To maintain that perfect smile and the confidence to show your teeth you must follow basic dental hygiene. It will not only boost your confidence with an attractive pair of teeth but also help you to combat any serious dental issues.

While it is important that you undergo a regular dental check-up, it is also vital that you take care of your teeth, gums, and mouth every single day. Here are 7 such everyday tips that promote your oral hygiene and health, which is not difficult to maintain.

  1. Brush Your Teeth Properly
    • At least twice a day brush your teeth, preferably before and after your main meals.
    • Do ensure that while brushing your gum line and the tooth surface is in contact with the bristles.
  2. Remember To Floss
    • Flossing cleans your teeth internally whereas brushing cleans them externally.
    • Flossing allows you to reach areas of your teeth that neither washing nor the bristles of the toothbrush can reach.
  3. Use Mouthwash Daily
    • Bacteria of your mouth can be killed with mouthwash, ensuring fewer diseases and even bad breaths.
    • It also helps in maintaining strong teeth
  4. Clean Your Tongue
    • Along with your teeth and gums clean your tongue too as it is equally important.
    • To keep your tongue and mouth clean and bacteria free use professional tongue cleaner daily. This will help you in maintaining good breath.
  5. Calcium Intake
    • Develop a calcium enriched diet as it will not only strengthen your bones but also teeth and jaws.
    • Have an adequate portion of foods that are rich in Vitamin B complex and D, like milk, cheese, and yogurts and such.
  6. No To Soft Drinks
    • Calcium levels of your body can be depleted with increased intake of beverages that are high on phosphorous like soft drinks, coffee, and alcohol, so avoid them.
    • These beverages will have an adverse effect on your enamel. To maintain a beautiful smile and stronger enamel avoid such beverages.
  7. Regular Visit To The Dentist
    • Visit your dentist at least twice a year even if you have a healthy tooth and good dental hygiene.
    • Never ignore any tooth problem since prolonging the issue can cause further issues like development of heart diseases, infections, diabetes, and inability to eat or speak properly and worse develop cancer.

If you maintain these 7 tips on a regular basis and the first 6 on an everyday basis you will not only have a beautiful smile with healthy teeth but also ensure the better oral and overall health of your being.
