So you want a Healthy Smile?
Do you eat breakfast before brushing your teeth or do you brush before digging into your morning meal, do you want a healthy smile? At Spanish Fork Dentistry, we’re curious about our patients’ habits and how they might affect their oral health and healthy smile. Let’s explore the benefits and risks of both routines:
Eating Breakfast Before Brushing:
+Saliva production increases during meals, helping to neutralize acids and wash away food particles.
+You can enjoy the full flavor of your breakfast without the lingering taste of toothpaste.
-Leftover food particles and sugars can cling to your teeth and contribute to the formation of plaque and cavities.
Brushing Before Eating Breakfast:
+Removes bacteria and plaque that has built up overnight, reducing the risk of tooth decay and protects a healthy smile.
+Reduces the risk of bad breath, allowing you to feel more confident as you start your day.
-Tooth enamel may be temporarily weakened by acids in food and drink, making it more susceptible to damage from brushing.
Ultimately, the choice is yours! Whichever routine you prefer, for a healthy smile always remember to brush and floss daily and maintain regular dental check-ups at Spanish Fork Dentistry to ensure a healthy, happy smile.
