Do you want a top-notch smile? If so, then you need to properly care for it each day. Now, you probably already know that you should brush twice a day and floss once a day, but did you know you could also brush your teeth at work? Well, it’s true. In fact, brushing your teeth at work can help you and your smile in many ways. It can help you prevent cavities, help you maintain a clean and healthy smile and help you avoid embarrassing moments when food is stuck in your teeth. These reasons are why your dentist recommends brushing at work, after lunch if possible. To help make the task easier and more convenient, he encourages you to do the following things:

-Pack your oral hygiene tools each day by putting your toothbrush and toothpaste in your purse, backpack or briefcase. To make this easier, you can buy a separate toothbrush and toothpaste and just always keep them in your bag. Or you can even keep them in your office drawer! This makes it possible to brush each day.

-Remind yourself to brush those teeth. The workday can get busy, so remind yourself to brush after lunch by writing on a sticky note, setting an alarm on your phone or even asking a co-worker to remind you. It doesn’t matter how you remind yourself. As long as you brush, you’re set!
