Dental hygiene should be part of almost everybody’s health system. Your smile and general health rely heavily on strict dental habits, such as brushing, flossing, and avoiding harmful addictions. Your mouth should be pink and firm. In addition, teeth that easily reflect light and don’t wiggle over touch are just a few other signs of a healthy mouth. How can you achieve proper dental hygiene? Your teeth can last a lifetime with proper cleaning, care and visits to the dentist. So here are a few tips on how to improve or maintain your dental hygiene.

brushing

Brush your teeth properly

  • Brush at least twice a day, once before breakfast every morning and once after dinner at night. This can prevent acid buildup due to bacterial breakdown of food.
  • After brushing, use a non-fluoride mouthwash to remove the valuable fluoride that remains on your teeth after brushing.
  • In addition, toothbrushes should be frequently replaced every three to four months.
  • Brush your tongue as well as it may contain tiny food particles, plaque, and odour-causing bacteria.

flossing

Proper Flossing Technique 

  • Floss after brushing at least once per day. Flossing helps remove food materials and plaque left between teeth.
  • Use tape flosses as they cover a wider surface area than narrower thread flosses.

What You Eat Affects Your Teeth

Other healthy habits to improve dental hygiene

  • Drink plenty of water. When your mouth is dry, dead cells, food particles and other debris can build up, encouraging the growth of bacteria that causes bad breaths.
  • Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Fruit and veggies containing a lot of vitamin C, such as oranges or bell peppers, may also help to reduce the growth of bacteria in the mouth.
  • Say no to smoking. Smoking and nibbling tobacco have been correlated to oral cancer and many other diseases affecting many different parts of the body.
