Holidays! It’s the Best Time for a Mouth Manicure - Mary Street Dental

Cleaner teeth are healthier teeth, and a mouth manicure is a nice way of ensuring your smile is neat and tidy. A cleaner mouth will give you beautifully fresh breath for the holiday season.

Target Tongue Cleaning

Your tongue can harbor large amounts of bacteria, but many people don’t clean their tongue regularly. A dedicated tongue scraper only costs a few dollars, or some toothbrushes have built-in scrapers.

Stay Well-Hydrated

Good hydration is crucial during the summer months and drinking lots of water helps fight bad breath. When you are properly hydrated, your body can make more saliva which helps to wash away bacteria that cause halitosis and dental disease.

Use Fluoride Toothpaste

Fluoride is an essential ingredient in toothpaste, fighting cavities and strengthening tooth enamel. After brushing, spit out excess toothpaste but don’t rinse, so a thin layer of fluoride ions remains on your tooth surfaces for a little more protection.

Don’t Neglect Flossing

Flossing is essential for strong, healthy gums and only dental floss can get right in between your teeth to remove plaque and food debris. If you are unsure about flossing, please ask us for help. We can show you some easy techniques to get you flossing like a pro.
