Healthy Teeth • Everyone wants to feel more confident in their smile and breath. • By taking care of your teeth, you can keep your teeth healthy and your breath fresh. • Good thing is, you will not have to spend a fortune as tools you need are available at home. • It only takes looking into your dental hygiene habits and making adjustments where you deem necessary.
Choose The Right Brush • Does your brush feel heavy that you get easily tired using it? • Do the bristles feel too stiff your gums hurt each time you brush? • It's essential that you feel comfortable with the toothbrush you're using so you can brush properly. • Check yours today and gauge if you already feel okay with it. Also, note that changing toothbrush should be done within 3 or 4 months. • A frayed brush will no longer do its job of cleaning your teeth well.
Brush Properly • Are you always in a rush when brushing your teeth? When you're in a hurry, chances are you only end up cleaning the prominent parts of your teeth. • When you brush properly, you will not have to brush as often or as long as you usually do. You can keep your mouth clean for a longer period. • Rethink your brushing habits and allot at least 30 seconds on each of the sides of your mouth - upper left, lower left, upper right, and lower right. Gently brush in different directions, circling through the surface of your teeth. • Don't forget to brush your tongue. The tongue is where bad breath-causing bacteria linger so when you brush your tongue, you also get to avoid bad breath.
Floss The Right Way • Many forgo flossing their teeth. Dental flosses however help you clean parts of your teeth that your toothbrush can no longer reach. • For you to get the most benefit out of flossing, do not just floss up and down, gently pull the floss toward your teeth and cup the surfaces. • In case flosses are not available or if your teeth are close together you struggle using flosses, you can use toothpicks instead.
Don't Forget To Rinse • Antibacterial mouthwash kills harmful bacteria that cause plaque and cavities. • When you are out and are unable to brush your teeth, make it a point to at least rinse your mouth properly with a mouthwash especially after eating sweets. • Most important, visit your dentist once in a while so you can have your teeth checked and so you can as well seek professional advice to keeping your mouth healthy.
