Sometimes life can take it’s toll on you. Just about any time of the year you can start to feel rundown, but in the Winter time especially, if you’re working hard, or perhaps getting over a cold, it’s tough to always look our best. And one factor that can contribute to feeling run down is your smile. When your teeth aren’t looking their brightest, it can make your whole outlook on life a little less bright. In fact, many studies have proven that there’s a connection between your oral health and your overall health.
But even if your smile isn’t as white as it could be or your mouth doesn’t quite feel as clean and fresh as usual, don’t fret- There are some easy ways to get your teeth feeling great. The first tip I would suggest is getting yourself back into good habits of oral health. Most of us remember to brush every day, but it can be easy to forget to floss or use mouthwash. Heck, sometimes after a long day at work or spending time with your family, all you want to do is crash into bed (and the last thing you want to do is floss!). Oral health is all about practice- keep yourself in good habits and it will pay off immensely.
the food you eat can also keep also help make your teeth feel great. Certain foods like crisp fruits and vegetables and milk can help lift stains and strengthen your teeth. Finally, be sure to see your dentist every six months for a cleaning and check up. Even if you’re not prone to cavities, it’s good to see the dentist so they can recognize any potential issues, plus there’s nothing better than a cleaning done by a professional!
