7 Simple Tips For Great Oral Hygiene

7 SIMPLE TIPS FOR GREAT ORAL HYGIENE Good oral health is important for self-esteem, confidence and over- all wellness. Serious gum disease can cause bacteria to enter an individual's bloodstream and this could lead to infection in the organs. Read 7 tips for great oral hygiene. Use A Tongue Scraper A layer of food particles is usually found on the tongue and cannot be completely removed with a brush. A tongue scraper is a great way to clean the tongue. Start cleaning at the back of your tongue, then pull your way to the front of the tongue. Change Your Brush Your toothbrush is a convenient tool that you can use to remove bacteria from your tongue. You should change your toothbrush after every two or three months. Avoid Sugary Drinks Avoid red wine, tea, coffee and soda. These liquids, just like smoking, can stain the teeth and cause yellowing. If they cannot be avoided then brush immediately or rinse your mouth after consuming them. Juice Drink fizzy Natural Gargles and an Alternative Cleaning Agent Apple cider helps remove stains and whiten teeth and it also has antibacterial properties. Gargle apple cider in the morning or evening just before brushing. Baking soda can remove yellowing when used once a week. It can be used like powdered toothpaste but if your gums become too sensitive then you can switch to salt. Use Alcohol Free Mouthwashes Antiseptic mouthwashes with alcohol dry out the mouth. A dry mouth is a better breeding place for bacteria and decay. If you already have dry-mouth as a side-effect for taking a number of medications then consider chewing on sugarless gum. This will stimulate the flow of saliva for a healthier mouth. Eat Fruits & Vegetables A diet high in fruits and vegetables may be good for both your body and your teeth. While they're no substitute for brushing them, crunchy, raw fruits and vegetables can help rub plaque away as you chew. Strawberries and pineapple are two fruits that have been claimed to help whiten your teeth. Make Flossing A Habit Keep extra floss in your bag, in the car or in your office where you can easily find and use them after a meal or a snack. Having food stuck between your teeth for a considerable amount of time is never a good thing. Info Shared By: Nancy O Block, DDS
