Flashing Your Pearly Whites
Ever seen a picture of Julia Roberts smile? Dentists all around the world call in the most in harmony, natural, beautiful, million-dollar smile. A smile that pleases the eyes. Flashing your pearly whites simply means the same a smile as white as pearls. With a proper care you can have a pearly white smile too. Read below to find out what precautions and care you need to take to have that dreamy smile.
Brush twice in a day
Brushing should be done two times in a day, in the morning and at night before retiring to bed. Of the four human reservoirs, the mouth is the most diverse with over 700 micro-organisms of different phenotypes or sub-strains co-existing in harmony, although surrounded by a stressful environment of changing pH, oxygen tension, and nutrients. It is essential to take good oral care with the easiest tool available that is the brush.
Floss the moss
Toothbrushes, even after being used correctly, remove only 50% of the total plaque formed. The plaque that forms between the teeth and along the gum line is not accessible to the toothbrush and thus remains untouched. To clean these areas, we need to floss. But flossing should be done gently, by sliding the floss along the sides of the teeth without injuring the gums.
Clean your tongue
More than 60% of bacteria in the oral cavity are found on the tongue, forming a dangerous reservoir for bacterial diseases at the teeth and gums as well as root cause for halitosis (i.e. bad breath). So, cleansing your tongue is the most important part of total oral care.
Eat a balanced diet
A balanced diet must include fresh fruits and vegetables rather than relying on canned juices and other short cuts for instant energy. Chewing on the raw fruits and vegetables like apple, carrot, and oranges not only provides nutrition, but also increases salivation that in turn ensues a self-cleansing process.
Don’t smoke or use tobacco
Smoking and chewing tobacco not only causes staining of your pearly whites, but also a reason for oral cancer.
Limit your tea and coffee intake
Caffeine in tea and coffee causes staining of your teeth. One must also avoid food with colour. Limit the frequency of its intake and swish your mouth with warm water after you eat or drink teeth staining items.
Visit your dentist biannually
Visit your dentist after every six months for a professional cleaning, whitening, and oral examination.
