How To Maintain A Healthy Smile

Oral Health Tips

At Winston Smiles, we want all of our patients to be confident in their smiles. That being said, not everyone knows the best ways to maintain their teeth and gums. That is why we are here to give you the best tips to transform your mouth and keep your mouth healthy.


At-Home Care For Your Mouth

  • Brush your teeth a minimum of two times a day.
  • Floss every day.
  • Use mouthwash directly after brushing your teeth.
  • Try to find toothpaste that has fluoride in it, because fluoride straightens your tooth’s enamel.
  • Change your tooth brush after you are sick.


Children’s Oral Health Tips

  • Supervise your child while they are brushing or flossing.
  • Use a timer to make sure your child is brushing their teeth long enough.
  • Stop your child from sucking their thumb or using the bottle for too long while their teeth are developing.


Make An Appointment At The Dentist

  • Talk with us about your anxieties about coming to the dentist.
  • Make sure you make appointments for regular check-ups.
  • Ask our dentists for more tips.


Watch Your Diet

  • Quit smoking! Smoking can stain your teeth and cause gum disease, tooth loss, and severe cases of mouth cancer.
  • Stay away from sugary foods and drinks.
  • Wait an hour after eating and drinking before brushing your teeth.
