If you’re like many others, you wish to keep tooth decay at bay and maintain a healthy smile. Fortunately, there are things you can do to do just that! Dr. Laney Schuman and our dental team at Midwest Family Dentistry have the perfect tips that can help you achieve your oral health goals.

The first thing you can do is stay dedicated to your oral hygiene routine. We recommend this because your oral hygiene techniques can remove the harmful plaque from your teeth that create cavities. So, please remember to clean your smile by brushing twice a day and flossing and rinsing daily.

The second thing you can do is attend your regular checkups at our office. This is also important because we provide a treatment that can successfully remove the cavity-causing plaque that is hidden in the hard-to-reach spaces of your smile.

The third thing you can do is eat foods that are healthy for your teeth. This means you should eat raw vegetables, fruits, and dairy products regularly as well as avoid sugar. It’s also recommended to limit snacking throughout the day and drink plenty of water.
