Of course, you should also keep your teeth healthy in between cleanings. We suggest that you brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes at a time, floss at least once a day, and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash each day. These habits will drastically reduce the likelihood of harmful plaque and bacteria accumulating in your mouth and causing painful dental issues like infections.
Being physically active will keep your body healthy, but it can sometimes put your smile at risk. If you play a sport where there’s a chance of impact to your face, like soccer of football, we recommend always wearing a mouthguard. Your dentist in Lake Havasu City can create a personalized mouthguard for you that fits more comfortably, provides more protection, and lasts longer than store-bought alternatives.
