How to Spring Clean Your Mouth

Published on April 29th, 2019

You have finally decided to spring clean: your house, your closet, your yard. Why not spring clean your oral hygiene? Brushing our teeth has become a daily habit in our lives that we sometimes forget to make dentist appointments and replace a lot of our at-home dental products. Don’t worry, keep reading for your spring checklist!

 

Replace Your Toothbrush and Replenish on Other Products

If you cannot remember the last time you replaced your toothbrush, now would be the time to do it. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), you should be replacing your toothbrush roughly every three months. If you have an electric toothbrush, you just have to replace the head. Check the expiration date on your mouthwash and if it has expired, it’s time to purchase a new bottle.

Tap Into Your Inner Flosser

Make sure you are fully stocked with floss. Now that we are spring cleaning, it’s a good time to remember that flossing should occur every day, before every brushing. It’s important to have a clean smile and flossing takes a big part in that. Your electric toothbrush can miss some plaque and flossing is there to remove it all. Flossing and brushing are the perfect duo you need in your life to continue to keep your oral hygiene routine as successful as possible.

Time to Check in With your Dentist

When was your last visit to the dentist? If you are going twice a year, now is a good time to make an appointment. Our cosmetic dentists in Chicago are always happy to see you when you come in for a visit. Even just a quick cleaning can help boost your dental hygiene.

 

We want you to look your best this spring and having a clean smile is the first step!
