Brushing your teeth is not enough to maintain your most beautiful smile.  Flossing helps remove plaque and food particles from the hard to reach places.  Place your floss out where you will not forget and make it a habit.

There is a direct link between tooth decay and consuming sugar.  Reduce the amount of sugar in your diet by leaving the sugary treats at the store.  The other key is to cut out sugary drinks.


Stop Smoking

Smoking doubles the risk for gum disease, among other health concerns.  quitting is best for your health.  Pick a date to stop, throw away all tobacco products, and seek support.
