Do you want to maintain a top-notch smile at work? If so, our doctor, Dr. Edward B. Miller, is more than happy to help you. Fortunately, there are things you can do while you complete tasks and projects in your office or cubicle. Those things are:

-Keep a toothbrush and toothpaste in your desk drawer. Then, brush your teeth every day after you’re done eating lunch.

-Avoid sticky and sugary treats and snacks. These products tend to cling to the teeth for long periods of time and promote cavities.

-Avoid sipping on sugary and acidic beverages throughout the day. Sugar and acid create dental problems.

-Avoid chewing on pens and pencils. Instead of chewing on pens and pencils, chew on celery or carrots.

-Avoid using your teeth as tools. Using your teeth as tools can fracture your tooth enamel.

-Drink water throughout the day. Doing so can wash the bacteria from your teeth and gums regularly.
