Are you struggling to maintain the health of your teeth and your mouth? Well, here are a few keys tips to take into consideration when trying to keep your mouth as clean as possible!
1. Brush your teeth twice a day
The best time to brush your teeth is after meals, so for example after your breakfast and then late at night after your evening meal will definitely be the best of times. Brushing your teeth twice a day ensures your mouth remains clean and healthy – aim for at least 2-3 minutes when brushing your teeth.
2. Using fluoride toothpaste
The use of fluoride toothpaste will reduce your risk of decay and harden your tooth enamel, so ensure that your toothpaste is fluoride!
3. Reducing the amount of acidic drinks e.g. soft drinks.
Acidic drinks can be extremely bad for your teeth. The acid will dissolve minerals in tooth enamel and cause holes in your teeth. It can also soften tooth material making your teeth feel really sensitive.
Flossing can help remove food particles and other detrimental substances that brushing cannot. Flossing will allow you to reach deep between your teeth where brushing cannot reach, when flossing it is recommended to be done at least once a day.
5. Visit your dentist
