Everyone wants a beautiful smile. Not only is a beautiful smile … well beautiful, it’s also a sign of healthy teeth and gums. If you already have a beautiful smile you’ll want to keep those pearly whites healthy and shining for years to come, so it’s very important to properly care for them.
A great smile can leave a lasting first impression. Here are some tips on how you can get that winning grin and keep it looking that way for life.
Brush and Floss Often
This tip should be obvious, but, it’s surprising how many people don’t brush and floss their teeth as often as they should. You should, at least, brush and floss your teeth after every meal to make sure you remove any food that may be stuck between your teeth.
Brushing often is so important that you should talk with the dentists at Dental Avenue in Parramatta, Australia’s leading dentists, to find out what type of tooth brush is best for your teeth and gums. Also, ask how often you should swap out your tooth brush for a new one, rule of thumb is every 60 days but make sure.
Floss after every time you brush your teeth. Not only will flossing help to remove all of the food particles caught in between your teeth, it also helps to keep your gums healthy as well.
Limit Your Intake of Sugar
A big misconception about sugar is that it causes your teeth to rot. However, sugar, itself, doesn’t cause tooth decay but, if you continuously eat a lot of foods that contain sugar, you increase your chances of gaining oral bacteria that will cause tooth decay.
You acquire oral bacteria from carbohydrates like sugar, which produces acid as a by-product of fermentation. The acid will slowly erode the enamel layer or your teeth, which weakens them.
Increase Your Calcium Intake
Including more calcium in your diet doesn’t only build stronger bones, it will also strengthen your teeth as well. Studies show that calcium is a major weapon in the fight against tooth decay.
Stay Away from Sticky, Chewy Food
Sticky, chewy foods are more likely to stick to your teeth and create oral bacteria that will also eat away at the enamel of your teeth, increasing your chances for tooth decay. These foods also increase your chances of contracting the gum disease gingivitis.
