Although we may think that we have knowledge and education on how to take care of our teeth, the truth is that most of us do not have a clear idea on what we need to do to make sure that our teeth are properly cleaned and free of food particles that can cause decay. You need to first buy a soft bristled tooth brush that you can brush your teeth with. In addition to this, you will need to buy yourself a good fluoride based tooth paste because fluoride has the ability to prevent decay and strengthen your enamel which is the outer layer of your teeth. You need to use a circular motion to brush your teeth at first and then use up and down and right and left motions to make sure that you reach every single tooth and every corner of your mouth. You need to continue this motion for at least three minutes minimal. Many people do not brush their tongue when they are brushing their teeth but this is just as important as the rest of your mouth because your tongue collects bacteria on it.
Have your teeth professionally checked frequently
Most people only go to the dentist when they are having a problem or pain their mouth but by the time that the cavity or problem with your tooth is causing you pain, it means that it has already gotten very bad and requires serious fixing.If you wait until you are feeling pain to go and see a professional, you might be at the point where you require a dentist mount Ommaney and need to have your tooth taken out which is why it is important that you go to your professional every three weeks to one month to have your mouth checked for any issues that may be present and have those issues checked. It is also important that you keep away from sweet food and acidic drinks while you are away from home because you may not have the chance to wash out your mouth or brush your teeth after you have had them. Having these substances on your teeth can cause decay and many other problems. If you are at home and you have just had an acidic drink, make sure that your brush your teeth immediately after having the drink or the sweet so that there are no remainders of the food in your mouth. If you have an electric tooth brush, it would be even better for your teeth as they clean better.
