It is always easier to prevent disease than to treat it. The same strategy works for dental health. Fortunately, there are a few rules that you can follow to avoid frequent visits to the dentist and keep your teeth healthy.

We collected here some well-known tips that will keep your smile brilliant and healthy.

1. Oral hygiene

Even if you are short of  time to go to a professional dental cleaning regularly, there is a way to reduce the necessity to do that. It is very important to know how to brush teeth. Brush your teeth with vertical moves, starting at the gumline. Don’t forget to brush your tongue.  Moreover, avoid aggressive movements of the brush and excessive pressure on the teeth, as this can damage the integrity of the tooth enamel.

After meals, rinse your mouth with a special mouthwash, and use floss at least twice a day.

2. How to choose toothbrush

Your toothbrush should be of the softness at which you feel comfortable brushing your teeth. For some people, soft bristles are enough; for some, only stiff bristles are appropriate. Consult your dentist to evaluate your teeth and enamel and figure out what kind of toothbrush is right for you.

4. Be careful with abrasive toothpaste

There are many whitening toothpastes available, but you should use them thoroughly. We recommend using abrasive (whitening) toothpaste once or twice a week.

5. Use Fluoride

In fact, irritation in the corners of the lips from fluoride-containing products is very common. This happens due to the intolerance of this element. Nevertheless, fluoride is one of the most important elements that is responsible for protecting our teeth from cavities. That’s why it’s best to buy care products with fluoride content of 1,500 ppm or less.

6. Gum care

What is more, gum cleaning is also an important factor, because gum tissue protects teeth from bacteria. The gums are also responsible for the stability and strength of the tooth.

That is why you should pay special attention to your gums and use herbal pastes and rinses that help to strengthen them.

7. Good nutrition for teeth

Nutrition for teeth

It is no secret that nutrition affects all systems of our body and health in general. We are what we eat, and that is the truth. By following a few simple rules, you can keep your teeth from further damage:

  • Include maximum amount of vitamins and substances to your diet, your body needs fiber, iron, proteins, fats and even carbohydrates.
  • Include to your daily ration such food as carrots, apples, etc. Surprisingly, soft berries, strawberries are good for tooth brushing – they are a natural whitener, but be careful not to spoil the enamel.
  • Eat food with calcium. The highest concentration of this substance is found in such products as cottage cheese, cheese, green vegetables, nuts, etc.
  • Avoid strong acids that can destroy tooth enamel (lemons, lime, rosehips). 
  • If you are a sweet tooth and cannot imagine your life without candies, there is a way out. At the moment, there is a perfect natural sweetener – isomalt. It not only does not spoil the enamel of the teeth, but also helps to restore it.

8. Abrupt temperature changes

Please, remember that temperature changes negatively affect the tooth enamel and contribute to tooth sensitivity. Therefore, you should avoid hot and cold foods and drinks.

9. Exercise for teeth

Yes, it is true, your teeth can be exercised too. This technique came from China: boil water, cool it to room temperature, then fill your mouth with water and move the water inside your mouth by the cheek muscles. This way you will increase blood circulation to your gums and give an excellent gum massage.

10. Visiting the dentist

And, of course, you should not forget about the treatment and hygienic cleaning of teeth by professionals. If you follow the above rules, professional dental cleaning can be done once a year. However, you should not completely rule it out.
