Your teeth are assets. Having a perfect set of teeth, however, is useless if you do not practice proper oral hygiene and while it is highly unlikely that you can have a perfect set of teeth without knowing the proper ways to maintain oral hygiene, it is still possible. Then again, who would want to have a perfect set of teeth and have rancid breath at the same time? Thus, in such cases and if you want to make sure that you not only have straight and white teeth, but also breath that smells good, you may want to follow these “secrets” and/or tips below.
Avoid anything that can damage your teeth in any way possible. Beverages such as coffee, gravies, red wine, colas, dark juices and red wine, as well as cigar and cigarette smoking should not be taken in excess, if possible, take none at all. By consuming and/or using any of those listed above, you put your teeth at risk of getting stained and these stains can be quite hard to remove, mind you.
Change your toothbrush every two to three months and make sure that you buy the right toothbrush. Get to know more about what sort of toothbrush is best for your teeth by visiting your local dentist. In choosing a toothbrush, make sure that you use one that has a tongue scraper. If you choose to use it every day, you remove all the bacteria both in your tongue and in your cheek, bacteria of which is the leading cause of bad breath.
Certain types of food can help in cleaning the teeth the natural way. Apples, celery, carrots, popcorns, etc., have the texture to help in scarping of all of the plaque that builds up in our teeth all throughout the day. However, if you want to be healthy, make sure to feed regularly only on celeries and apples.
While dentists prohibit excessive use of it, brushing your teeth with baking soda can help keep it clean and white. The maximum frequency of use should only be about once a week or in two weeks. If you maintain using it that way, you help remove certain stains, plaque from your teeth, which effectively whitens it as well.
Make sure you floss every day as well. If you want to keep your mouth perfectly healthy and your teeth clean and white, you must use a dental floss. Make sure that you do so only in front of a mirror, so that you know where to floss and if you missed anything.
Most people tend to forget to brush their teeth regularly, most importantly, before they sleep. Even if you have already brushed your teeth after dinner, brushing before you sleep, especially when you ate something, can help shield your mouth to some extent from the bacteria that builds up in our body while we sleep.
