Your oral hygiene is probably not what comes to mind when you watch Star Wars.
However, healthy teeth and gums are always on our minds, so we’d like to share some bits of dental wisdom from a few of our favorite Star Wars quotes:
“Do or do not…there is no try.” – Yoda
Commit to brushing two times a day, flossing once a day, and staying regular with your cleanings and checkups at Fireweed Family Dentistry. There’s no substitute for these essential preventive actions!
“Your eyes can deceive you; don’t trust them.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi
Your teeth might look clean after you brush them, but don’t be fooled – brushing alone only cleans about 60% of your teeth’s surfaces. Flossing is a must!
“It’s a trap.” – Admiral Ackbar
Food debris trapped between teeth results in the buildup of plaque, which can lead to cavities, bad breath, and gum disease if left untreated. Brushing and flossing are two of your best weapons against this!
“Luminous beings are we.” – Yoda
Let your true luminosity shine through your smile!
