Regular teeth brushing, flossing and tongue cleaning helps to keep your mouth clean and teeth healthy. In addition, it helps to improve the condition of your oral health and prevent your smile form gum disease and tooth decay. Did you know that gum disease is one of the most common reasons of tooth loss in adults?
If you would like to have beautiful and healthy teeth throughout your life we would recommend visiting your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and having your teeth scaled and polished by a professional dental hygienist.
Other things that may help you keep your smile healthy is reducing the consumption of sugary, salty and acidy foods and drinks. Improving your diet and keeping sugary treats only for meal times can vastly improve your oral health.
It is vital to get into a regular habit of cleaning your teeth. We recommend brushing your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes. What toothpaste should you use? You don’t need to buy expensive toothpaste to make your teeth healthy. All you need is to make sure that your toothpaste has fluoride in it.
In order to prevent teeth from erosion brush them either before or an hour after eating or drinking acidy drinks such as juice or wine. Don’t forget to change your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months and visit Brite Dental for dental check-ups!
