by Dr Marianna Ibrahim Primary Dental Care

 Taking very good care of your teeth is a lifetime process. It is crucial to maintain and take the right steps to take care of your teeth and prevent problems. Besides getting the right oral care products, you also need to be mindful of your daily habits. Healthier teeth make it easy for you to eat well and enjoy your food.


Many problems can affect the health of your mouth like tooth decay, gum diseases, etc, but you have an option to take care of your teeth and gums to keep them strong as you age. Good oral hygiene habits include brushing twice a day and having regular Anaheim dental checkups. Without treatment can lead to pain, problems with self-confidence, and tooth loss. The following are some best practices that can help to keep your teeth and gums healthy.


1: Gently brush regularly

It is very well known to everyone that brushing your teeth twice a day is a very important practice to remove bacteria and plaque and keep teeth clean. But at the same time brushing can be effective if people use the correct technique. Brush in a smaller circular motion, take care to brush the front, back, and top of each tooth. Take a brush that is not too hard as using a hard-bristled toothbrush can damage tooth enamel and the gums.


2: Flossing is also important

Brushing alone doesn't reach the space between your teeth. So, you need dental floss to clean these areas. Take a piece of floss and wrap each and around your middle finger. Using your thumbs and four fingers guide the floss between two teeth. Clean it using about 10 up and down strokes. Keep containing this process on all of your teeth.


3: Keep changing your brush

You need to replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months after recovering from an illness. You can find a color indicator reminder on the bristles of the most manual and electric toothbrushes. If you're a parent, you also need to keep checking on your kids more often to change their toothbrushes, the more excited they will be to do it.


4: Using mouthwash and gum in your routine

Flossing and brushing your teeth twice a day may not be good enough. Along with this, you can rinse your teeth with an antimicrobial mouthwash that helps to kill more oral bacteria. It is also advisable to chew sugar-free gum that helps to reduce the number of bacteria in your mouth and stimulates salivary flow.


Healthy dental teeth begin with you. These are some simple tips that can help you to keep your mouth clean and healthy. Also, make sure to visit your dental doctor regularly as often as they recommend.
