Have you ever made an oral health care checklist designed to test how well your oral health care is coming along, and by default your oral health in return? Knowing what you can do to keep your teeth safe and clean is just as important as implementing the habits in your life.

When purchasing products, it’s always a good idea to look for dental cleaners that feature the American Dental Association’s ADA Seal of Acceptance. The ADA only gives this award out to those products that are at the pinnacle of their respective trade and have clearly demonstrated they are both extremely safe and effective.

The condition with which you store your cleaning tool is also important. To avoid contamination, never share your toothbrush with anyone and always store it upright in a well-ventilated area. Also, make sure your brush has soft bristles and is replaced every 3-4 months. Other oral health tips include knowing your complete dental history, avoiding candies and sugary drinks, scheduling professional cleanings with your dentist, and avoiding dangerous risks to your oral health such as wearing mouth jewelry.
