oral health

A bright smile is part of good oral health.

Keeping your teeth pearly white doesn’t require major oral health work.

As we point out on our website, “In-Office or at home cosmetic whitening which is available at Dr. Rosenberg and Associates has become one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures today. The procedure itself really doesn’t take very long. A hardening resin is applied to the gums to protect them from irritation from the bleaching gel. The bleaching gel which is hydrogen peroxide will be applied to the teeth. This will remain on the teeth for approximately 15-30 minutes. It will then be removed and an additional one or more treatments will be reapplied and remain on the teeth again for 15-30 minutes.”

These oral health tips can help you maintain that bright smile.

Brush with baking soda

It can be good oral health practice beyond whitening to use toothpaste with baking soda, according to Healthline.

According to the site: “Science has not yet proven that brushing with plain baking soda will whiten your teeth, but several studies show that toothpaste with baking soda has a significant whitening effect. One study found that toothpastes containing baking soda were significantly more effective at removing yellow stains from teeth than standard toothpastes without baking soda. The higher the concentration of baking soda, the greater the effect (10). Furthermore, a review of five studies found that toothpastes containing baking soda removed plaque from teeth more effectively than non-baking soda toothpastes (11).”

Eat fruits and vegetables

Fruits and veggies are not just good for the rest of your body. They’re good for oral health as well.

“While they’re no substitute for brushing your teeth, crunchy, raw fruits and vegetables can help rub plaque away as you chew. In particular, strawberries and pineapple are two fruits that have been claimed to help whiten your teeth,” according to Healthline.
