Your smile is your best accessory. It is no doubt that pearly white and straight teeth can boost your self-confidence. Taking care of your teeth is important and allows for less of those dreaded visits to the dentist. We all know that if you don’t brush your teeth regularly, your teeth will look yellow and dirty. This is due to the food debris, staining, plaque and tartar that build up over time. Ultimately your teeth will not look aesthetically pleasing and bad oral hygiene results in bad breath. No one wants bad breath. We are becoming more aware and conscious about our own appearance as well as others. The focus on dentistry is becoming more prominent. We all want white, sparkly straight teeth, but the focus should be more so on keeping your mouth healthy. Having great looking teeth and keeping up with excellent oral health should go hand in hand. Adopting great oral hygiene will help keep your mouth (teeth and gums) healthy.

Let’s firstly get into the nitty gritty by going back to the basics. Simple steps including making sure you thoroughly brush your teeth twice a day will help keep your teeth clean. On average, the amount of time spent brushing teeth is only 20 seconds. When you think about it, 20 seconds is a very short time. It is definitely not enough time to thoroughly clean your teeth. It is recommended to brush for two minutes. Brushing your teeth for two minutes will effectively remove plaque from your teeth. Not only do you have to brush your teeth, but is it also important to brush your gums. Keeping your gums healthy prevents problems such as gum disease. Just like any other product, your toothbrush wears down over time. Using your toothbrush daily wears the bristles down makes it less effective when brushing your teeth. It is recommended that you change your toothbrush regularly every three months. Surprisingly, statistics show that most people brush their teeth only once a day. Most people also brush too hard and for a short amount of time. Doing so, does not remove all the plaque from your teeth. For those who are unsure, plaque is a made up of bacteria and food particles that stick to your teeth. In order to remove the plaque, your teeth must be brushed thoroughly before it detaches from the tooth surface. Any plaque that is not removed will begin to solidify (due to the minerals in your saliva). This creates a hard layer called tartar or calculus. Tartar is firmly stuck to your teeth and can be removed by a dentist or oral hygienist. The build-up of plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Another step to you can take to effectively clean your teeth is to floss every day. Not many of us floss. Most of us may see it as an extra chore and too much of an effort after we brush our teeth. We may find flossing a tedious task and skip that step all together. But regular flossing can further help prevent problems. Brushing and flossing your teeth is crucial if you want to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Flossing is essential because your toothbrush cannot reach in between your teeth. This is where the majority of food debris and plaque accumulates. It is recommended to floss once a day after your last meal or before you go to sleep. Flossing ensures that there aren’t food debris and plaque sitting between your teeth overnight. Making sure to remember to floss is an important part of good oral hygiene. There are many benefits to flossing. This includes having cleaner teeth to prevent cavities and other tooth problems and it can even prevent bad breath. Using mouthwash after brushing and flossing your teeth can be an extra step you can to take for that extra minty fresh breath.

Tooth decay is another tooth problem we all want to avoid. When it comes to our teeth, being able to bite into our food and chew without any problems can be taken for granted. Some people suffer from tooth loss because of the lack of care for their teeth. Cleaning your teeth and removing the plaque and bacteria is an excellent start to prevent tooth decay. However, there are other factors that can contribute to the health of your teeth. The best ways to prevent tooth decay as already mentioned before is to practice good oral hygiene. Eating a healthy diet consisting of food packed with nutrients will greatly keep your teeth healthy. We understand that you may have a sweet tooth. But your love for sweets can contribute to tooth decay. Treating yourself once in a while with cake or chocolate is completely fine. However, excessive sugar consumption will greatly affect your teeth. There are a number of other reasons that lead to tooth decay. Poor nutrition and lack of minerals, stress, toxins, and inflammation contributes to tooth decay. Lack of exercise and poor circulation also negatively impacts your teeth. It is important to keep a healthy lifestyle and exercise to keep your whole body in functional working order. In order to prevent tooth decay and cavities, it is important to consider all factors. Take a comprehensive approach by focusing on your diet and choosing good lifestyle choices.
