We always neglect taking care of our teeth and think that brushing twice a day is enough. But, if you want to continue eating and chewing your food, then you must remember to keep them clean and strong. According to WHO, around 60-90 per cent school children and almost 90 per cent adults have dental cavities.

We all struggle with these problems. So let me give you a few tips to help you get the best smile. 

  1. Brush After Every Meal: 

You all know to brush twice a day. However it is better if you brush after every meal. Especially after you eat something sweet, stick or a heavy meal.Brushing after every meal will make sure there is no food stuck in your teeth. When teeth gets stuck in between your teeth and you do not brush, it leads to cavities. And over time the cavities get worse and will give many problems. When you do not brush often a sticky film starts building on your teeth. This is called  plaque and it contains lots of bacteria. So make sure you brush often 

for at least 2-minutes and take your time, moving the toothbrush in gentle, circular motions.

So try it and see for yourself. 

  1. Flossing:  

Many people are afraid of flossing and think it is not important. However it is extremely. Flossing helps to remove small food particles stuck between the teeth and helps to keep the gums healthy as well. At first it will be difficult, but as you keep doing it, you will see the difference and your teeth will be healthy. 

  1. Use a Mouthwash:  

Sometimes brushing and flossing also do not remove food particles that may be stuck in the teeth. When you use a mouthwash and gargle it removes food particles and also plaque stuck in your teeth. You should try to use a mouthwash after every time you brush. 

  1. Eat Fruits & Vegetables. 

When you eat Fruits & Vegetables, the mouth produces more saliva to help you chew. This saliva also helps to keep your teeth healthy and protect against bacteria. So make sure you eat fruits and veggies everyday. 

  1. Avoid Sugar & Beverages 

Sugar and beverages such as Tea, Coffee, Alcohol, Red Wine, Sodas, etc are very bad for your teeth. They make your teeth yellow and cause cavities. So avoid these to have stronger teeth. 

 

  1. Visit The Dentist
