 Tips for those Pearly Whites

Our teeth are our partners for life. They work for us day in and day out and in return, we must give them the proper attention and care they need and deserve. People crave for a perfect smile and if you want to achieve that, you need to make sure that your teeth are healthy and white. Follow these simple steps and get an endearing smile –

  • You’ve heard this tip from your mom, from your dentist, you’ve even seen it in textbooks, but you barely follow it for more than a week. The most effective and the most ignored way of maintaining healthy teeth is brushing your teeth twice daily. All you need to do is to muster the courage of picking up the toothbrush before sleeping.
  • Rinse your mouth every time you’ve had something (1)
  • Do not brush your teeth immediately after having acidic food items like corns, olives, blueberries, cranberries, spaghetti, chick peas, soy milk, peanuts, lentils and oats.
  • Use a straw while drinking soda or beverages with high acidic content. The less your teeth will come in contact with soda or sugar, the better your dental health will be.
  • Get a new toothbrush every three months. Never use worn-out toothbrushes since they can harm your gums. After brushing, clean your toothbrush properly.
  • Smoking is a fabulous way to get in touch with life-threatening diseases like oral cancer and lung cancer, but in case you are not looking forward to dying, you need to put that cigarette down! Smoking is one of the major reasons why people end up with discoloured and unattractive teeth.
  • Consuming too much alcohol can cause discolouration.
  • In case of a dental emergency, like bleeding gums, severe toothache or tooth loss, immediately visit a dental clinic. Avoiding the situation will only deteriorate it.
  • Regular dental check-ups are extremely important. There are many dental diseases which can be cured effectively only when they are detected in the early stages. You need to visit the dentist every six months.
