7 Ways to Achieve Good Oral Hygiene!

Been wondering how you should go about improving your dental / oral health? Here are SEVEN keys to achieving good oral hygiene! It’s never too late to begin!

  1. Brush twice!
    Brush your teeth with a soft bristle brush in the morning and before bed at night. Better yet, add the occasional lunchtime scrub for even healthier teeth.
  2. Use a mouthwash!
    Try using a daily antiseptic mouthwash. This will keep cavity causing bacteria under control.
  3. Floss.. like a boss!
    Aim for at least one daily floss session. Make sure you use a floss that is waxy enough for easy movement between your teeth.
  4. Beware of sugar!
    Cutting down on sugar consumption will not only prevent decay of teeth but is also good for overall health! A gentle rinse with water or a mouthwash after consumption of sugar is generally recommended!
  5. Get enough calcium!
    Calcium is essential for healthy teeth, but realise that milk or a calcium supplement are not enough. Make sure you also take sufficient Vitamin D, which helps the body absorb nutrients like Calcium.
  6. Drink plenty of water!
    Water helps prevent excessive acid build – up, prevents dry mouth (a major catalyst of tooth decay) and aids in saliva production – all positives for proper oral hygiene! Keeping yourself hydrated wouldn’t hurt anyway!
  7. An apple a day keeps the cavities away!
    In addition to brushing & flossing, eating fruits and vegetables like apples (hard skin and crunchy texture) helps clean out debris and plaque between your teeth.
