Best Oral Practices for Healthy and Strong Teeth

Posted on 11/21/2022 by Rho Family Dentistry
Best Oral Practices for Healthy and Strong TeethGood oral hygiene can impact your oral and overall health. For instance, gingivitis, a type of gum disease, can occur due to poor oral hygiene. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a severe gum infection affecting the bones and tissues supporting your teeth. After some time, the bacteria can proceed to other organs, increasing the risk of health issues such as stroke and heart disease. Fortunately, you can prevent such problems with good oral hygiene habits. Read on and learn essential things to ensure healthy and strong teeth.

Brush and Floss Regularly

Brushing and flossing are essential for removing plaque and bacteria. They also keep the teeth clean, thus, preventing bacteria build-up, which can result in infection. Nevertheless, brushing and flossing can only be effective if you implement the correct techniques. For instance, you require brushing at least twice daily or flossing once daily to keep your teeth healthy. However, if you floss too hard, you may end up hurting your gums. Another technique to pay attention to when brushing is fluoride toothpaste. It helps to prevent cavities and strengthen the enamel to protect it against acid.

Limit the Intake of Sugary Drinks and Beverages

The bacteria in your mouth feed on sugary products. As they consume sugar, they produce acid that wears away the enamel. This makes your teeth vulnerable to cavities. That's why it is best to limit sugary and acidic products. Instead, consume plenty of water to rinse your mouth and ensure oral health.

Have a Routine Dental Check Up

Visiting a dentist at least every six months can do wonders for your teeth. During the dental examination, the dentist will remove tartar and check for signs of gum diseases and cavities. Also, the professional might notice other issues, such as jaw and teeth misalignment. Don't wait until you experience gums or teeth problems.
