Treat Your Smile with Care Along with Your Peoria Family Dental Office
Everybody wants their smile to last a lifetime and the key of doing so is to keep up with your daily dental routine of brushing and flossing. With your Peoria family dental care, we want to help patients of all ages protect their teeth in certain instances. Below, we’ve provided some helpful tips for our patients, new and old!
Consider Buying an Electric Toothbrush
Sometimes, manual toothbrushes don’t always do the trick. Not many patients brush their teeth the proper way—they either brush their teeth too rough or not long enough. We suggest patients look for and invest in an electric brush. They vibrate and oscillate without the need for manual work, basically doing all of the work for you! But don’t go overboard; a simple, electric toothbrush shouldn’t cost too much money, so use your best judgement!
Do You Need a Mouth Guard?
The use of a mouth guard could be more beneficial in your everyday routine than you think. Mouth guards aren’t just for sports; they can protect your teeth from grinding together. Bruxism is a very common issue that many patients deal with, mostly when they’re sleeping since they could be grinding their teeth and clenching their jaw at night and not even know it! Wearing a mouth guard while you sleep can protect your teeth from grinding down and becoming smaller.
