There is no doubt that the access to information, on any topic, is as easy as a click of the button thanks to the internet. However, this makes it difficult to determine what is actually important! When it comes to your oral health, Dr. Virani keeps your individualized needs in mind and determines a treatment plan based on what is best for YOU!
At Dentistryon88, we recommend the following tips to help you achieve and maintain a healthier smile!
BRUSH YOUR TEETH EVERY DAY!
This is definitely something you’ve been told since your early days as a child! Brushing your teeth removes leftover food particles that can bond with saliva and create plaque. These particles aid in feeding the bacteria that naturally live in our mouths. Their digestive acids can eat through our tooth enamel, causing tooth decay.
FLOSS, FLOSS, FLOSS!
Flossing assists in removing plaque from places that your toothbrush cannot reach. If plaque stays in these areas, you may develop gum disease or tooth decay!
LIMIT SUGAR INTAKE (YES, THAT MEANS SUGARY DRINKS!)
Who doesn’t love an ice-cold cola on a hot day? Did you know that the bacteria in our mouths thrive on sugar? Sugar is a major contributor to tooth decay, meaning reduced amounts of sugar in your diet, in combination with regular brushing and flossing, can help keep bacteria under control.
SEE THE DENTIST! (MINIMUM TWICE A YEAR!)
Regular dental visits are not only necessary but aid in preserving and maintaining your oral health. Dr. Virani is trained to recognize early signs of tooth decay, gum disease and a variety of other concerns before they turn to severe. This can not only help you avoid expensive dental procedures but can catch the issue before it becomes a problem!
MAINTAIN A HEALTHY DIET!
Not only is this important for your oral health, but your overall health as well! Foods that require a lot of chewing (FRUITS & VEGGIES) are good for the teeth because more saliva means the mouth is naturally washed out more often.
Some other tips include;
- Staying hydrated
- Avoiding chewing hard items
- Brushing your tongue
- Taking care of your toothbrush
