All of us know that smile makes our personality vibrant and attractive but very few people know that a good oral health results in a beautiful smile. Just believe me you can get it by simply keeping track of your habits .Now guys I am going to disclose you tips for healthy teeth and beautiful smile:
1. Brush – Brush but don’t Rush
Brushing reduces the oral micro flora in your mouth and removes food particle from the tooth surfaces and gums thereby preventing tooth decay.Brush twice a day for 2 minutes with a soft bristles toothbrush.
2. Rinse away all your germs using Mouthwash
Mouthwash can combat bad breath and also play an important role as they reach out areas where you brush cannot reach .Mouthwash reduces tooth decay and gum inflammation . They can also whiten teeth using a bleaching agent as well as remove plaque from your mouth.
3. No No Don’t Forget Tongue Scrapers
Yeah ! You read it right – tongue scrapers are awesome way to keep germs and bacteria at bay . Even after brushing your teeth twice daily the whole mouth is not clean without cleaning your tongue. If the tongue is not cleaned on a daily basis then it harbors microorganism which can be very harmful for your health. So make sure you use tongue scrapers on a daily basis.
4. Visit your Tooth- Savior(Dentist)
You should visit dentist every 6 months -you have heard it so many times but you are not able to follow as you feel its just a free advice but Let me tell you the reasons behind it through examples from my dental practice- People generally ignore their teeth unless they got a toothache and sensitivity but there are so many hidden cavities inside your mouth which can be diagnosed only by dentist .Receding gums and many other oral anomalies can be diagnosed at earlier stages if you visit your dentist regularly.
5. FLOSS AS YOUR TOOTH WILL GLOSS
Flossing & Inter dental Brushes-
Flossing is important as brushing just cleans 3 surfaces of your tooth but there are five surfaces and the other 2 surfaces are cleaned by flossing.It keeps gums healthy and remove plaque between the teeth thereby promoting overall health.
6.Eat right for your Healthy teeth-
White foods like all purpose flour, sugar are sticky in nature and can cause bacteria in your mouth by sticking to your teeth.So avoid them and fill your plate with fresh fruits and vegetables as they are fibrous in nature and provide you with nutrients so overall good for your health.Candies and chocolates are to be avoided as they stick to the tooth surface for a long time and sugar content makes them a playground for bacteria.Say no to carbonated drinks as they remove the enamel (Top layer of the tooth).Keep yourself and your teeth healthy by eating right.
7. Your Best Friend: FLOURINE
