Oral Hygiene at Work | Erin Sundt DDS

Dentist Waterford

Are you struggling to find time to brush your teeth during your busy workday? Don’t worry! There are still ways to keep your smile healthy and bright while at work.

  1. Drink Water:
    After eating, swish some water around in your mouth to help wash away food particles. This simple step can prevent plaque buildup and reduce the risk of tooth decay. Plus, staying hydrated is good for your overall health!
  2. Chew Sugarless Gum:
    Opt for sugarless gum approved by the American Dental Association (ADA). Chewing gum stimulates saliva production, which helps neutralize acids and wash away food particles. It’s a convenient way to freshen your breath and protect your teeth between meals.
  3. Limit Sugary Drinks:
    Coffee, soda, and other sugary beverages can erode tooth enamel and increase the risk of cavities. If you enjoy these drinks, try to consume them quickly rather than sipping throughout the day. Rinse your mouth with water afterward to minimize the impact on your teeth.
  4. Maintain Good Oral Hygiene:
    While you may not be able to brush and floss at work, make sure to do so at home. Brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time, and don’t forget to floss daily. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings with Dr. Erin Sundt DDS are also essential for maintaining optimal oral health.

Taking care of your teeth shouldn’t be a hassle, even on busy workdays. By following these simple tips, you can protect your smile and prevent dental problems.
