Your teeth are important to your mouth, and a toothache will only just remind you why your teeth are important and why you ought to take proper care of them.
These are some important rules you must not ignore.
1. Brush your teeth at least twice daily
This is a tip that’s taught from elementary school, and brushing your teeth at least twice daily will help reduce the impact of bacteria on the teeth.
Remember to brush thoroughly in an up and down motion.
2. Don’t brush too hard
Scrubbing your teeth vigorously can damage your gumline, lead to toothache and is even a waste of time, as all the teeth need is a gentle up and down motion across the surface.
3. Avoid caffeinated rinks
Food acids can cause severe damage to the teeth in the long run. Try as much as possible to limit your intake of sugary foods, tea, coffee and soda. Try as much as possible to use a straw.
4. Use a toothpaste that contains fluoride
Fluoridated toothpaste are the best for your teeth, as they help harden the tooth enamel and reduce the risk of decay.
5. Avoid using your teeth as a tool
A lot of people use their teeth as a bottle opener, a nail cutter and to do all manner of things. This is very harmful to the teeth, and avoid chewing ice blocks as well; the temperature is too extreme for your teeth.
6. Don’t fail to visit your dentist regularly for checkups, especially when you notice pains or anything strange.
If you want your teeth to serve you well till old age, then you must take care of it from your young age.
