Tips for Keeping Your Smile Beautiful
Your smile can say so much without even saying a word… it can let people know you’re full of joy, feeling a little shy… or even bit nervous.
Here are a few of my favorite “smile” photos:
This is my Mom (isn’t she pretty?), me at age three and my new baby brother. Can you spot my nervous smile?
And here’s my little family, right after I gave birth to my daughter. My husband’s smile looks happy (and maybe slightly scared), my smile says “I’m happy but super tired” and my little boy has that same nervous smile that I did so many years ago!
And this is a photo of baby today, along with the rest of us. In this snapshot, our smiles let you know we’re all happy and so glad to be together as a family. Yep, smiles are important and so is good oral health. Here are some tips for keeping your smile beautiful.
How to Keep Your Smile Beautiful
1. The 2 x 2 Rule: Be sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day, for two minutes each time. If you have young kids, you might consider leaving a kitchen timer in the bathroom for them, so they can set it to two minutes. This makes brushing even more fun!
2. Floss is “Boss”: Floss your teeth daily and ask your dentist what kind of floss they recommend for you (waxed or unwaxed).
3. Make a Regular Date with Your Dentist: Set up an appointment to see your dentist every six months.
4. Chew Trident Gum: Chewing Trident for 20 minutes after eating and drinking helps to clean and protect teeth. In fact, 4 out of 5 Dentists surveyed would recommend Trident to their patients.
