Happy World Smile Day! The intent of World Smile Day is to engage in an act of kindness or good deed in the spirit of the Smiley symbol.
Although the traditional Smiley has no teeth showing, I hope you don’t mind if I pass along some tips on keeping your smile beautiful and healthy:
Brush at least two times a day for two whole minutes, once in the morning and once at night.
Brush each and every tooth (it’s called a tooth brush and not a teeth brush!) to get each and every surface.
Brush gently and use a soft tooth brush – you don’t want to hurt those all important gums!
Floss once a day to keep those in-between surfaces germ free, too.
Eat a healthy diet, low in sugar. Plaque germs that make acid on the teeth just LOVE sugar – Starve the plaque!
Watch what you drink – water is always your best bet. It has no sugar and keeps you healthy and hydrated.
If you can’t brush – rinse or sip some water, or chew some sugar-free gum.
Finally, think about someone you love and how each day is a gift. It will make you smile and a smile is a beautiful thing.
Yours in good oral health for better health,
