Four dental care habits that are easy to follow and will make a difference in your dental health
1. BRUSHING REGULARLY
Start with brushing your teeth twice a day. It is recommended for both children and adults to do it twice daily. Why is that? Brushing is the best method to get rid of old food and bacteria off your teeth. So get brushing after brushing and dinner.
2. FLOSSING TWICE DAILY
And you thought flossing once a day was enough. Well, it isn’t. Flossing your teeth twice per day is the single most important thing you can for preventing cavities and gum disease. Keep in mind that has effective brushing your teeth can be with removing food debris, it cannot reach the small spaces in-between each tooth as flossing does. So get that silk out. If you experience bleeding, try a thinner floss and make an appointment with your dentist if it’s excessive.
3. GET REGULAR TEETH CLEANINGS
Even with all your brushing and flossing twice daily, it is inevitable that you will experience plaque build up and that is why regular professional teeth cleanings are must add-on to your standard dental hygiene routine.
4. HAVE CAVITIES ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY
When all fails and that you still find yourself having a cavity, don’t wait for it to get worse and turn into an infection. Nobody enjoys the sound of the drill but leaving a cavity untreated can cause a severe amount of discomfort, bad breath, oral damage and can become very costly when ignored. So don’t waste time.
