Are You Flashing a Winning Smile?

Leading dentists recommend ACT mouthwash. It is gentle and pleasant tasting and you are not immediately repulsed by a caustic, burning sensation akin to the emission of 1000 chili peppers found in some of their counterparts. In the world of mouthwashes, it doesn't have to burn like hell for it to work, and you certainly don't have to be subjected to the strong burn of alcohol. If your mouthwash is causing an unpleasant experience that you'd rather skip, I suggest switching to a gentler formula like Scope Outlast, one of my new faves, or Crest mouthwash. A mouthwash will freshen the breath, kill bacteria and some are equipped to strengthen the tooth with the action of fluoride.
Prophylaxis (Professional teeth cleaning).
So you're consistent with your brushing, rinsing and flossing game, what else can you do for your teeth? Dentists and hygienists are able to offer an even more effective clean by using their power-tools to remove culprits like tartar (hardened plaque) which isn't removable by brushing alone. Other useful benefits of cleaning include plaque removal, polishing of the teeth and also fluoride treatment to strengthen the enamel. In a deep cleaning procedure, these professionals get to the roots of the teeth to remove harmful components.
A dental cleaning is generally recommended every six months and for some as frequent as every three months.
Other Useful Tips.
Finally, when was the last time you paid a well-needed visit to your dentist? If you haven't seen your dentist since Obama's first term, then it's time for a checkup. It is highly recommended to go at least twice per year for an oral exam and subsequent dental procedures as needed. I write this article because I've learned the hard way that being shrouded in a blanket of laziness at nights is no excuse for failing to attending to your teeth. After a few fillings and two root canal procedures, my nonchalant attitude doesn't fare well with the negative effects. The greater benefit lies not only with having a beautiful smile, but with knowing that you're on point with your dental care and health, making a healthier you.
