EAT GOOD-FOR-YOUR-TEETH FOODS
Diet plays a big part in keeping your teeth healthy due to the nutrients and vitamins found in different foods. For healthy teeth and gums, start stocking the pantry with these goodies.
Tooth enamel is the toughest tissue of the whole human body. Keep it that way by adding these tooth-fortifying foods to your regular diet.
- APPLES: The crunchy texture of an apple triggers a combination of chewing and saliva, which works to gently scrub away stains on your teeth.
- CHEESE: Dairy foods, including cheese, are rich in tooth- and bone-fortifying calcium. Dairy products, such as cheese and milk, also contain casein protein, which stabilizes and repairs enamel.
- LEAFY GREENS AND VEGETABLES: Spinach and other leafy greens are loaded with fiber, which is excellent for your teeth because it requires a lot of chewing to break down and generates saliva that cleans and rinses your teeth while also neutralizing acid.
- DRINK PLENTY OF WATER: Water keeps your mouth clean by washing away food particles and maintaining a high saliva level. Saliva is 95% water and contains proteins and minerals that keep the acid build-up at bay.
- CARROT STICKS: Raw carrots, and other raw vegetables and fruits in your diet can do wonders for your teeth. They require a lot of chewing, thus helping to strengthen your teeth. All the chewing also disrupts germs-filled plaque and cleanses the teeth and gums.
- GREEN TEA: This healing elixir has many research-backed benefits thanks to its powerful germs and disease-fighting antioxidants, which have the ability to protect teeth by preventing plaque from sticking to them
FLOSS YOUR TEETH
Proper flossing removes plaque and food particles in places where a toothbrush cannot easily reach — under the gum line and between your teeth. Because plaque build-up can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, daily flossing is highly recommended.
RINSE WITH AN ANTISEPTIC MOUTHWASH
Rinsing twice a day isn’t just a great way to keep your breath fresh. It’s the key to getting your whole mouth clean. The truth is that brushing alone only reaches 25% of your mouth. The power of the swish fights bacteria in your whole mouth, – teeth and gums. But it should be used twice a day to reach its deep-clean effectiveness. After all, germs are in your mouth all day, every day, and one swish only protects you for 12 hours.
CHEW SUGARLESS GUM
Studies have shown that chewing sugar-free gum after meals and snacks can help rinse off and neutralize the acids released by the bacteria in plaque, which are harmful to tooth enamel. Both the act of chewing and the flavor of the artificial sweeteners in the gum stimulate ten times the normal rate of saliva flow.
By following these teeth whitening aftercare tips, you can guarantee a long-lasting white smile for years to come.
It’s super important to look after your teeth.
