Your Teeth Spring Cleaning

When you start thinking about spring cleaning, there’s a good chance you think about getting your home in great shape after being stuck indoors during the winter, but it’s really a great time to refresh and clean every area of your life. As you focus on spring cleaning, don’t forget about your teeth. After all, taking care of them is essential to your overall health, and a beautiful smile looks and feels great. This spring, take the time to renew and invest in your oral health. Here’s a look at several ways you can work on spring cleaning for your teeth.

Time Out for Toothbrush Care

As you’re doing spring cleaning in your home after the long winter, stop and think about how long it’s been since you invested in a new toothbrush. It’s so easy to forget to swap out your toothbrush regularly. It’s important to change out your toothbrush every three months for the best results, and there’s a good chance it’s been awhile since you swapped yours out. When you do get a new toothbrush, make sure you’re choosing one that fits in your mouth and in your hands comfortably. Soft bristles are important too so you don’t injure your gums while brushing. Swapping out your toothbrush every three months will also help you improve your overall health as well, since you’ll avoid spreading the germs that are so prevalent during cold and flu season.

Stock Your Bathroom with Supplies

While you’re spring cleaning the entire house, take a look at how your oral hygiene supplies look. Are you low on toothpaste, mouthwash, floss, or other dental hygiene supplies you regularly use? This is the perfect time to head on a shopping trip to stock up. You’ll be cleaning out items you don’t need, so there will be plenty of room for those essential supplies. Stock up now and you won’t be left without the supplies you need when you run out.

Make Sure You Spring into a Good Dental Hygiene Routine

With all the winter holidays, it’s often easy to let your dental hygiene routine suffer just a bit. As you’re working on refreshing and cleaning up your life for spring, make sure you spring into a good dental hygiene routine once again. If you were a bit lax before, make sure you get those dental hygiene habits reestablished. Make sure you’re brushing at least twice a day, and you can protect teeth further by having a travel toothbrush with you when you’re traveling and at work so you can brush after lunch too. Stock up on floss picks to have with you so you can floss regularly, since many people forget to floss because it’s not always convenient. Be sure to floss a minimum of once a day to keep teeth and gums healthy.

Head in for a Checkup and Cleaning

Heading in to the dentist for a checkup and cleaning should be part of your spring cleaning routine for your teeth as well. If you don’t have a lot of oral problems, it can be easy to forget about your regular checkups and cleanings. However, that checkup is essential for preventing and catching any oral problems. As you work on spring cleaning your home, remembering to schedule your exam can be a great way to make sure your oral health has a fresh start this spring.

Brighten Up This Spring with a Whitening Treatment

Maybe your teeth are looking a bit yellowed after a winter of indulging in heavier foods and sweet treats around the holidays. There’s an easy way to brighten up this spring – a whitening treatment. When you head in for that spring checkup and cleaning, talk to your dentist about the whitening options that are best for you. While it’s easy to find whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes at the store, they don’t provide the long-lasting results you want. Professional, in-office whitening treatments offering quality, long-lasting results that will have your smile looking amazing for all those spring and summer events you’re sure to attend.

Take good care of your teeth this spring by getting into the office for your routine checkup and cleaning. Schedule your appointment with Hancock Village Dental today and get your teeth in great shape for spring.
