How to have Clean Teeth

A clean mouth helps to keep you healthy, it also gives you a great smile and boosts your confidence.

Clean Healthy Mouth

Having clean, white teeth starts with having a clean mouth.

It depends on two important components:

1. A healthy oral hygiene routine.

2. Whitening treatments.

Not only does a clean mouth help to keep you healthy, it also gives you a great smile and boosts your confidence. Here are a few important steps to include in your daily oral health routine.

Healthy Oral Hygiene

• Brush your teeth at least twice a day.

The first step to great oral hygiene is to brush your teeth regularly. When brushed properly it helps to prevent tooth and gum diseases and removes stains.

HEALTHY ORAL HYGIENE

• Use the correct toothpaste.

Using fluoridated toothpaste assists in preventing cavities.

• Replace your toothbrush every three months.

Toothbrushes become less effective over time and should be replaced every three months, or when the bristles bend over. Replacing your toothbrush is necessary to avoid the transfer of bacteria.

• Floss daily.

Flossing is a very important part of your daily oral hygiene, as it helps to remove those bacteria between your teeth, which your toothbrush cannot reach.

• Rinse with mouthwash.

Keep your mouth fresh by using a mouthwash that contains fluoride. Alcohol-free mouthwash is more beneficial as those containing alcohol dries out your mouth, making it easier for bacteria to grow.

• Clean your tongue.

The biggest cause of bad breath is when bacteria build up on your tongue. Use a tongue scraper to remove all the plaque.

Whitening Treatments

Most people think it is easier to make use of home-whitening-products. Although it is convenient, it might not always be the wisest.

• See your dentist first.

The discoloring of your teeth might be due to an oral disease, not just because of food stains. Therefore, an appointment with your dentist is vital before you start with home remedies.

• Use whitening toothpaste.

Whitening toothpaste does not work as quickly as other whitening products but are gentler on your teeth. It uses a polish rather than other chemicals to remove unwanted stains.

Maintaining Good Teeth Health

Taking proper care of your teeth is an important part of taking care of your overall health. To maintain this health, make sure you maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine and visit your dentist at least twice a year.
