Take Care of Your Teeth   



Take Care of Your Teeth

 
Just like your face and body, your pearly whites take care too.
Million–dollars miles aren't exclusive to Hollywood celebrities - you can have one too! All it takes is good oral hygiene practice and the discipline to maintain the habit.

Back to basics
Good oral hygiene prevents the build up of plaque and tartar, which cause gum disease and tooth decay (caries).
For best results, your oral hygiene ritual should involve the following three steps:

Step 1: Brush. Brushing twice a day removes food residue, massages your gums and eliminates plaque from the surface of your teeth. Use a soft-bristled brush and a fluoride toothpaste.

Step 2: Floss. Regular flossing is your best defence against gum disease, cavities and decay. It removes food residue and bacteria that accumulate in the spaces between your teeth and under your gum line, where your brush can't reach. So, don't skip this step!

Step 3: Visit your dentist. Your dentist thoroughly examines your teeth and gums for any problems, removes tartar and polishes your teeth surfaces to make it harder for plaque and tartar to adhere to them.

Beating bad breath
Bad breath is caused by various factors, from the foods we consume to our daily hygiene and general health.
It can happen to the best of us, but solutions are at hand. Try these:

Use a mouth rinse. Your mouth produces less saliva - and more bacteria-at night. So, gargle daily with an antiseptic mouth wash before going to bed.

Brush your tongue. Yes, your tongue! You can buy a plastic tongue scraper from pharmacies or use your brush to get rid of odour causing bacteria from its surface.

Chew gum. Try chewing sugar free gum after each meal. This encourages the production of saliva, hampering bacterial build-up.

Stay hydrated. Stale breath can be due to dehydration. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day to avoid this.

Quit smoking. Cigarettes dry your mouth and leave an unpleasant smell.
