Dental Health

1. Brush your teeth Twice a Day and Brush Properly to maintain oral hygiene

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time.
  • Pay attention to all surfaces of your teeth, including the front, back, and chewing surfaces.
  • Brush gently in circular motions to remove plaque and debris.
  • Don't forget to brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.

You should brush your teeth for at least two minutes each time you brush. This duration allows enough time to thoroughly clean all surfaces of your teeth, including the front, back, and chewing surfaces.

2. Flossing

  • Flossing is essential for cleaning the areas between your teeth that a toothbrush can't reach.
  • Use about 18 inches of dental floss and wind it around your middle fingers, leaving a couple of inches to work with.
  • Gently slide the floss between your teeth using a back-and-forth motion, curving it around each tooth in a C shape.
  • Be careful not to snap the floss, as it can harm your gums.
  • Clean both sides of each tooth and under the gumline.
Dental Floss

If you don't floss regularly, you may experience several problems for your dental health such as Bad Breath , Plaque build up, Gum Diseases and increased risk of cavities. Flossing helps remove plaque from between your teeth and along the gumline. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. If left plaque can harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional.

3. Avoid / Limit Sugary & Acidic foods for better oral hygiene

  • Limit your intake of sugary foods and drinks, such as sodas, candies, and desserts.
  • Consuming too much sugar can lead to tooth decay and cavities.
  • Acidic foods and beverages, like citrus fruits and carbonated drinks, can erode tooth enamel. Consume them in moderation and rinse your mouth with water afterward.

4. Practise well rounded Oral Care Routine

  • Besides brushing and flossing, additional oral care practices can enhance your dental hygiene.
  • Consider using an antimicrobial mouthwash to kill bacteria and freshen your breath.
  • Use fluoride mouthwash or toothpaste to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities.
  • Consider using a tongue scraper to remove bacteria from your tongue.
  • Maintain a balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and calcium-rich foods for strong teeth and gums.

5.Visit your dentist regularly
