Drs. Barfield wants you to have the healthiest smile possible, which is why they encourage you to keep up with oral hygiene and attend your dental checkups regularly. Your dentist also encourages you to do little things at work to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape. Fortunately, there are little work habits you can develop to help. Those habits are:
-Eating a tooth-healthy lunch: There are foods available that can help you have stronger and healthier teeth. Those foods are fruits, vegetables, protein and dairy products. It’s best to eat these foods for lunch instead of sugary, high-carbohydrate and acidic foods.
-Brushing your teeth after lunch: This can be an easy task if you keep your toothbrush and toothpaste in your office desk. Brushing your teeth after lunch can remove food particles and bacteria from your smile to help you prevent dental issues and maintain top-notch teeth and gums. So, don’t forget to brush after you eat!
-Sipping on water throughout the day: When you sip on water, the water cleans the teeth and gums from bacteria and food particles. This can help you prevent dental issues and dry mouth and it can even freshen your breath. So, keep a water bottle with you if necessary and sip on water throughout the day.
