Resolve to Keep Your Smile Strong
Maintaining a solid oral care routine doesn’t have to be difficult! Follow these simple steps to keep your smile bright and healthy:

1. Follow a daily brushing and flossing routine.
Brush your teeth at least twice a day and be sure to floss at least once a day. Brushing and flossing consistently can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Bonus: swish daily with antibacterial mouth rinse to further help prevent problems.

2. Eat a balanced diet.
Enjoy a variety of healthy foods and limit your intake of sugar. Enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables, which can help strengthen your teeth and bolster your overall health. If you do have a sugary snack, be sure to brush your teeth afterward to ward off decay.

3. Book your next cleaning.
Regular hygiene appointments with Dr. Dervin can help keep your smile healthy and strong. If you haven’t booked your next appointment, resolve to call immediately at 913-422-0875 to schedule your first 2015 cleaning.
