An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but that’s not always enough.
Your dental health is very important -more than you know. Having excellent dental hygiene is not only beneficial to you, it makes you less offensive to other people. So, if your significant other keeps avoiding your kiss, or your friends talk to you from a distance, it could be a dental issue.
Here are a few tips to support your beautiful smile with healthy teeth!
- Use Fluoride Toothpaste
Fluoride protects your teeth from decaying by hardening your enamel. It also helps to keep your breath fresh.
- Brush Thoroughly
When cleaning your mouth, brush in circular motions or up and down movements.
The reason for this is, our teeth have horizontal lines where food and germs could hide, so brushing sideways would not clean it all.
Spend between two to three minutes brushing your teeth. Focus mostly on brushing your tongue because that’s where the bad breath sticks and the inner parts of the upper and lower compartments of your teeth.
- Brush Twice a day
Now that we have shown you how to brush properly, brush at least twice in 24 hours.
If this is done consistently, you would notice a reasonable difference in your dental health.
- Avoid Oral Injuries
Oral injuries introduce blood in the mouth and stale blood introduces germs, making your gum rotten. So in any case of injuries, you must seek a health practitioner’s advice or help.
- Watch Who You Kiss
You can’t trust the next person’s personal hygiene which is why noticing their breath is critical. A person’s hygiene will always tell from their breath. You don’t want any of those infections transferred into your mouth and the truth is bad breath will always be transferred through kissing.
- Avoid Sugary and Acidic Foods
Bacteria in the mouth change sugar into acids and acids dissolve into the tooth enamel causing cavities and tooth decay.
- Stay Hydrated
The point is to keep the fluids and saliva in your mouth flowing and moving. We all know any liquid that is stagnant or stale stinks.
- Keep Foreign Objects Out
Avoid using your teeth to do things other than eating like opening a soda bottle or tearing food wrappers because they introduce germs into your gums. If you must put your hands in your mouth, make sure they are washed thoroughly.
If any of these tips do not improve your dental health, please do not hesitate to consult your nearest health practitioner.
Your beautiful smile should be anchored by healthy teeth!
