      How to keep your teeth healthy?

      Brush properly

      The way you brush is equally important. You have to take your time while brushing. Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle toward your gum. This will help you sweep away, gently, all the bacteria at the gum line. Make sure to brush all the teeth surfaces.

      Use a fluoride toothpaste

      When it comes to toothpaste, The American Dental Association recommends brushing the teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride occurs naturally and has long been recognized for its oral health benefits. It can reduce the risk of cavities.


      Flossing can help stop cavities from forming between your teeth. It is so important to floss once a day to remove plaque in between teeth and along the gum line.

      Use mouth rinse once a day

      Using antibacterial mouthwash helps wash away all the left food particles in your mouth and helps keep harmful bacteria at bay.

      Make sure to choose an alcohol-free mouth rinse to prevent your mouth from dryness.

      Limit sugary and acidic foods

      Sugar converts into acid in the mouth, which can decompose the enamel of your teeth. Avoid eating sugars, acidic fruits, teas, and coffee that are harmful to your teeth, and try to stick with healthy food high in Fiber that can be the best choice for your oral health.

      Avoid smoking, chewing tobacco, and alcohol

      People who smoke have a high risk of severe oral diseases such as oral cancer than the ones who don’t smoke and drink alcohol. Smoking causes tooth discoloration, plaque/tartar build-up, gum disease, and tooth loss.

      Similar to tobacco use, alcohol is the most damaging habit to your oral health.
