Choose Healthy Snack Options

You’re better off avoiding candy and sugary drinks such as soda during the day. Plaque, which is a film of bacteria, constantly forms on your teeth. Sugary foods or drinks cause this bacteria to produce acids that attack tooth enamel, which leads to tooth decay. If you’re going to have a piece of candy, eat it for dessert and then brush your teeth.

Does Dental Cleaning Whiten Teeth?

The best place to start your quest for whiter teeth is at your dentist’s office. Routine cleanings (the ADA recommends every six months) can do wonders. A  whitening toothpaste also can make a big difference. Look for one that uses a non-bleaching action (the only kind of over-the-counter whitening toothpaste with the ADA Seal of Acceptance).

Heed the Brushing Basics

You’ve heard it a zillion times, but it’s so essential we have to remind you again: Brush, brush, brush! Brushing removes plaque, which builds up on the surfaces of your teeth. Dental technology has come a long way in the past few decades, but  brushing twice a day  and flossing once a day remain your best defenses against tooth decay and gum problems.

Here’s what you may not know: The American Dental Association┬« (ADA) recommends changing your toothbrush every three to four months. Another tip: Be careful of brushing too aggressively. Pressing too hard can wear away the enamel on your teeth.

Eat Well

Eat a well-balanced diet. To ensure the health of your teeth and gums, eat healthy food and avoid drinking excess alcohol, sugary sports drinks or sodas. If you smoke, quit now, as smoking can have a negative impact on your oral health. https://www.aae.org/specialty/communique/your-natural-teeth-are-worth-saving/
