It’s hard to believe that we’re already halfway through March! You know what that means? The time is ripe for some good, old-fashioned spring cleaning! The tradition of giving your home a deep clean when the weather gets warmer has been around for centuries. As you dust, sanitize, freshen, and declutter your home from all the winter dirt, don’t forget about your teeth! Yes, spring is the perfect time to schedule your routine dental appointment and make sure your set of pearly whites are clean and healthy. The Canadian Dental Association (CDA) recommends biannual dental examinations to catch small problems early, and keep your teeth in good shape. On top of this, our team has put together a few more tips for you to improve your oral hygiene this spring:
Replace Your Old Toothbrush
How long have you been using your current toothbrush? Hopefully not more than three months. According to the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association (CDHA), you should replace your toothbrush every three months. Replacing your toothbrush regularly will increase the effectiveness, and help you avoid oral health problems such as tooth decay.
Stock Up On Dental Hygiene Products
Running out of dental products such as toothpaste, toothbrushes and dental floss can be a real bummer and inconvenient. Take this time to stock up on backup dental products so that you never run out entirely. That way, you’ll always have what you need to maintain oral hygiene. Just be sure to keep an eye on the expiration dates!
