     In today's post I am going to talk about some tips to keep our Teeth Strong and Healthy. Many of us take enough care of our health and body but ignore the health of our teeth, which is actually the most important one. If we neglect our oral hygiene, then our teeth may get cavities, gum diseases and other serious problems. So, follow simple tips to protect your teeth from diseases!
9 Tips To Keep Your Teeth Strong and Healthy!!!
1) Brush at least twice a day: It is always a good thing to brush at least two times in a day, once in the morning and once in the evening or before going to bed. Not only that brushing the teeth with a correct brushing technique is also important in maintaining proper oral hygiene! It is important to keep in mind that we should wait at least 30 -40 minutes after taking food, before brushing the teeth.

2) Choosing the Right Tooth Brush: Selecting the tooth brush with soft bristles, flexible head is important to achieve proper cleaning to get rid of germs effectively without giving pressure to the gums! It is also important to change your tooth brush once in every 3 months.

3) Use Fluoride containing Tooth Paste: Fluoride helps in strengthening the tooth enamel, prevents tooth cavities. So, choose your tooth paste wisely. Check for the ingredients and make sure your tooth paste contains good amount of fluoride in it!

4) Eat Foods That Protect Enamel: Eating the foods that are rich in calcium, counters acids released by other foods, thereby protecting the enamel by preventing the cavities.

5) Limit Foods Rich in Sugars : Foods and drinks like chocolates, cookies, soft drinks, chewy candies etc.,  are rich in sugars and so bacteria feed on this sugar and convert them to acids, which softens enamel and damages it. So , better to limit the foods like these to protect the enamel.

6) Keep Flossing: Flossing helps in removing food particles, plaque, bacteria that hides in between our teeth, which our tooth brush cannot take. Flossing once a day helps in preventing cavities to a large extent.

7) Use Anti-Bacterial Mouth Wash : Using an Anti-Bacterial mouth wash after brushing and flossing helps in removing the debris from the mouth and contribute in oral hygiene. Find a dentist and ask them to prescribe a right mouthwash basing on your teeth condition.

8) Tongue Cleaning: Cleaning the tongue along without teeth is not only important for maintaining oral hygiene but also for preventing bad breath.

9) Get Regular Checkups: Going to a Dental hospital for a checkup once every 6 months is important and having regular cleaning sections helps in preventing plaque formation and gum diseases.

Try incorporating these methods in your daily routine and book an appointment  in a good reputed hospitals like Manipal hospital etc., with your dentist immediately, if you have any teeth or gum related diseases immediately to prevent serious oral diseases like oral cancer etc.,

So, follow these simple steps to maintain Strong and Healthy Teeth!
