Do you want a top-notch smile and oral health? If so, you need to protect your teeth and gums from the many things that can damage them. The more you protect them, the better off you’ll be. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to keep your smile safe. Our dentist, Dr. Rakhi Jani, is happy to share some tips with you!

-Wear a mouthguard: A mouthguard can help you prevent losing or breaking a tooth when you participate in high-contact sports and activities. This is because it absorbs the force applied to the mouth when when it is struck.

-Use fluoride: Fluoride can help you have a strong smile because it strengthens the tooth enamel. This is why our dentist encourages you to expose your teeth to fluoride regularly. You can do so by using fluoride oral hygiene products, drinking fluoridated water and receiving professional fluoride treatments.

-Take advantage of dental sealants: Dental sealants are thin, clear barriers that are placed over the back teeth. They protect the teeth from bacteria and acid and they keep tooth decay, enamel erosion and other dental issues at bay.
