Six 10-Second Healthy Tooth Helps

It doesn’t have to take a lot of time to improve your oral hygiene. In fact, with these tips from the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria, you can form a new habit to benefit your oral health in 10 seconds.

Here goes!

Find a better place for your toothbrush.
Look around. In 10 seconds you can probably find five places to set your toothbrush that will permit air drying and can inhibit the growth of microorganisms that a closed, moist environment would encourage.

Leave the floss on the counter.
If you want to establish consistency, you need reminders. Deliberately setting out the floss will give you more commitment to use it. And if you see it, you’ll remember that commitment.

If you’re in 20 seconds already, might as well grab the fluoride rinse and rinse away bits of food after flossing and freshen your breath at the same time. 10 seconds is the minimum but 20 is twice as good.

Smile in the mirror.
Check out those chompers. Examine for 10 full seconds. Scrutinize gums for bleeding or tenderness, missed fragments of food, staining, or other concerns.

Have a water chaser with dark beverages.
Rinse your mouth with a sip of water when drinking cola, tea, or coffee throughout the day. A mere 10 seconds that will inhibit discoloration.
