Brush Your Teeth Regularly

You certainly cannot avoid drinking refreshing fruit juices and other colored beverages such ice-cold frappes to keep you cool during the warm hours. However, these drinks could cause teeth discoloration and regular brushing can help prevent it. Nothing could go wrong with regular brushing at the very least, two times a day. Not only should you brush, you ought to do it right too. Use a toothbrush that is not too large or not too small for you with bristles that are soft enough not to damage your gums. Spend at least a couple of minutes cleaning every section.

Make it a Habit to Floss Everyday

Why flossing should be a part of your regular dental hygiene could never be reiterated enough. Ask any dental professional and they will tell you that it is one of the most important dental cares to ensure healthy gums and teeth. Brushing alone cannot remove lodged food particles between teeth. These food particles become a breeding ground for bacteria and start the buildup of tartar – that unsightly yellowish substance glued to teeth like cement.

Have a Regular Dental Prophylaxis

No matter how you brush and floss, you would still need to visit your dentist for complete dental cleaning through prophylaxis, at least two times a year. Plaque and tartar have means of finding their way into the hard-to-reach areas between your teeth which may only be removed using dental equipments specific for the purpose. You can feel your teeth squeaky clean and your mouth feeling fresh after an appointment.
