― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
Now that March has passed, we can actually say that spring is here. I can’t speak for you, but this is the time of year that makes me open up my windows to let the fresh air in and clean everything to freshen up. With that thought in mind, here are some tips to go along with the “spring cleaning” mentality.
- Why not take stock of your old toothbrushes and replace them with new ones? You can use the old ones to clean your grout or sneakers.
- Better still-replace your toothbrush with an electric one. At more than 30,000 strokes per minute compared to the average of 100 strokes per minute with a manual toothbrush, electric toothbrushes work harder by pushing fluid between teeth and around the gum line, which provides a more effective cleaning.
- If you haven’t done so, schedule an appointment for a dental check-up and “spring” cleaning. You may even want to consider doing bleaching as we are heading in to the summer months. A brighter smile can be yours for the summer.
