Are you are aiming for robust and thriving oral health. Why not aim for a healthy lifestyle? Set your sights a little larger and you’ll accomplish the same results! To help you have the healthy lifestyle that will reward your teeth and gums, our Lakeland Dental Care team encourages you to implement the following actions:

Keep up on oral hygiene: You know the drill; brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. You can also rinse your mouth every day with antibacterial mouthwash. You’ll want to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride-filled toothpaste. Remember to floss with a product that can slide easily between your teeth, like dental floss or floss picks.

Have a balanced diet: Did you know that a balanced diet can help your teeth as well as the rest of your body? Simply avoid sugary and acidic products aim for healthier foods like fruits, vegetables and dairy products.

Avoid tobacco products: Tobacco can be extremely damaging to your oral health. It can discolor your teeth and cause tooth decay and even oral cancer.

Now that you know how to get started, your dentist, Dr. Alex S. Abernathy, and our dental team can cheer you on. If you have any questions or if you would like to know more about caring for your smile in Jackson, Mississippi, just call our office today at 601-981-8166. We look forward to helping you!
