In this day and age, there is little excuse for poor dental health. However, many people still turn up to their annual dental check up only to discover a cavity.
By eating well, brushing twice daily and regularly flossing, we can ensure our teeth are healthy for life.
Here are some helpful tips for maintaining proper dental health.
First of all, you should use a small, soft toothbrush and a good brushing technique to clean your teeth twice each day. If you are unsure about the best brushing technique, it is a circular method. Get further clarity by speaking with your dentist.
Use fluoride toothpaste, because this battles the decay process and aids enamel in fighting off acid.
Minimise the amount of sugary foods you consume. If you must consume sugary foods, brush your teeth straight afterwards to avoid damage.
Remember that it is not too late to get orthodontic treatment – it is not just for teenagers. Speak to your dentist or schedule an appointment with an orthodontist for more information.
Having the correct bite and tooth structure is very important and goes a long way to reaching good dental health.
