Teeth? Read On
  • Irvine Dental Certified tips provider Good oral
    hygiene can be difficult for some people to
    achieve. Over time, teeth can become stained,
    yellow or decayed. If you don't take care of
    these issues, you will start to notice bigger
    problems occurring. There are remedies to help
    you undo the damage. Continue reading to learn
    some great dental care tips.
  • If you have questions for your dentist, write
    them down and bring them to your appointment.
    Once your cleaning and exam begin, it is hard to
    get a word in edgewise, especially with picks,
    pokers and mirrors in your mouth! Speak up
    beforehand, and a dental hygienist can answer
    your questions before your mouth is too full, or
    too sore to ask afterwards.
  • You should brush and clean your teeth thoroughly
    after every meal you have. Do not hesitate to
    carry a small toothbrush and some floss with you
    so you can clean your teeth no matter where you
    are. If you do not clean your teeth after a meal,
    make up for it by spending more time cleaning
    your teeth later.
  • Irvine Dental Certified tips provider Eat
    nutritious meals and avoid harmful snacking for
    better teeth. Try to avoid carbs like pretzels,
    chips, candy, and other junk food. These types of
    foods can remain on the surface of your teeth
    which can cause painful and expensive dental
    issues to fix. If you eat anything sticky, you
    should brush your teeth as soon as you can.

If cost concerns are bothering you when it comes
to getting proper dental care, make sure you ask
your dental provider about payment plans. Some
procedures can be rather expensive, but most
providers are willing to work with patients on
payment arrangements. Often, an instalment
arrangement can be worked out and this can enable
you to get immediate treatment.   Only use
mouthwash free of alcohol. Alcohol as an
ingredient can dry out the tissues in your mouth.
This creates a breeding ground for the very
bacteria you are hoping to avoid. Alcohol-free
mouthwash is also less of a temptation for kids
and teenagers looking to experiment with when
bored.   It is significant to teach kids the
importance of good dental care as early as
possible. Help them to understand why brushing is
important and how it keeps their teeth clean.
Establishing good early habits will set the
foundation for your child taking care of their
teeth as they get older.   Do not every ignore a
painful tooth. Prolonged or severe pain could
mean an infection is there, and it must be
addressed immediately. Call your dentist
immediately.   Eating when you're not hungry not
only adds weight, but can also increase your risk
of cavities. If you snack throughout the day, you
expose your teeth to more cavity-causing
bacteria, sugars and acid. Thus, you should eat
only when you're hungry in order to protect your
dental health.   If you are a smoker, you need to
stop smoking for a healthy mouth. Smoking has
been linked to oral cancer, tooth discoloration
, bad breath and tooth decay. The best thing that
you can do for the health of your mouth is to
quit smoking. Not only will your mouth thank you,
but you body will as well.   One key tips with
regards to dental health is to avoid waiting
until it is too late. If you have a tooth ache,
or some other oral problem, don't sit around
hoping for the problem to go away. Instead visit
your dentist immediately so that you can act
before your problem gets worse.   Irvine Dental
Certified tips provider If you find that you are
plagued with tooth decay, think about what you
may be missing in your diet. A lot of people who
aren't getting enough vitamins and minerals in
their diet get dental issues. Add a multivitamin
to your diet and go to the doctor to get more
tests run, if needed, to identify the exact
problem. Play a game with your child that
involves pretending to be a dentist. That way, if
they are nervous, this will help alleviate their
fears. Let them play the patient while you play
the dentist. Use a toothbrush to count their
teeth. When you are done, give your child a
stuffed toy animal and let your child become the
dentist.   If your toothbrush is a manual one,
make sure to replace it regularly. If you have an
electric toothbrush, you should change the head
often. If you stay with a toothbrush for too
long, the bacteria on the brush will eventually
transfer to your mouth. Most dentists suggest
that toothbrushes be replaced every two to three
Milk is good for the teeth because it contains a
lot of calcium, but you should make sure to brush
after each glass. There are natural sugar in milk
and they can lead to tooth decay. Also, drinking
milk that is lower in fat will reduce the amount
of sugar each glass contains, but it won't affect
the calcium.   If you are not brushing for at
least two minutes, you should try to increase
your brushing time. In order to do this, you can
separate your mouth into four sections, such as
your top teeth on your right side. Start brushing
in one section, and continue until 30 seconds are
up. Once the 30 seconds are up, move onto the
next section.   Keep an eye on how clean your
toothbrush is. Throw it out or change the head on
an electric one about every two to three months.
After using a brush a while, the brush will
collect bacteria and food, and some will get
stuck deep within the bristles. If you don't
change it out, you are just transferring all of
that back onto your teeth.   Irvine Dental
