A beautiful smile, sparkling with whiteness and health, is a guarantee of self-confidence, and therefore a faithful assistant in achieving success. Follow these simple guidelines and you will always be able to afford to smile freely without worrying about the condition of your teeth and freshness of breath.
1. Eat right
Dental health is largely dependent on nutrition. To keep your teeth strong, your diet should be rich in calcium, contain a complete set of foods from the main groups (fruits and vegetables, bread, dairy, meat) and a moderate amount of carbohydrates. Regularly consume green tea, mustard, cheese, nuts, mint, strawberries, celery, carrots, and other hard vegetables or fruits to strengthen gums, keep breath fresh, and cleanse teeth of disease-causing plaque. But tomatoes, citrus fruits and other acidic foods, try to eat as part of a dish, and not separately. It is also better to limit yourself to sweets. Sugar residues on the teeth are a favorite food of microorganisms that contribute to the appearance of caries.
2. Visit the dentist regularly
Once every six months, be sure to allocate time and money for a preventive examination at the dentist. You need to do this, even if you have no visible problems with your teeth and gums. Believe me, an experienced doctor will always find what can be corrected and thereby prevent the development of caries and other dental problems. It is also very helpful to have your teeth professionally cleaned regularly.
3. Keep hygiene
Regular proper hygiene is the main condition for maintaining the health and beauty of your smile. You need to brush your teeth at least 2 times a day — in the morning and in the evening with a medium-hard brush (it will clean your teeth and not hurt your delicate gums).
In addition to a toothbrush and toothpaste for a complete oral care, dentists strongly recommend using a mouthwash. It cares for the gums, prevents their inflammation, and also gives fresh breath. It is better to choose rinses with a prolonged action.
