Many people know that the American Dental Association knows what they are talking about when it comes to oral health. Over the years, the ADA has put oral care first among their patients since 1859. Today, the American Dental Association now states that more than157,000 dentists are part of the organization.

When it comes to your oral health it’s important to keep your teeth clean through daily habits. That is why it is recommended by the ADA to keep these daily habits to obtain a healthy and happy mouth.

1.Brush and floss: Regularly brushing twice a day while flossing at least once a day is the best way to help your teeth stay as clean as possible. Brush those sugary treats away so your smile can shine each day.
2.Use a fluoride toothpaste: It’s important to use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste to help you obtain the cleanest smile while your brush your teeth.
3.Replace your toothbrush: Replacing your toothbrush regularly is another healthy way to keep harmful bacteria from residing in your mouth. As you brush your teeth, the bacteria will stick to your toothbrush, which is why it’s so important to replace your toothbrush regularly.
4.Visit your dentist regularly: Scheduling your six month dental appointments will help eliminate serious oral problems. At these appointments, your dentist will keep their eyes out for any serious problems that can be caught at the early stages of development, which will help maintain your oral health.
