Love Your Mouth! Tips On Taking Care Of Your Teeth And Gums

Aug 17, 2007
Did you know that not taking proper care of your teeth and gums can actually have a harmful affect on the rest of your body? Having healthy teeth and gums will help to keep your bones strong, your immune system running at top-notch capacity, and can actually help to prevent certain forms of tongue and gum cancers! Here are a few tips on how you can ensure you keep your teeth and gums healthy and fully functional, well into your older years!

1) Brush Twice a Day!
Don't let busyness get in the way of clean teeth! Brush after breakfast in the morning, and then before you go to bed at night. Take a portable music player into the bathroom with you, and brush for the duration of about one song, which tends to be around three minutes. Make sure you also gently brush your tongue and the roof of your mouth to get rid of any potential bacteria that may be trying to lurk there!

2) Floss Once a Day!
The best time to do this is probably before you head to sleep at night, since you'll be less rushed for time. Push the floss gently into place between each set of teeth, and move it back and forth a few times. Then, make a curve with the floss and slide it up and down the edge of each tooth, ensuring that all surfaces get cleaned.

3) Make Healthy Choices
When it comes to personal nutrition, the health of your teeth is effected by the things you put in your mouth. Since cutting out all sugars is an unreasonable goal, try eating more fruits and snacks with natural sugars, or decide to only consume processed sugars at mealtimes. Snacking on things like veggies and yogurt between meals is a better choice for your all around health anyway, so making it a part of your daily dental regimen will do double health duty!

4) Visit Your Dentist
This should be a given! As a certified professional, your dentist can make sure your teeth and gums stay healthy for years to come, and he'll be able to catch any issues that arise between visits. To avoid painful dental procedures like root canals down the line, follow these simple guidelines for healthy teeth and gums, and visit your dentist just to make sure no additional complications have the chance to develop!

You'll only ever get one set of teeth in this world, so take care of the teeth you have!
