After you celebrate Thanksgiving, you can celebrate again. The day after Thanksgiving is National Flossing Day!

OK, maybe that’s not as exciting, but it does make this a good time to remind ourselves of the importance of healthy gums. Today, we are sharing three suggestions that can keep your gums and the rest of your smile looking their best.

Read them, and then call 918-347-1126 to make an appointment at LakeCrest Dental in Owasso, OK. 

1. Floss Daily

The American Dental Association recommends flossing every day to remove food particles and plaque from the spaces between your teeth and your gums. Survey show that less than half of all people actually do this. You can do this!

2. Brush Twice Per Day

You should scrub your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush twice daily. Each time, you should use a pea-sized about of toothpaste with fluoride and clean your teeth for two minutes at a time, being sure to brush them on all side.

3. Get Checkups

As part of your oral care routine, you should also get professional cleanings a few times per year. If you have dental problems — including gum infections — it’s better to know as soon as possible. Treating problems early is easier and more effective.
