How Can You Maintain The Best Oral Hygiene?

The following tips are essential to properly care for our teeth and gums, and keep them healthy:

  • Ensure you brush your teeth and floss properly daily
  • Make regular visits to your dentist for checkups
  • Also, visit your hygienist regularly for professional teeth cleaning and proper oral hygiene recommendations
  • Ensure you eat a well-balanced diet, and stay away from food and drinks that could easily stain your teeth.
  • Clean your mouth thoroughly; use mouthwash regularly, and ensure you clean your tongue also, especially while brushing.
  • Stop smoking; it stains your teeth and also affects the health of your teeth and gums.

How Can Bad Oral Hygiene Lead To Health Problems?

Failing to brush your teeth and floss daily correctly could lead to various dental problems, such as bad breath, tooth decay, or the development of deep cavities in your tooth.

Research has also shown that beyond these dental problems, poor dental hygiene could also be a significant risk factor in the development of severe health problems like heart disease and Alzheimer's disease.

Keep your teeth clean by brushing and flossing twice daily. Brush one side of your mouth correctly before moving to the other, and ensure you brush all tooth surfaces —use fluoride toothpaste, and smear only a bit on your toothbrush. Brush gently so that you do not damage your teeth and gums.
