Title: Dental Care Tips By Dr. Ajwani’s Family & Cosmetic Dental Centre Dentist in Pune

Dental Care Tips
Tip 1 - Brushing
  • Brushing may seem like the most obvious way to
    have good oral hygiene because it is the most
    important thing one can do to keep ones teeth
    and gums healthy. Brushing gets rid of plaque,
    which if left in the mouth can lead to dental
    problems. Brushing should be done at least twice
    a day, and it is even better if its done after
    each meal. Brushing should be done for a full two
    minutes, paying attention to each tooth. One
    needs to be careful to not use too much pressure.

Tip 2 - Pick the Right Toothbrush
  • There are many different kinds of toothbrushes,
    and it is essential that each person chooses one
    to suit his or her needs. People with braces
    should get a toothbrush designed for orthodontic
    care that can clean teeth with braces more
    effectively. Those with limited dexterity or
    arthritis may find an electric toothbrush easier
    to use or one with large handle. For children
    there are toothbrushes with a timed light to help
    them brush for the full two minutes that dental
    professionals recommend. Toothbrushes should be
    replaced every three months for best results.

Tip 3 - Floss Every Day
  • Flossing should be done every day to remove food
    particles and plaque from between the teeth.
    Unfortunately many people forget or
    skip flossing because they dont realize its

Tip 4 - Need for Calcium
  • Calcium is essential to strong teeth. A diet of
    foods that are rich in calcium is important.
    Cheese, yogurt and soybeans all contain plenty of
    calcium. Vitamin D is also necessary since it
    helps the body absorb calcium.

Tip 5 - Avoid Sugary Foods and Beverages
  • Foods and beverages with a high sugar or starch
    content make the most acids in the mouth, so
    anyone wishing to eat a diet that is optimal for
    healthy teeth should keep sugary and starchy
    foods to a minimum. Hard candies, lollipops and
    sugary gum should be avoided since they linger in
    the mouth, bathing the teeth in sugar. The length
    of time that teeth are exposed to sugars is
    important because continuous exposure is worse.
    Sucking on candy and sipping sugary drinks
    throughout the day is harmful. Fruits and fruit
    juices, although natural and healthy, are high in
    sugar and should be watched.

Tip 6 - Drink Plenty of Water
  • Drinking water has several benefits. It is thirst
    quencher that doesnt have any sugar to harm
    teeth. It also helps to rinse away particles from
    the mouth, decreasing the bacteria that could
    lead to plaque and decay. It is also a good habit
    to rinse the mouth out with water after eating.

Tip 7 - Have Regular Dental Cleanings and
  • Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are
    important to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
    Tooth decay may not start with any obvious pain
    or symptoms. A dentist can discover problems
    early, before painful symptoms appear and before
    more expensive, involved dental work is required.
    Dental problems, when they occur, can get worse
    if they are left alone.

Tip 8 - Start Thinking About Oral Hygiene Early
  • Parents should start thinking about the oral
    health of their children in infanthood. A baby
    shouldnt be put to bed with a bottle that
    contains milk, formula, juice or any sugary
    liquids. An infants gums can be cleaned, even
    before teeth are showing, by wiping them with a
    moist cloth.

Tip 9 - Sealants
  • Dental sealants can be useful for giving teeth
    some protection against decay. Sealants are a
    thin, protective coating painted onto the top
    chewing surfaces of teeth, and they are usually
    applied to the back teeth. Children and teenagers
    are usually candidates for sealants however some
    adults without any decay or fillings in their
    molars may get sealants.

Tip 10 - Selecting a Dentist
  • Selecting a dentist can be a big decision. When
    selecting which dentist to visit, one should ask
    friends and family for recommendations, along
    with some other considerations. The dental
    practice should be in a convenient location with
    suitable hours of operation. Other important
    factors are whether or not a provider is covered
    on the patients insurance plan the helpfulness
    of the staff.

Tip 11 - Protect Teeth
  • Teeth can be delicate and should be protected
    from damage. They shouldnt be used for cracking
    nuts, ripping things or holding things. People
    involved in sports or athletic activities that
    could potentially lead to injury should use a
    mouth guard to protect teeth. Mouth piercings
    also put teeth in danger of being chipped or
  • Most people want to put their best food forward,
    and one of the most noticeable traits is a
    persons smile and their teeth. Its good to
    start with good oral hygiene to prevent dental
    issues and to help teeth last a lifetime.

Tip 12 - Treat Dry Mouth
  • Saliva is important to keeping the mouth healthy.
    Without enough saliva the mouth becomes dry and
    oral health problems can develop. Many common
    medications can cause dry mouth. Dryness can also
    occur from breathing through the mouth during
    sleep, which can occur with asthma, sinus
    problems or other health conditions. If someone
    is experiencing dry mouth, he or she should
    consult a doctor to find the best solution.

Tip 13 - Help Sensitive Teeth
  • People with sensitive teeth should use a very
    soft bristle brush and use toothpaste made
    especially for sensitive teeth. Heat, cold,
    acidic foods or sweet foods may trigger
    sensitivity. If something causes a reaction, then
    it should be avoided.

Tip 14 - Consult a Doctor about Acid Reflux
  • Acid reflux or GERD can lead to tooth enamel
    getting eroded by acid. People experiencing
    symptoms of acid reflux should consult with their
    doctor to control the symptoms to prevent further

Tip 15 - Quit Smoking
  • Most experts advise smokers to give up this habit
    because it can lead to many health problems,
    including oral health issues. For some people,
    smoking is not an easy habit to stop. Smokers may
    consider using toothpaste designed for smokers.
    They are specially formulated to combat bacteria
    and stains, which increase in the mouth from
