Do you want a top-notch oral health? If so, you probably already know that you should brush twice a day, floss once a day, rinse your mouth with mouthwash daily and visit your dentist, Dr. Alison Scott, twice a year for a routine dental checkup. Fortunately, there are also little tricks you can use to take even better care of your smile. Those tricks are:

-Chew gum: Chewing sugar-free gum can help you have a healthy smile free from dental problems, like tooth decay, gum disease and more. This is because it can help produce saliva; when you produce saliva, it washes the mouth. This can constantly remove the problem-causing bacteria from your teeth and gums. So, try to chew sugar-free gum after each meal.

-Kiss more: Little did you know, kissing can also help you have a top-notch smile. This is because it also produces saliva, and saliva constantly washes the mouth. So, if possible, kiss as much as you can! But, only if it’s welcomed.

-Have a healthy and active lifestyle: Having a healthy lifestyle by eating healthy foods can help your teeth because healthy foods strengthen the tooth enamel and nourish the gums. Having an active lifestyle can help you avoid damaging your teeth because exercise can relieve stress. Stress can make you clench your jaw and grind your teeth.
