What to do for his teeth? Our teeth are unfortunately much more fragile than we think. Over the years, they lose their enamel and are therefore much more fragile and require more care.
In this article, I offer you some simple and quick tips and actions to protect your teeth naturally at home.
1. Protect teeth with water
It may seem like a simplistic tip, but the simple act of drinking water will help protect your teeth on a daily basis. As you know sugary juices or worse carbonated drinks are extremely harmful to teeth and gums.
Indeed, some drinks have a higher acidity rate than others, which is not good at all for teeth and enamel erosion. Hence the importance of opting for water when you have a craving to drink something.
If you absolutely want to drink soft drinks then it is important to drink quickly.
It is best not to keep the liquid in your mouth for too long, otherwise you risk damaging your teeth even more quickly. You can even use a straw so that the liquid is as little as possible in contact with the teeth.
2. Protect your teeth with good brushing
How do you want to have beautiful teeth and above all how do you want to protect them if you don’t take the time to brush your teeth properly? Here are some practical tips and advice for brushing your teeth properly:
- Brush your teeth after each meal.
- Brush your teeth for 3 or 4 minutes.
- Chew sugar-free gum when brushing is not possible.
- Use a toothbrush with soft bristles to avoid attacking the gums.
- Use a quality toothpaste according to his dentition.
When brushing your teeth, go gently. This way, you won’t rush your teeth and you’ll have a better chance of maximizing brushing efficiency by going everywhere. It is really very important to protect your teeth.
3. Eating fruit is good for your health… But for your teeth?
We can never repeat it enough, but eating fruit is good for your health, but can it be harmful to the health of your teeth? Unfortunately many fruits contain a lot of sugar and sugar can actually harm the protection of teeth.
Eat chewable fruit!
It is therefore better to eat certain fruits than others when it comes to protecting the teeth. The apple, for example, is really an excellent choice of fruit, as are pears and peaches. Also avoid eating stewed fruit or smoothies.
Cut the fruit into small pieces!
By cutting your fruit into small bites, you will chew for less time and your teeth will therefore be less exposed to their acidity. A simple little trick to protect your teeth.
Beware of citrus aromas!
We are used to adding, for example, slices of lime or lemon to some of our beverages. Well to further protect our teeth from the havoc that acidity can do, you could substitute these citrus fruits for mint leaves instead. To protect your teeth, it’s a simple and yet very effective trick.
4. Eat cheese to protect your teeth
Did you know that cheese is really an excellent ally for healthy teeth? Cheese can even be a good solution if you can’t brush your teeth after a meal, for example.
Whether at school or at the office, after finishing lunch you can simply eat one or a few pieces of cheese to prevent tooth decay. But it is important to eat the cheese immediately after you finish eating.
Also, if you love to eat fruit, add small pieces of cheese as an accompaniment. The acidity will be further reduced and therefore less damaging to your teeth.
5. Floss daily
After brushing your teeth, it is important to get into the habit of flossing. By flossing you further eliminate the risk of getting tooth decay.
Flossing helps remove plaque and food left behind after brushing your teeth. This is why it is recommended to use dental floss for good oral hygiene.
Be careful not to force too much with the dental floss so as not to reach and damage the gums.
