When many of us think about “spring cleaning,” the first thing that comes to mind is tidying up our homes. But whether it’s a messy kitchen, a cramped closet, or a cluttered garage, your living space isn’t the only thing you should consider cleaning up this season—your smile could probably benefit from some spring cleaning, too! Here’s more from your dentist about the value of professional care and a few ways you can ensure your pearly whites look and feel their absolute best during this time of the year.

The Importance of Professional Dental Care

There’s no better way to kick off your spring season than by visiting your dentist for a spring cleaning. Not only do these visits let your dentist keep tabs on the current status of your smile, but it also allows them to safeguard it from future issues through the treatment they carry out.

During these visits, the dental team will use special tools to polish away stains and remove tartar from the surfaces of your teeth. They’ll also scrape away the plaque that has built up between your teeth that you can’t clear out on your own. This doesn’t just greatly reduce the risk of decay, but it also leaves your pearly whites sparkling and shining!

It’s also worth mentioning that your dentist is an awesome resource for all things concerning oral health, meaning these visits aren’t just a great way to kick off your spring cleaning, but they’re also the perfect opportunity to educate yourself or ask questions if there’s something on your mind.

4 Ways to Enhance Your Spring Oral Hygiene Routine

There are several ways you can enhance how you care for your smile at home; investing in the correct equipment and establishing correct habits is crucial! Consider these tips:

  • Update your toothbrush – You should inspect your brush for signs of discoloration or fraying; brushes with fresh, softer bristles are ideal for brushing since they prevent enamel loss. Electric toothbrushes are also worth considering and have been proven to clean more thoroughly than their traditional counterparts.
  • Clean your toothbrush holder – The container that you use to store your toothbrush is exposed to the same germs as the rest of your bathroom, so be sure that you’re sanitizing it regularly to prevent the transmission of bacteria from your bathroom to your mouth!
  • Check expiration dates – Dental hygiene products have expiration dates, just like anything you’d find in your fridge or pantry. It never hurts to double-check that you aren’t using an expired product; this can cause more problems than it’ll solve!
  • Set up a dental checkup if you haven’t already – You cannot replicate what a dentist can do on your own, meaning that you should set up a routine checkup and cleaning. This doesn’t just ensure the integrity and beauty of your smile in the present moment; it keeps it looking and feeling its best moving forward.
