Are you looking to improve your oral health? Has your poor oral hygiene begun to affect your smile and are you looking to enhance your oral health to once again return your smile to optimum levels? If so, there are numerous oral health care tips and techniques you can use to improve your smile.

It is important to maintain effective oral healthcare by brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash daily. When brushing your teeth, also brush your tongue to limit and prevent the spread of bacteria. Mouthwash has been proven to be highly effective for use after meals. As an alternative, studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum after meals can also help prevent cavities and tooth decay.

It is important to monitor all foods and drinks you consume. Limit the intake of sugar, substances that are acidic, as well as bread, cereal, and chips, which can all help speed up dental erosion and plaque formation. Furthermore, avoid smoking, chewing tobacco, and recreational drugs, all of which can damage your teeth and gums. In addition, limit between-meal snacks which can also increase the risk of tooth decay.
