A great smile is the best asset to keep you camera-ready in today’s social-media-crazy world and make you more confident in tomorrow. Many times, all it takes to maintain a great smile as well as your oral health is a robust oral care routine and a little dedicated effort on your part.
In this blog, we’ve lined up a few tips on how to easily achieve a better smile.
Drinks like coffee, tea, soda, wine, and foods like curries, sauces, and blackberries are known to cause tooth discoloration and staining.
Still, this does not mean you have to stop consuming them altogether. Making an active effort to reduce your intake of foods and drinks that can cause teeth stains is enough to keep your teeth bright and shiny.
For good measure, you should also consider using a whitening toothpaste to reduce any staining that foods and drinks may cause.
The American Dental Association recommends that you replace your toothbrush at regular intervals. Ideally, every three to four months.
This is because the bristles on your brush tend to wear out after continued use, and they become less effective at cleaning plaque from the surface of your teeth. Furthermore, frayed bristles can also become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and fungus.
Brushing is the first line of defense against all major dental ailments. This is why dentists always advise their patients to brush twice a day.
The simple act of brushing for two minutes in the morning and two minutes at night reduces the buildup of plaque and tartar in your mouth and the risk of developing more serious dental issues.
Conditions like bruxism, obesity and high blood pressure can also hurt your dental health and affect the appearance of your teeth. Seek medical attention to get these ailments treated and pave the way for a healthier life and a better smile.
The bottom line in maintaining a healthy, radiant smile is to prioritize your oral health and top off your oral care routine with regular visits to your dentist to rule out the onset of dental complications.
