Your smile needs care and treatment to stay white and bright as we age. Having the right tools at your disposal could be the difference between positive and negative oral health for you and your entire family. Additionally, some dental tools can help keep your smile white for whatever you may face in your day.

Our dentist, Dr. Spencer Ellis, is happy to help you with your oral health questions and concerns. That is why our team at Ellis Family Dentistry in Huntsville, Tennessee, is willing to share with you some reminders on the right tools for your smile.

Here is a list of what your smile needs:

-Toothpaste: Toothpaste is required to apply on your toothbrush as you brush your teeth every morning and night.

– A toothbrush: A toothbrush is used to clean your teeth and protect them from plaque, food debris, and bacteria from your teeth.

– Sugar-free chewing gum: Sugarless chewing gum can help keep your teeth cleaner between meals and increase the saliva production.

– Mouthwash: Mouthwash is helpful for clearing bacteria from your mouth to resist cavities and gum disease.

– Dental floss: There are different types of dental floss you can use, but any dental floss can help clean your teeth around the gumline and between your teeth.

If you use these tools daily, you could be keeping your smile healthy as you age. If you have any questions about your oral health, or if you need to see a dentist, please call us today at 423-663-4444 to set up a consultation with a professional member of our team.
