Add Flavor into your Water

Do you sometimes get headaches? You could be dehydrated. Water is one of the best ingredients to help make a beautiful smile. This is because it helps cleanse the system and will remove food particles that stay on your teeth, which can sometimes prevent cavities.

If you don’t like drinking water you are probably not drinking enough water. Doctor Justin Marostica, our dentist in Tigard, suggests getting creative and adding flavor. Such as sugar free flavors or even natural ingredients. Popular ingredients include lavender, peppermint, lemon or lime. You can even add sliced cucumbers that are fresh. Any fresh fruit will help flavor your water. It will make it more flavorful.

Buy a New Toothbrush

When was the last time you bought a new toothbrush? It’s time to get a new toothbrush if you can’t remember. Having a clean brush with fresh new bristles will help improve your smile and improve your outlook on life.
