Smile Friendly Tips While Stuck at Home:
- Liven up your morning routine and brush to music. Sometimes brushing your teeth for 2 minutes can feel like an eternity. Try brushing along to “You Ain’t Nothing but a Hound Dog” by Elvis. It’s 2 minutes long and makes brushing fun!
- Choose tap water. Drinking water throughout the day not only keeps you hydrated, it keeps your breath fresh.
- Eat a healthy snack. It’s tempting to snack all day while stuck in the house. Keep your smile healthy with fresh fruits, veggies, nuts and cheese.
