A good set of teeth not only enhances our appearance, but they also helps us enjoy our food. So, it is essential to take good care of our teeth                                                                                     keep your teeth healthy with these dental health tips .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   # 1:  Brush twice a day   

70% of dental problems can be solved, if we brush 2 times a day. Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day for a minimum of 2-4minutes, to get rid of plaque.

# 2: Use good products                                                  

   To get rid of all the food particles, use a good toothbrush. Choose a scientifically designed toothbrush, which will help you reach all corners in your mouth. Also, choose a good fluoride based toothpaste. # 3: Rinse well 
 If you are a regular snacker, then you must  rinse your mouth thoroughly after every snack. You can even gargle with a good mouthwash, if you want to keep tooth decay away. # 4: No smoking

Smoking not only harms our body, but also deteriorates our teeth. The nicotine present in cigarettes causes tooth decay and bad breathe. So, avoid smoking and chewing tobacco.      # 5: Eat a healthy diet  

Just practicing good dental habits is not good enough. For strong teeth, you need to eat a diet full of nutrients. Include loads of vitamin B food in your diet to make your teeth strong and healthy.
# 6: Avoid aerated drinks
Stay away from colas and other aerated drinks, because they cause stains on our teeth. If you wish to drink colas, try using a straw to minimize the stains on your teeth. 
# 7: Floss
Flossing helps to maintain hygiene and remove plaque from teeth. So, floss your teeth at least twice a week. 

# 8: Include dairy in your diet for strong teeth 

Dairy products decrease gum diseases and help develop and maintain the whiteness of our teeth. Along with protecting and strengthening the enamel, hard cheese like cheddar, is very effective for cleaning and whitening the teeth.
# 9: Change your toothbrush
If you have been using your toothbrush for a year, then replace it with a new one as soon as possible. As soon as you notice the bristles of your toothbrush getting frayed, it is time to replace your toothbrush. 
# 10: Visit a dentist

To maintain good oral hygiene, visit your dentist at least once a year. Besides, this will help you maintain good strong healthy teeth.


  1. Brushing alone is not enough to achieve good oral health. Flossing is important because it removes the food debris stuck in between your teeth that a brush can’t reach. These substances are usually the ones that cause tooth decay and other gum diseases. So, make sure that you include flossing in your kid’s daily oral hygiene.

  2. I always brush my teeth first thing in the morning, and right after I eat, but I have never thought about rinsing in between those meals. During work, and carpooling the kids around, I spend a lot of time snacking. After reading this, I realized I need to do better at rinsing!
