As spring arrives and the weather gets warmer, you’re likely deep cleaning the house and getting ready for some fun outdoor activities in the coming months. As you do these things, our dentist in Medford, Oregon, Dr. Don Schiess, encourages you to also work towards a strong and healthy spring smile. To do so, he recommends that you do the following things:

-Visit our office: When you come in for your appointment, our dental team will professionally clean your teeth and gums. This can help you avoid major dental issues, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Our dentist will also examine your smile to make sure everything is healthy and strong. If a problem is found, we will provide treatment to give you the spring smile you want.

-Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s very important to brush every morning and night as well as floss and rinse (with mouthwash) daily. These things can keep your smile clean and pristine throughout your life. They can also help you keep dental problems at bay.

-Protect your smile: A mouthguard is your friend if you participate in high-contact sports and activities. This is because mouthguards help to prevent knocked-out and broken teeth; they can also help you avoid experiencing injured oral tissues if you get hit in the face with a ball, knee, elbow or other hard object.
