Good cleaning of the teeth is something that one is taught at his / her tender age. This is so because for you to maintain healthy teeth, you must ensure that you observe proper dental hygiene for a suitable amount of time.
The repercussions of not observing good dental hygiene can be manifested if not now but in the near future when you will start having problems with your teeth.
One of the simplest but a basic fact for good dental hygiene is brushing, brushing your teeth is the easiest way to maintain a healthy mouth and teeth and one of the ways to ensure that your teeth stay healthy as always.
It is required that you brush your teeth a minimum of two times daily if not three ie immediately after you have your breakfast or even after grabbing a snack during lunch hours this will ensure that you keep your healthy teeth. Make sure you brush using a fluoride toothpaste for complete protection, you can ensure in between your teeth are clean by flossing them, these ensures that the food particles do not accumulate in between the teeth to provide a good bacterial breeding ground.
These are not only the ways that you can ensure that your mouth stays clean and healthy free from halitosis there are other ways you can do this.
Very few people are aware on the importance of chewing gum; chewing gum is one of the best way to keep the mouth clean since it increases the production of saliva in the mouth enabling neutralization of the plaque acid which would otherwise corrode the teeth. Ensure the chewing gum that you chew is sugar free since sugar is responsible for corrosion of teeth.
Reduce your sugar intake; This is by reducing the frequency of eating sugary foods and drinks. Taking sugary drinks when taken between meals at meal time reduces the chances of the teeth being cleaned by the saliva.
If you observe this you will always be smiling with clean healthy teeth.
