Making excellent oral hygiene a habit is enough to avert most oral health diseases. Oral hygiene should be apart of your lifestyle and a frequent activity. A daily routine of oral care is necessary to clean the tooth of food bits or debris and plaque.
Keeping your mouth clean and healthy is simple and straightforward. Experts recommend brushing twice daily using a soft or medium toothbrush with peanut-sized toothpaste. Brushing should be gentle on the teeth and not vigorous.
Flossing should be done at least once per day.
When brushing your teeth, you should also remember to clean your palate and tongue. Doing this before going to bed will help lessen the build-up of microorganism in the mouth.
Once daily, wash your mouth with antimicrobial or mouthwash containing fluoride.
Also, don’t forget to change your toothbrush every three months.
Eat healthily, reducing the number of sugary foods and drinks. Aerated and sour beverages also do your teeth more harm than good. They erode your teeth and make it sensitive.
At least once in six months, book an appointment with the dentist for a regular checkup and professional polishing and scaling of your teeth.
Paying regular visits to your dentist when you detect any minor discomfort, discoloration, or inflammation will aid early detection of severe issues before they worsen. Your dentist will also be able to recommend precautions or practices for better oral health.
Prevention, we know is better than cure. Simple routines like these eliminate potential oral health issues and consequently avert expensive dental procedures in the future.
