Do the Daily 4
- Brush teeth twice daily (for two minutes each).
- Floss every day.
- Rinse with an anti-microbial rinse. (Feel free to ask the Whitmore Dental team for recommendations.)
- When brushing is not possible, chew sugar-free gum after eating and drinking. According to the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA), chewing gum for 20 minutes after eating or drinking stimulates saliva production by 10 times the normal rate! This neutralizes acids and can help repair tooth decay.
Brush, floss, rinse, chew…these four easy steps can protect your teeth from plaque and harmful bacteria, and keep your smile looking great! With the holiday season approaching, we all want to look our best, so what better time to start some new habits?
Do the Daily 4 is an official campaign sponsored by the ADHA and the Wrigley Oral Health Care Program.
When you do the Daily 4, and receive regular dental check-ups, the result is a winning combination for your teeth. During your dental visits, our team will talk with you about the health of your teeth. Beyond the Daily 4, we can give you additional suggestions about keeping your teeth looking and feeling terrific.
