Spring is here! We wanted to remind our patients on 5 important dental hygiene tips that could help make your spring even better. Comment below if you have tried any of these in the past.

1) Replace Your Toothbrush

It's common for bacteria to stay on your toothbrush after brushing your teeth, making it important to use a new toothbrush if you get sick to prevent germs from spreading and even increasing your symptoms. The best way to prevent this is to replace your toothbrush when you get sick. Even if you are not sick, it's always a good idea to replace your toothbrush periodically. If you see the bristles are starting to fray, that is a good sign to get a new toothbrush.

2) Have your children drink water after taking liquid antibiotics

One teaspoon of liquid antibiotics, like that famous gum flavored amoxicillin, contains as much sugar as one can of soda! Make sure you and your children also drink a glass of water to help balance the sugar.

3) Don't forget to floss

A lot of people made some resolutions for the New Year, and we bet flossing wasn't one of them. But did you know that flossing is one of the most important things you can do to maintain good dental hygiene? Flossing allows you to reach deep between your teeth where the toothbrush bristles cannot reach or even mouthwash cannot wash away. Start off with flossing at least once a day. Your future self with thank you for this.

4) Limit soda, coffee, and alcohol

Although these beverages contain high levels of phosphorous, which is a necessary mineral for a healthy mouth, too much phosphorous can deplete the body's level of calcium. This causes dental hygiene problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Beverages containing additives such as corn syrup and food dye can make pearly white teeth appear dull and discolored.

5) Visit Your Dentist!

You should visit your dentist at least twice a year to have a full hygiene treatment performed. Also at these appointments, a comprehensive exam is taken with x-rays to help detect and prevent future dental treatments form occurring. Please call our to schedule your springtime appointment today!

Thank you to everyone who helped donate making this year's Operation Gratitude candy buy back event a SUCCESS! We collected over 136 lbs of candy, sent a box of toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss and a few little notes from the elementary children at Yonkers School PS30.
