Wait! Don't throw that old toothbrush out just yet.

Here are 7 great uses for your old toothbrush: http://bit.ly/2yxAvid



Put the soda down and start drinking water
    

Those who regularly drink soda may experience significantly more tooth decay than those who don't. Even if you choose the drinks that don’t use high-fructose corn syrup, they likely contain high amounts of sugar which produces acid that damage teeth. So try drinking water with your next meal. Your teeth will thank you!



Healthy gums mean a healthy smile!

 

Healthy gums mean a healthy smile! Prevent gum disease by brushing and flossing regularly, avoiding sugary foods and drinks, and seeing us for regular dental checkups.





Quick Tip: Floss with your eyes shut.
If you can floss with your eyes shut at home then you can floss anywhere – the car, school, or even at the office.
