If you are interested in caring for your smile more than the typical “brush two times a day and floss once a day” regimen, our American Fork Family Dentist team is here to help you! For a stronger and healthier smile, we recommend cleaning your teeth during the day while you are at work. To make that possible and to help you properly do so, we recommend doing the following things:
· Keep a soft-bristled toothbrush at your desk so you can brush your smile any time you feel it’s necessary. We also recommend keeping floss with you as well. It might even be easier to have a flossing tool handy so you can floss and work at the same time.
· Do your best to brush your teeth immediately after lunch—before you answer emails and before you start working. If you make this task a priority, your teeth will remain healthy and you won’t need to worry about having food stuck in your smile.
· After you brush, dry your toothbrush and put it in a sanitary travel container. You need to keep your toothbrush as clean as possible.
· Replace your toothbrush more often than you replace your home toothbrush. It’s best to do so because the office tends to have more bacteria and germs that can reside on your toothbrush.
