Avoid Fizzy Drinks
Soda is delicious but also equally dangerous for your teeth. In fact, the two ingredients, phosphoric acid and citric acid, that give soda its flavor also softens teeth enamel that makes teeth more vulnerable to cavities. Drink water with added flavors like citrus or mint instead of fizzy drinks to keep your teeth healthy.
Leave Out Sugar
Sugar is the main culprit to destroying the teeth as it multiplies the bacteria and acidity in the mouth. Every time you consume a sugary treat, your mouth produces acid for 20 minutes which then harms the teeth. To maintain teeth wellbeing, try to avoid sugar altogether or brush and floss after every sugary snack.
We all know that twice-a-day brushing is recommended but proper way of brushing is also essential. It is advised that the toothbrush be held at a 45-degree angle, pointed upwards in the direction of the gums and small, short, circular strokes be used. Each tooth should be brushed 10-15 times but not aggressively as it can erode the gum line.
Consume Teeth-Friendly Foods
Have calcium-rich stuff that strengthens your teeth such as low-fat milk, cheese, and yogurt. Gum-healthy foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables which are rich in Vitamin A and C are also a good addition to your diet. Tea is also recommended because it provides fluoride for the teeth. You can also get fluoride from certain toothpastes or mouth washes.
So follow the above advice and keep smiling!
