Did you know that grills in Everett, Washington, can affect your oral health? Well, it’s true! Even though grills are popular products in the world today, that doesn’t mean they are safe for the smile. That is why our Albright Family Dental team strongly recommends caring for your teeth and gums while you use these decorative products. You can do so by doing the following things:

Keep up on oral hygiene

Oral hygiene is extremely important when you have grills, especially because food tends to gather between the grills and the teeth. So, please remember to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time and floss your smile at least once a day. It’s also beneficial to rinse your mouth daily with antibacterial mouthwash.

Limit the wear time

If your grills can be removed from your smile at any time, it’s important to try and only wear the products on special occasions. It’s also recommended to remove them right before you eat a meal or snack—that way your chances of getting food stuck in the grills decrease.

Clean the product

It’s highly recommended to clean your grills at least once a day. If you clean them on a regular basis, the bacteria and food debris will be washed away, which will reduce your chances of having dental issues. So, please clean your grills with the proper cleaning solution—not jewelry cleaner or any other toxic cleaning solution.
