Trying to have healthy teeth that stay for longer is a great goal, but those things cannot be possible without Brushing, flossing, dental checkups, and cleanings. So why not try to help your teeth stay stronger, whiter and healthier for a lifetime.
See what changes you should make today, to make your teeth function in a more youthful and resilient way, months, or years from now.
1. Don’t Smoke
Eliminating the habit of smoking we do stronger white and healthy teeth and your overall oral health in general — than any other change you make. Numerous studies have proven the effect of tobacco on the overall well-being and health status of both men and women.
More specifically, continuing a heavy smoking habit past the age of 40 has been shown to reduce a personal life as well as the oral health. It can worsen many age-related diseases like heart disease and diabetes. Smoking also causes premature skin aging, making you look older
2. Eat a well-balanced diet
3. Good fluoridated water Supply
Water is quite beneficial to teeth, as it increases the pH of saliva, making it less acidic and more basic, thereby helping to neutralize the harmful effects of acidic foods on tooth enamel.
In Addition, water flushes away food particles and residue that cavity-causing bacteria are looking for, fights dry mouth, is calorie-free, and dilutes the acids produced by bacteria found naturally in the mouth.
4. Calcium: Good for Bones & Teeth
5. Take more Vitamin A and D
6. Limit Sugary Foods and Drinks
7. Gum disease.
More teeth have been removed through gum disease than through tooth decay. Gum disease is likely to affect anyone who neglects oral hygiene or eats a poor diet. Particularly at risk are people with alcoholism, malnutrition, or AIDS/HIV infection or who are being treated with steroid drugs or certain cancer chemotherapies. Regular brushing and flossing help to prevent puffy, sore, and inflamed gums.
8. Avoid Over-Brushing
9. Manage your stress or anxiety intake
10. Stay Active
11. Make an Appointment With Your Dentist.
Most dentists recommend a dental check-up every 6 months or more if you are most likely to develop problems like gum disease. During an oral diagnosis, your dentist or dental hygienist removes plaque build-up that you can’t brush or floss away and look for signs of decay.
A regular dental exam also spots:
- Early signs of oral cancer
- Signs of gum disease
- Interactions with medications. Older patients, especially those on multiple medications, are at risk of dry mouth, or xerostomia.
