You Can Take Care Of Your Teeth

Have you ever felt pain in one of your teeth? If you have, you understand how uncomfortable and annoying it can be. Having good oral health is vital to avoid pain and future problems and because your mouth is one of the parts of your body that you use the most: to eat, speak, and even participate in your digestion!

Taking care of our teeth is an endless responsibility if we want a nice and healthy smile. To take good care of your oral health, you need to mind the hygiene products you use and be wary of your daily habits.

At DH Smile Center, we made a shortlist of the basics to take care of your teeth to have a healthy mouth:

  1. Brush your teeth, especially at night: the overall recommendation is to brush your teeth at least twice a day, but you must brush them before going to sleep to eliminate the germs and plaque you accumulated during the day.

  2. Brush your tongue as well: plaque can accumulate in your tongue too. Having plaque can lead to having a bad mouth odor and other oral health problems.

  3. Floss: brushing your teeth is not enough to keep your mouth healthy. Dental plaque tends to form and accumulate in between your teeth, where the brush can’t reach, so to complete the oral hygiene, you have to floss to eliminate the rest of the food stuck in your teeth.

  4. Use mouthwash: Mouthwash is not strictly necessary to have good oral hygiene, but it does help to clean your teeth and gums in spots where the brush can’t reach, it also reduces the amount of acid in your mouth, and it remineralizes teeth.

  5. Drink more water: have a glass of water after every meal! Besides hydrating your body, it will wash out acids from foods and beverages and thus keep your teeth healthier.

  6. Visit your dentist: You need to have a dental appointment for cleanings and checkups at least twice a year. Regularly visiting your dentist is the best way to keep a beautiful and healthy smile.

Taking care of your teeth can be really easy. Following these recommendations will ensure good oral health, but the most crucial part is visiting your dentist.
