Top Tips for Beautiful Teeth and Gums

There is something about a beautiful smile that makes a person appear more approachable and trustworthy. Whether we have straight teeth from wearing braces or we have cute crooked teeth, we need to make the most of it and take good care of our assets. You could be that likeable person, just follow these top tips for beautiful teeth and gums!

  1. Flossing

Flossing gets rid of food that get stuck in between your teeth or in your gums. It also help retain the full size of your teeth! You need to floss all the way up to your gums. It’s okay if there is a little bleeding – my dentist says this is normal and this makes your gums get stronger. I would be careful and be alarmed if there’s more than a little though. Floss daily for best results.

  1. Brush twice a day

Brush your teeth at least twice a day in the morning and at night to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Make sure when you brush, you angle the bristles at 45 degree near the gum line. Gently brush in repetitive back and forth and up and down motion. On top of this, make sure your toothbrush are kept clean and dry when you’re not using it to prevent bacteria from multiplying. Replace your toothbrush every three months as the bristles tend to wear out.

  1. Limit your fluoride use.

Although fluoride strengthens your teeth (you enamel to be precise) and lowers the chances of tooth decay, make sure you don’t use too much, especially in children as it can cause white spots on teeth.

  1. Drink with a straw to avoid stains

For the love of beautiful unstained teeth, try to drink coffee with a straw. Or if you have no choice but to drink red wine and eat other food that stain your teeth, then opt for baking soda. Use toothpaste with baking soda to remove stains.

  1. Rinse after meals

On top of brushing your teeth, it helps to rinse your mouth with an anti bacterial mouthwash after meals to help prevent gum problems.

  1. Avoid smoking

Tobacco increases the risk of gum disease and oral cancer. It also stains your teeth! Consider quitting or don’t even start.

  1. See your dentist every six months

Don’t wait for a serious tooth problem to see the dentist. Make an appointment for a routine exam so your dentist remove any plaque build up that can’t be cleared just by brushing or flossing. Seeing your dentist also allows early detection of gum disease and oral cancer.

  1. Proper nutrition. Ensure healthy eating through eating a balanced diet. Consume foods that are high in calcium like milk, yoghurt or take calcium supplements. Avoid sugary foods and drinks because sugar causes tooth decay.
