Taking care of your teeth is a very important part of the way people see you. It’s also important to your overall health and well being.
According to the American Dental Association, to maintain healthy dental hygiene, you should:
* Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Ideally, brush after each meal and always before going to bed.
* Brush your teeth properly. It is recommended to brush for a continuous 2 minutes.
* Floss Daily.
* Eat healthily – It makes a difference. Good balanced meals are always better for you than snacking. Stay away from candy and other sweets. If you indulge in a sweet, especially a sticky candy, always remember to brush your teeth as soon as possible.
* Visit your dentist for check-ups regularly.
This last point is truly the most important thing you can do to ensure oral health. It comes as a surprise to many that no matter how much you brush or how much you floss, the only way to ensure long term oral health is to actually visit your dentist.
