Spring is finally in full swing, and there’s no better way to kick off your spring cleaning this season than by straightening up your smile and getting your teeth into tip-top shape! Here are a few useful tips from your dentist in Phoenix to help you set your smile up for a healthy and bright year!

1. Consider Updating Your Toothbrush

Your toothbrush is one of the most important tools at your disposal for cleaning your smile; so, consider updating it this spring to ensure that you’re providing the best possible level of care for your teeth! You should try to replace your toothbrush every 3 months, but sooner if you’ve recently been sick. It’s also worth mentioning that brushes with softer bristles are ideal since they minimize enamel loss.  

2. Give Your Toothbrush Holder a Thorough Cleaning

The container where you store your toothbrush is exposed to the same germs that are all throughout the rest of your bathroom. If you’re not sanitizing it regularly, you’re enabling the transmission of bacteria! Be sure that you’re keeping your toothbrush holder, sink, bathroom counter, and any other surfaces as clean and sanitary as possible so that those germs don’t end up inside your mouth!

3. Double-Check Expiration Dates

Believe it or not, dental hygiene products have expiration dates too, just like the milk in your fridge! It never hurts to double-check all of the dates on your toothpaste, mouthwash, and anything else in your bathroom cabinet; using an expired product could end up harming you more than helping you.

4. Schedule a Dental Visit

Your dentist is by far the best resource for all things relating to oral health, and scheduling a visit with them this spring season is the perfect way to set your smile up for a great year. Not only can your dental team carry out a thorough cleaning of your pearly whites, but they can also inspect them for any signs of decay or other nasty problems. This leaves your smile looking and feeling its best moving forward.

When most people think about “spring cleaning,” it isn’t their smile that comes to mind, but rather, their home. However, following these four tips will allow you to keep your teeth and your house as tidy as possible!
