USE OF ANTISEPTIC MOUTHWASHES AND
FLUORIDE Regular tooth-brushing and flossing is
highly effective in removing plaque-causing
bacteria. Dentists recommend using antiseptic
mouthwashes for treating bad breath as well.
Moreover, fluoride is an essential mineral for
protecting and strengthening the teeth naturally.
And this is why, using fluoride-based toothpaste,
dental products and fluoridated drinking water is
strongly recommended for maintaining healthy
teeth. Oral Health and Life Stages The ideal time
to start working on dental care is infancy. In
fact, there are important dental heath and oral
hygiene practices that should be established at
different life stages.

During infancy, a moist cloth should be used for
wiping the teeth clean. Limited amounts of
toothpaste should be used, particularly if the
toothpaste contains fluoride because using
excessive amounts of this ingredient can have
toxic effects on infants. On the contrary, adults
wearing full/partial dentures need to follow
proper oral hygiene practices as recommended by
their dentist for preventing gum disease. Denture
wearers should have regular dental visits for
ensuring proper realignment and adjustment of the
dentures, which is needed for preventing red and
inflamed gums. How To Brush Teeth?

It is important to understand that the teeth
should be brushed thoroughly but not very
vigorously because rough movements can lead to
irritation of oral tissues. Dental flossing is
also very important for maintaining healthy
teeth. If the problem of sore or bleeding gums is
experienced during the first few days following
flossing, it should be considered normal. But, if
bleeding lasts a week or more, the dentist should
be consulted immediately.
Precautionary Measures The best way to prevent
serious oral diseases is visiting the dentist on
a regular basis, especially every six months for
monitoring dental as well as oral health. Regular
dental cleaning along with essential fluoride
treatment and dental scaling is highly essential
for removing accumulated plaque. THE DOS AND
DONTS OF EATING HABITS According to dental
health experts, many patients arent aware of the
fact that dental health is greatly influenced by
the kind of diet an individual consumes. Avoiding
decay-causing foods is only possible when
individuals are aware of tooth-damaging foods and
healthy alternatives, which is why, staying
up-to-date on proper oral health practices and
tooth-friendly eating habits is very important.

Foods with high sugar content and acidic
beverages can negatively affect the tooth enamel.
Moreover, sticky foods arent easily washed away
from the surface of teeth, and therefore,
consumption of sticky foods should be limited.
Most dental experts recommend eating fiber-rich
foods like fresh fruits and vegetables for
increasing the saliva flow, which is essential
for neutralizing acids in the mouth while
removing food particles and sugars trapped in
between teeth. Ready To Find Out More About Oral
