Have you ever thought that simple daily care routine will pave way for healthy dentition.
Yes, it does!
Brushing Twice A Day
Our salivary flow decreases at night which leads to more bacterial activity and thus dental problems. Brushing your teeth in the morning freshens up your breathe whereas brushing your teeth at night keeps you away from Dental caries and gum disease.
Do Not Forget To Clean your Tongue
Cleaning your tongue is an integral part of Oral Care Routine. It serves as a site for bacterial multiplication which leads to Halitosis (Bad Breath). Cleaning your tongue helps to keep you away from bad breath.
Use Fluoride Toothpaste
Fluoride is known as an AntiCaries agent. It prevents tooth decay by increasing the process of remineralisation.
A gentle flossing between the teeth not less than 2 minutes for the entire dentition will help you save your teeth from cavities that happen in between your teeth.
Consider Mouth Rinse
Using a mouth rinse after your food helps in washing away of food debris, reduces bacterial load, and prevent bad breath. However prolonged use of mouth rinse can cause staining of teeth. Warm water with dissolved rock salt can be considered as an alternative for a daily and prolonged use.
Drink More Water
Drinking more water helps you keep hydrated and maintains the salivary flow. People who work in air conditioned environment are more prone to dry mouth condition. Taking a sip of water in between helps you stay hydrated and healthy.
Munching on Crunchy Fruits and Vegetables
Munching on crunchy fruits and vegetables helps in healthy dentition. It helps to swipe away the plaque and in addition the Vitamin C content in them makes the gum healthy.
Limit Sugary and Acidic Intake
The sugars and aerated drinks lower the pH in the mouth which leads to dissolution of calcium from the teeth leading to various dental problems.
Regular Dental Checkup
A regular dental check up at least twice a year helps in treating dental problems if any at the earliest.
