This is our collection of wisdom after many years of seeing patients struggle to stay on top of good oral health and reap the benefits of a beautiful smile. See what you can incorporate into your daily oral hygiene routine.

Tips to Help You Avoid Dental Problems in The Future

With a consistently good oral hygiene routine, you can avoid fillings. Use a soft toothbrush and gently brush your teeth thirty minutes after eating or drinking. Twice a day is ideal. Brush your teeth for two minutes at each session. Make sure to use fluoride-containing toothpaste, and don't neglect to brush your tongue. Bacteria can hide in the grooves of your tongue and affect your teeth and gums. Rinse your mouth with a fluoride-containing mouthwash to avoid developing cavities.

Be careful what you put in your mouth. Too much soda and coffee will make the atmosphere in your mouth acidic, which could accelerate tooth decay. In addition, these beverages also stain your teeth. Consider eating healthy foods and beverages. Avoid foods that get stuck in between your teeth. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables daily to nourish your body as well as supply vital nutrients to your teeth and gums.
