will help eliminate serious oral problems. At these appointments, your dentist will watch out for any serious problems that can be caught at the early stages of development, which will help maintain your oral health.
