Drs. Thompson, Bottorff, Denardo, and Rizk want you to have the top-notch smile you deserve. This is why they encourage you to keep up on oral hygiene and attend your dental checkups regularly. Your dentist also recommends doing little things at school to keep your teeth and gums in the best condition possible. Fortunately, there are little school habits you can develop to help. Those habits are:

-Eat a tooth-healthy lunch: When you eat a tooth-healthy lunch, like one that is filled with fruits, vegetables, protein and dairy products, you can strengthen your teeth and improve the health of your smile. So, try to eat a tooth-healthy lunch as well as avoid acidic, sugary and high-carbohydrate foods.

-Brush your teeth after lunch: Keep a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste in your backpack and use them to brush your smile after lunch. Brushing can help you maintain a clean and pristine smile and it can also help you avoid embarrassing moments when food is stuck between your teeth.

-Sip on water throughout the day: Water is your smile’s friend. This is because it can wash the bacteria, food particles and acid from the teeth and gums. It can also help you prevent dental issues and dry mouth as well as help you have fresh and pristine breath. So, do your best to sip on water throughout the day.
