A celebrity smile is everyone’s dream. But it shouldn’t remain just a dream. With help from your DentArana dentist, a brighter smile is possible!
We’d like to be a part of your oral health journey as you confidently smile your way into your everyday routine. Hence, we offer 6 tips for healthier and whiter teeth. Take a look!
1. Brushing and flossing – make them a habit.
Brush your teeth at least twice a day or after every meal if possible. Brushing removes food residue left after your meal and helps keeps your breath fresh. The right brushing duration is two minutes and must include the tongue and other soft tissues in the mouth.
Don’t forget to floss as well. Floss at least once a day to remove all food debris stuck between teeth.
2. Use a toothpaste with fluoride.
Don’t be deceived by what you see on your television or in other ads. Although whitening toothpastes can remove stains because of a mild abrasive content, they have little effect when it comes to older discolouration. We recommend using the regular toothpaste or one that has fluoride. The trick is not with the toothpaste; it’s in how you brush your teeth.
3. Choose a mouthwash with fluoride.
Increase your teeth’s chance at fighting decay by rinsing with a fluoride mouthwash. Fluoride helps in the remineralisation of your teeth by redepositing lost enamel. It also makes teeth more resistant to acid attacks.
4. Schedule a regular dental check-up.
Your dentist can help you keep your pearly whites in their best shape. You need a professional cleaning for your teeth to remove the plaque that wasn’t removed through brushing.
A dental check-up also includes tests for possible oral diseases such as oral cancer. The earlier these diseases are detected, the higher the chances of a cure.
5. Check your diet.
Foods not only leave plaque in the mouth. They can also stain your teeth. Search the web for foods that easily stain teeth such as wine and soda. Remember, if it’s dark then it will probably leave a stain.
Opt for mouth-friendly alternatives. Make a list of the foods that you should choose and be sure to add them to your pushcart the next time you hit the grocery store.
6. Stop smoking.
Smoking has been proven to compromise your oral health. The nicotine and tar leave yellow deposits on the teeth.
