ways to keep your teeth healthy always.
Drink enough water

You might be wondering why this is here but drinking enough water has been proven to help get rid of wastes from the body system. In the same way, water especially when used to rinse the water after eating helps to flush down hidden food particles around the teeth and in other parts of the mouth.

Reduce intake of sugar and acidic foods

Acidic content in the mouth can wash away the tooth enamel. Sugar converts in the mouth to acids which can then lead to cavities. Starchy foods like bread, chips, cracker have also been found to be a cause of tooth decay. You may not need to stop eating these totally but reducing the intake can be of benefit to you.

Floss once a day

What is flossing? Flossing is cleaning the area between the teeth which is usually unreachable by the toothbrush. It is done using a thread like or thin material called “Floss” or “Dental Floss”. Flossing helps you to reach areas your toothbrush cannot get to and remove all the stuck food particles and plaques. Plaques are sticky substances that form on the teeth, they can cause decay of tooth if they stay for so long.

Flossing has other benefits like helping to stimulate the teeth gums and reducing inflammation around the area.

Pay attention to your tongue

Don’t ignore your tongue when brushing your teeth, make sure you brush your tongue gently also. It is also possible for plaques to store on your tongue. They can cause terrible odour for your mouth and even other teeth problems.

Stop smoking

Smoking can cause disease for the gum. It begins with bacteria that forms under the gum and can lead to gum disease. It also gives the mouth bad odour and colours the teeth.

Reduce or stop taking alcohol

The bad effect of alcohol on the teeth is primarily caused by it’s content of sugar. Alcohol also causes dryness in the mouth and increases the risks of gum disease and cavities. It can also cause unpleasant odour if the mouth is not properly washed after.

Brush your teeth regularly

I saved this for the last because I know it’s something you’ve heard and read several times before. This however does not make it less important. In fact, without it, you cannot keep your teeth healthy in any way.
In brushing, carefully choose a brush that won’t injure your enamel. Avoid a scrubbing or sawing motion, take it circular, back and forth gently to allow it get to all surfaces of the teeth. It should take you two to three minutes to complete this process. Do not forget to brush the tongue gently also. Brush at least twice a day.

The above tips are for adults and should be taken seriously if you want to keep your teeth healthy. Also avoid taking too much of soft drinks, candies, chocolates, sweets etc. You can take carrots and apples because saliva is produced when chewing them and this encourages the teeth protection.

Do not forget to see your dentist if you are having health issues. Don’t do self medication.
