There may be ways to improve on the way you take care of your mouth. If for instance, you’re only brushing your teeth once a day, it’s not enough – plaque will win out! Your Centennial dentist will tell you that brushing twice a day will really reduce the risk of plaque buildup.

Use a mouthwash. Some over the counter brands contain fluoride to help prevent cavities. Some fight off the bacteria that cause gum disease, and still others claim to help whiten your teeth. Read the label, or ask your Centennial dentist for his recommendation.
