9 Tips On How To Keep Your Teeth Healthy

2767

Beautiful and strong teeth are not a dream but quite attainable goal. You can keep your teeth in the perfect condition without extra expenses or massive efforts. All you need to do is to follow our nine key tips.

Teeth

  1. You need to brush not only your teeth but also your tongue and cheeks because germs gather in these areas too.
  2. Change your toothbrush 2 or 3 times a month.
  3. Change your tooth paste regularly because your body gets used to a certain set of active ingredients and stops responding over time.
  4. Brush your teeth before breakfast in the morning and before bed in the evening.
  5. Make it a rule to gargle your throat thoroughly after each meal, especially after eating sweet or sour food. You can use plain water for this.
  6. Use a tooth thread to remove food leftovers. Toothpick can injure mouth mucosa.
  7. You can also use chewing gum after meal. The chewing gum absorbs toxins and removes soft plaque accumulation. Just make sure you don’t chew it more than 15 minutes.
  8. Use antibacterial rinse if possible.
  9. Buy an oral irrigator. It helps to clean spaces between teeth and dentogingival areas effectively. Intense pulsing spurts of water massage the gums, improving blood flow.

Right Food for Healthy Teeth

Our teeth need a lot of calcium. This chemical element makes the enamel strong. Calcium-rich foods are diary products, fish, beans, beet and spinach. The water we drink and use to cook our meals is also important. Take a note of this.

You need to train your teeth to make them strong. Eat solid vegetables and fruit regularly. Bite on carrots and apples.

Unhealthy Beverages

What is unhealthier for your teeth, tea or coffee? Actually, either, as well as berry juices, red wine and other beverages with coloring pigments. However, they don’t harm teeth enamel and color just dental plaque. What’s really harmful is soda drinks. They contain orthophosphoric acid that “gnaws” at teeth enamel.

Dental Care

Even healthy teeth need some dental care from time to time. That is provided by hygiene dentists. They provide tooth cleaning, remove dental stones and coat the teeth with special protection which can work for, at least, half a year. But it’s not recommended to whiten your teeth with hydrogen peroxide products much too often, because this kind of treatment affects the strength of teeth.
