Healthier Teeth and a Better Smile in 5 Easy Steps

Who doesn’t want a beautiful smile? A smile can tell a lot about a person, it can also tell a lot about the health of their teeth. Follow these 5 easy steps for healthier teeth:

1.)   Brush frequently. Preferably, you should brush after every meal. If that is not possible, be sure to brush every morning and night to prevent tooth decay.

2.)    Floss daily. Your toothbrush can’t get all of the nooks and crannies in between your teeth, but dental floss can. You should floss at least once a day to eliminate food particles and any plaque that has formed.

3.)    Regular dental checkups. See your dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning. Your dentist may also take X-rays to look for early signs of tooth decay.

4.)    Limit the sugar. Limit the amount of sugary foods and drinks you consume. Sugars stick to your teeth and lead to decay when bacteria feed on them. If you’re going to enjoy a sugary snack, be sure to brush right after.

5.)    Drink tap water. Bottled water may seem convenient, but it lacks a key ingredient for dental health: Fluoride. Tap water from most municipal systems contains fluoride, but bottled water does not contain enough to protect teeth.

Drinking tap water is best when it comes to healthier and stronger teeth. However, it is recommended that your water is filtered to protect you from other harmful contaminants that find its way through.

The Brita Riviera Smart Pitcher will reduce chlorine, taste, odor and sediment while leaving a healthy amount of Fluoride to promote stronger teeth. This water pitcher has a space-saving design, flip-top lid and an electronic filter change indicator for your convenience.

The Brita UltraMax Dispenser Water Filter holds up to 18 eight ounce glasses and comes with one Brita OB03 replacement filter. This Brita dispenser eliminates contaminants while leaving fluoride to promote healthier teeth. Each filter will filter 40 gallons of water and needs to be replaced an average of every two months.

Healthy teeth are the first step to a better smile. In honor of National Smile Month, remember to smile every day and make the world a better place.

National Water Quality Month: Do You Know Your Water Quality?

August is National Water Quality Month, a month where many will take a look at the quality of water they are drinking. Water is an essential part of life, but poor quality drinking water can be the source of many health-related issues, such as tuberculosis, salmonella and diarrhea. Fortunately, there are ways we can know the quality of our water.

One of the common ways to determine your water quality is the use of water test kits. The Complete Home Water Quality Test Kit, priced at under $40, is the best to use. This will test your water for over 13 contaminants including bacteria and copper. This kit includes two test strips for each contaminant and one test strip for bacteria.

Once you have tested your water for contaminants, how do you purify it? This is a task that may seem daunting, but the process doesn’t have to be.

One way to purify your water is through the use of UV lights. Disinfecting your drinking water with Ultraviolet lights is environmentally safe and proven to provide sterile drinking water. Ultraviolet filters use high frequency light to irradiate water through a glass element. Once the water is exposed to the light, all living organisms, such as bacteria, are destroyed.  The Inline Ultraviolet Sterilization Filter connects directly onto your 1/4″ water line to provide sterile drinking water by killing 99.9% of viruses and bacteria. This UV filter has a flow rate of 1 gallon per minute.

The 3M Aqua-Pure Water Filter Replacement is one of the best whole house water filter cartridges available. This filter features high flow rates up to 20 gallons per minute and reduces the unpleasant taste and odor of chlorine as well as sediment and other impurities.

The Whirlpool 4396710 is the new and improved filter for Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerators. This Whirlpool Refrigerator Water Filter reduces unpleasant taste, odor, scale buildup and more in your water and ice. You should replace this filter every six months or if your water has a foul odor and taste. For a complete list of refrigerator water filters, go to and type in “refrigerator water filters” in the search box.

This August, let’s take the necessary steps to ensure better quality of water in our homes.
