Healthy food keeps our body fit and functioning properly but what we eat also contributes to our oral health and hygiene. So, it is necessary that we also make a checklist of what we have to do to maintain our oral health.
Here are some points that you should take care of or must avoid which can harm your oral health.
AVOID OR LIMIT THE CONSUMPTION OF DARK PRODUCTS
Eateries and drinks like candies, coffee, black tea contains Tannis which make color compounds to stick in your teeth and further results in yellowing of your teeth. You must take care of the food or drink that you are consuming so that it doesn’t affect your oral mouth.
BRUSHING TEETH ABRUPTLY
We all are well aware of the fact that there is an age to do everything. Brushing your teeth in a wrong way can definitely harm your teeth and their hygiene and can also damage the gums. Just brushing left to right is not enough. You should start from your gums in up and down motion leading into a circular motion so that the whole of your teeth gets the proper care.
Do not use one toothbrush for more too long. It's advisable to be change it every 3 months.
USING YOUR TEETH AS A TOOL TO OPEN THINGS
Every one of us is quite familiar with this; if we don’t find any tool to open a beer bottle handy we generally try to use our teeth. But this can cause a lot of damage as it might fracture and cause them to chip while opening it.
HAVING BAD HABITS
Biting nails or using the teeth for grinding can cause damage to your gums as well as to your teeth. That is why from a very small age our parents and elders ask us not to do such things.
Flossing helps in the removal of plaque and pieces of food that get stuck between our teeth or on the tongue. It also helps in preventing gum diseases. But however, you must know the right way of flossing. Pushing plaque underneath their gums or with a sawing motion can damage the gums.
Maintaining a good oral health is what everyone wishes for. Hope we have helped you out with these easy and simple points of what to avoid and what to do so that you can prevent the damage that can be caused to your teeth.
