Could your oral care routine use a little spring-cleaning? If you have some questions about what might be best when it comes to keeping your healthy smile, you’re not alone. Keeping good dental habits is one of the easiest ways to maintain a healthy mouth and smile. But if you don’t understand how to care for your teeth and gums, you may be doing more harm than good.
Just like your home requires seasonal maintenance, so do your teeth, and Spring is the perfect time to schedule your 6 month cleaning and exam, says Dr. Sandeep Kaur of Rite Smile Dental. Spring is a popular time for hygiene and exams as college kids are returning home for the summer school age kids are catching up on their physicals for summer activities. Spring is also a popular time for adults to come in for their cleanings, especially if they are planning to take a summer vacation and want to make sure that any needed dental work is taken care of well in advance of any planned trip. Dr. Kaur highly recommends coming in for a cleaning and exam before making a trip, especially out of the country, so that a long awaited vacation is not marred by a dental emergency.
