If you want to avoid stains on your teeth, prioritize good oral health care. That means brushing twice a day and flossing at least once. 

Ensure that you are correctly taking care of your teeth by learning to brush and floss correctly. If you have any questions about how to brush or floss, never hesitate to ask us during your visits.

Visiting your dentist in Edmond, OK for twice-annual cleanings and checkups will help keep your teeth healthy and clean. Routine checkups allow your dentist to monitor your dental health and catch any problems that may arise faster.

Apart from doing a good job of cleaning your teeth, monitoring what you eat and drink can help increase not only your oral health but your bodily health as well. Foods that are bad for your oral health should always be avoided or consumed in moderation, but if you are trying to avoid other things that might stain your teeth, consider staying away from:

  • Smoking
  • Soda
  • Sugary foods
  • Highly acidic foods
  • Candy, especially hard and sticky candy that easily gets stuck to teeth
  • Foods with high amounts of pigments, like cranberries, tea, coffee, and wine

Brushing after meals is always a good idea, but this is especially true if you eat or drink foods like this. Reducing the amount of time soda and other damaging foods spend on your teeth will help keep your teeth strong.
