What Are the Best Ways to Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Mouth is the window to your overall health. It helps us chew food and make the digestion easier. That does not end here. Teeth help speak fluently, pronounce different sounds and last but not the least they create a

good looking smile and maintain the shape of our face.

Here are some great ways to care for your teeth

1.Floss before brushing:-

Flossing is important to remove plaque and several harmful bacteria. Brushing alone is not helpful. You should floss your teeth to prevent bacterial growth and protect your teeth.

2.Use Mouthwash:-

Alongwith brushing and flossing, mouthwash helps your teeth too. Use it to have a good breath and greater confidence.

3.Sugarfree Chewing Gum:-

When you eat or chew sugary things such as gum, you might be causing problems for your teeth. Eating too much

chocolate might not be good for your teeth. You should get sugarfree gum and chew it to help prevent cavities.

4.Use Fluoride:-

Fluoride helps protect your teeth because it helps create stronger enamel on your teeth. Bacteria attack the enamel of your teeth so having stronger enamel helps protect your teeth. Toothpaste with fluoride helps protect your teeth.

5.Use Sealants:-

Sealants protect your back region of the teeth which can be the favorite place of bacteria in your mouth. Sealants combined with regular brushing can help protect your

teeth.

6.Visit your dentist regularly:-

You should not be lazy about seeing your dentist regularly. Early stage dental problems are much easier and cheaper to fix than later stage problems. You should see your dentist twice a year so you can catch the problems during early symptoms.
