3 Dental Health Tips for the Detroit Spring

Springtime in Detroit is a time for refreshing and renewing. As the sun begins to warm the air and blooming flowers start to beautify our yards and gardens, our thoughts turn to cleaner homes and healthier bodies. Spring cleaning is not only a good idea for houses but also a great strategy for dental health. Here in Metro Detroit and Livonia, Redford, and all the surrounding areas, we are all ready to enjoy us some spring!

Dr. Jim DeCapite wants to help everyone in the Motor City and beyond with these three dental health tips for this spring and throughout the year:

  • Floss and brush twice a day: Keep those teeth and gums fresh and clean every day by flossing and brushing regularly. Remember the 2×2 rule – brush twice a day for two minutes each to get teeth clean and keep gums healthy. Dr. DeCapite’s professional staff is happy to answer questions about proper flossing and brushing techniques.
  • Enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables: Eating healthier is one of the changes we usually make in the spring. Fresh, raw fruits and vegetables can also be great for dental health. Crunchy, juicy fruits, such as apples, are incredibly satisfying and will help keep the mouth clean and healthy!
  • Come in for a dental cleaning: Spring cleaning is not just for the home. Take the time to schedule an appointment for a thorough dental cleaning now, to help maintain great dental health throughout the summer. While brushing and flossing every day is great for dental health, a dental cleaning is even better for gums and teeth.

When spring cleaning for that great smile this year, think about keeping those teeth and gums clean and healthy. At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we want our patients in Livonia, Redford, and the surrounding areas of the west side of Metro Detroit to enjoy a delightful spring and amazing dental health throughout the year.
