Smile Care 101: A Healthy Lifestyle Results in a Healthy Smile

Posted .

Your dentist, Dr. Kenneth Lewis, and our dental team care about you and your smile, which is why we encourage you to have a healthy lifestyle. Having a healthy lifestyle can help you have a healthy smile in Fayetteville, North Carolina. So, to help you accomplish this goal, our Lewis Family Dentistry team encourages you to do the following things:

Keep up on oral hygiene: Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day and floss your smile once a day. You can also rinse your mouth daily with antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. As you brush, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. As you floss, use a product that can slide easily between your teeth.

Have a balanced diet: It’s best to take good care of your smile and overall health by having a balanced diet. You can have a balanced diet by avoiding sugary and acidic products and by consuming healthier foods, like fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.

Avoid using tobacco products: Tobacco can severely harm your oral health. It can stain your teeth and cause tooth decay—but the worst consequence of all is oral cancer.

If you do these three things, there is a higher chance that you’ll have the strong, successful, and beautiful smile you deserve. For more information and details, please remember that you can always call our office at 910.488.0518. Our dental team is more than happy to help you in any way we can!
