Brush your teeth after every meal

Brushing your teeth is a given right? Well, not everyone brushes their teeth as often as is recommended. Not only that but the amount of time you spend brushing your teeth is also important to take note of.

For example, if you want to look after your teeth by brushing them correctly, then you’ll want to brush your teeth for at least two minutes each time. This ensures you get every single tooth and hit every angle of the mouth, including your gums and tongue. Remember, the tongue harbours an incredible amount of bacteria that often goes ignored.

Avoid any drinks or habits that stain your teeth

There are certain drinks or habits that can contribute to staining your teeth. For example, coffee is a big contributor to stained teeth so it’s important that when it comes to drinking coffee, you only do it every so often to avoid harming your teeth too much.

There are also certain habits that can stain your teeth. In such a case, smoking can cause significant damage to your body and also your teeth in its appearance. Not only that but your breath isn’t going to be the most delightful when other people are around you. Try to quit this habit if you can for the sake of your gnashers. 

See a dentist regularly

To help maintain your smile, it’s essential that you check in with your dentist on a regular basis. This includes a yearly trip to the dentist to get the all-important check-up. Should you experience any problems with your teeth, it’s also important to check in with your dentist sooner rather than later. 

Even if you’ve only recently been to the dentist. Getting that checkup is going to identify any problems and resolve them.

Use floss and mouthwash

As well as brushing your teeth, dentists will recommend you use both floss and mouthwash when it comes to taking care of your teeth. It’s two additions to your dental routine that will help keep your teeth clean and your breath smelling fresh.

Floss helps get the food particles that your brush doesn’t get. With mouthwash, it’s a disinfectant for your tongue, gums and teeth in general.

Protect your teeth when playing certain sports

Finally, be sure to protect your teeth whenever you’re playing sports that often are impactful on the body. From rugby to hockey, these are sports where your teeth might be in danger if an impact or flying object comes at you at speed.

Hopefully, with these tips, you’ll be able to look after your teeth better this year.
