Do you want a smile that is in tip-top shape? If so, then you need to remember to keep up on oral hygiene and attend your checkups regularly. There are also little things you can do at work to keep your teeth and gums in the best condition possible. Our dentist, Dr. John A. Johnson Jr., encourages you to do those things so you can reach your smile goals. Those work habits are:

-Eating a tooth-healthy lunch: If you stick to foods that are healthier for your teeth, you can increase your chances of having a better smile. Those foods are vegetables, fruits, dairy products and protein. You should also avoid eating foods that can harm the smile, like sugary, acidic and high-carbohydrate foods.

-Brushing your teeth after lunch: Brushing your teeth after you eat can help you have a clean and healthy smile and it can even remove food particles stuck between your teeth to help you avoid embarrassing food-filled smile moments. So, keep a toothbrush and toothpaste in your desk drawer so you can brush after lunch!

-Sipping on water throughout the day: When you sip on water, the water cleans the teeth and gums from bacteria and food particles. This can help you prevent dental issues and dry mouth and it can even freshen your breath. So, keep a water bottle with you if necessary and sip on water throughout the day.
