Six 10-Second Healthy Tooth Helps

Ingleside cosmetic dental and tooth implants

It doesn’t have to take a lot of time to improve your oral hygiene. In fact, with the following tips from the dentist at Cornwall Dental Arts in Ontario, you can form a new habit to benefit your oral health in 10 seconds.

Find a better place for your toothbrush.
Look around. In 10 seconds you can probably find 5 places to set your toothbrush that will allow air drying and can inhibit the growth of microorganisms that a closed, moist environment would encourage.

Leave the floss on the counter.
If you want to create consistency, you need reminders. Deliberately setting out the floss will give you more commitment to use it. And if you see it, you’ll remember that commitment.

Swish.
If you’re in 20 seconds already, might as well grab the fluoride rinse and wash away bits of food after flossing and freshen your breath at the same time. 10 seconds is the minimum but 20 is twice as good.

Smile in the mirror.
Check out those chompers. Examine for 10 full seconds. Inspect gums for bleeding or tenderness, missed fragments of food, staining, or other concerns.

Have a water chaser with dark beverages.
Rinse your mouth with a sip of water when drinking cola, tea, or coffee throughout the day. A mere 10 seconds that will curb discoloration.
