Have you been keeping up with your oral care? If so, you are not alone. Thousands of people often forget the basics of oral care and quickly find themselves in a dental chair with either cavity, gum disease, or even tooth loss because of neglect to their teeth.

With this holiday quickly approaching, why not prepare your smile? Here at Family Dentistry of Rockwall in Rockwall, Texas, we have provided vital information on products for you to have in your home that will help you in this war against cavities and poor oral health.

Here are four important products to keep your smile healthy through the festive season:

-Toothbrush: It’s usually best to choose a soft-bristled toothbrush. Many people always wonder if a manual toothbrush is better than an electric one, and the truth is it’s all a matter of personal preference. The important thing to remember is to always have a toothbrush for your teeth.

-Toothpaste: There are dozens of different kinds of toothpaste depending on your personal needs. If you have sensitive issues, then there are options. Either way, a cavity-fighting toothpaste is always best when it comes to keeping cavities out of your smile.

-Floss: Flossing is often a missed step in oral hygiene, yet vital to oral health. Floss keeps food particles and sticky sugary substances from latching onto your gums deep within the gum line and between your teeth. Waxed floss is usually easier for people to use than unwaxed floss, however, either kind of floss will help keep your smile healthy.

-Mouthwash: This clears all remaining bacteria from your teeth, gums, and tongue. They also have powerful abilities to help fight off cavities and polish off your smile leaving a beautiful and fresh smile behind.

Prepare your family for the festive holiday season this year by having products to keep your oral health in pristine shape. That way, your chances of cavities and gum disease can be dramatically reduced when used properly.
