If you’ve chosen to decorate your smile with grills in Brighton, Colorado, it’s very important that you take great care of your teeth and gums. If you care for your oral health, you will be able to have the strong, successful, and healthy smile you deserve. Our Riverdale Dental Center team recommends caring for your smile by doing the following things:

Keep up on oral hygiene

When you have grills, there is a high chance that food and other debris can become trapped between the grills and the teeth. This will allow bacteria and germs to gather and produce acids, which can result in tooth decay and gum disease. This can also cause major bad breath. So, the best thing you can do to prevent these issues is brush your teeth twice a day and floss your smile at least once a day.

Limit the wear time

If your grills are removable, try to limit the time you spend wearing them. Remove them before you eat and try to only wear them on special occasions. The less you wear the grills, the higher of a chance you’ll have at preventing dental issues and maintaining a healthy smile.

Clean the product

Clean the grills at least once a day with the right cleaning solution. Do not use jewelry cleaner or another toxic solution to clean the grills.
