Poor dental hygiene can not only ruin your smile, it can also lead to serious health problems.
A frequent visit to the dentist and regular brushing can help prevent that from happening
Brush Your Teeth Properly
Brush your teeth at least twice a day to remove debris that’s left after eating, And when brushing, take note of the up and down, back and forth motion.
Make sure that the bristles of your brush get in contact with the tooth surface and also near the gum line.
Brushing may not be enough to remove food particles in your mouth. This is why flossing is very helpful.
Bristles can get to corners that your brush bristles or even your mouthwash wouldn’t be able to reach
Gargle With Mouthwash
Mouthwash is not a substitute for brushing and flossing but it could help keep your teeth clean and your breath fresh especially when you’re always on the go
Clean Your Tongue
Bacteria thriving on your tongue can lead to bad breath and can also be dangerous for your health.
When you brush your teeth, do brush your tongue too as well.
Have A Balanced Diet
Your teeth need calcium for it to stay strong. Same goes for vitamin D as well as vitamin C. So make sure to include fruits and veggies to your daily diet.
Limit Your Soda Intake
Soda has been proven as one of the main causes of teeth problems. Avoid soda as often as you can. Limit your consumption of soda to 1-2 glasses/week. Preferably none if you can
