Fall is quickly approaching, which means you’re probably starting to prepare for the first day of school or even the upcoming holidays. As you make your “To-Do” list, don’t forget to include your smile. There are things you should do to prepare your smile for fall so you can have strong and healthy teeth and gums. Dr. H Arthur Nelson is happy to tell you all about them.

No. 1: Clean your mouth. This means you need to schedule your next dental checkup at Nelson and Associates McKinney if you haven’t already. It’s important to visit your dentist every six months if you want a strong oral health. During this appointment, our dental team will prepare your smile for fall by deeply cleaning your mouth and even strengthening and nourishing your teeth. We will also solve any dental issues if necessary.

No. 2: Replace your toothbrush. If you’ve used your toothbrush longer than 4 months or if the toothbrush bristles are frayed, it’s best to throw it away and get a new one. So, go ahead and put “toothbrush” on your shopping list if you need a new one.

No. 3: Drop a tooth-harming habit. Some of these habits include using your teeth as tools, drinking acidic beverages, smoking, and more. If you have a smile-damaging habit, it’s best to drop them now, especially because it’s before the holidays. If you work on this goal now, you’ll be able to focus on it and achieve it without the holiday hustle and bustle clouding your mind.
