3 Smart Steps for Spring Cleaning Dental Health

It is Easter Week in the Motor City! Even if it’s not quite as warm of spring as we’d like yet, we still usually get the urge to do some spring activities and cleaning in our Metro Detroit homes during this time of year is a priority. Yet, it is time to do more than clean our closets, our garages, and our kitchens.

Spring cleaning is also great for our dental health! At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we encourage our patients to think about smart ways to look at their dental health as well. Spring cleaning is not just about getting rid of clothes we cannot wear or organizing our cabinets.

Dr. Jim DeCapite is happy to share three smart steps for spring cleaning our smiles as we head to Easter Sunday:

  • Choose healthy snacks: Cheese, nuts, and fresh fruits and vegetables can be just as tasty as sweet or fattening snacks. A fresh spring apple that’s crunchy and juicy satisfies the taste buds and helps keep the mouth clean and healthy!
  • Floss and brush regularly: Remember the 2×2 rule. Brush twice a day for two minutes each. Ask  Jim DeCapiteand his expert professional staff about proper flossing and brushing techniques that keep mouths healthy and happy!
  • Schedule a dental cleaning: Spring is the perfect time of year to schedule that dental cleaning. While brushing and flossing every day will keep mouths healthy, a thorough dental cleaning takes it all one step further. A professional cleaning with DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry leaves the mouth healthy and the teeth ready for a beautiful spring smile!

At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we enjoy the arrival of spring and the warmer weather. We also look forward to hearing from our patients who call to schedule their regular dental cleanings. We are excited about helping all our patients maintain good dental health throughout spring and the rest of the year.
