What to eat and what to avoid for healthy teeth
Eating healthy is essential to maintain good oral health. Choose foods that are low in sugar and high in fiber such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. Avoid sugary snacks and drinks as they can increase the risk of cavities. Eat crunchy fruits and vegetables like apples, carrots, celery, and broccoli to help keep your teeth clean.
Brush More Often
Brushing your teeth is the best way to keep them healthy and prevent tooth decay. Make sure to brush at least twice a day for two minutes each time with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Additionally, don’t forget to floss regularly.
Don’t Forget to Floss
Flossing helps remove food particles and plaque from between teeth and along the gum line that a toothbrush can’t reach. Flossing once a day is recommended for optimal oral health.
The importance of regular dental check-ups
Regular visits to the dentist are also essential for maintaining good oral health. During these visits, your dentist may perform a variety of services such as cleaning, filling cavities, or performing other preventive care measures. Even if you don’t have any noticeable issues with your teeth, it’s important to have them checked at least twice a year.
