Hopefully these Barbiecore oral hygiene products inspire you to “think pink” and put some fun into your current dental care routine. After all, who said dental hygiene has to be boring?! Here are some tips for a Barbie-perfect brushing and flossing routine:
- Time it Right: Just like Barbie takes the time to pick out the perfect outfit, make sure you brush for a full 2 minutes.
- Replace Regularly: Replace your toothbrush every 3 months or sooner if the bristles are frayed or you get sick.
- Consistency is Key: Much like Barbie’s consistently impeccable fashion sense, make sure you floss all of your teeth at least once per day for optimal oral health.
Besides brushing and flossing daily, also be sure to schedule your regular dental cleaning and exam appointments. Routine cleanings, X-rays and exams are an essential component to maintaining your oral health. Remember, a smile is always your best accessory, and your dental professional team at Gallery57Dental can make sure that yours always shines the brightest!
