The more you know, the more you can start to feel like most things you put in your mouth are enemies of your tooth enamel and gums. While this may be true, the good news is that you can counteract the damage by following these healthy-mouth steps to replace lost minerals, keep teeth strong and reverse damage brought about by germs.
TIP #1: Floss at Least Once Daily27
Flossing removes food particles and bacterial debris between the tooth and gum, making bacteria less likely to stick around and turn into hard tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional and professional dental tools.
TIP #2: Change Your Toothbrushes27
Replace your toothbrush every 2-3 months. Be sure to use soft-bristle brushes that are gentle on the gums. Also, consider an electric toothbrush that cleans teeth effectively without being too abrasive.
TIP #3: Use Mouthwash28
Rinsing with a fluoride-containing mouthwash, like TEETH AND GUM DEFENCE LISTERINE®, helps to kill the germs that cause plaque, gingivitis and bad breath; while strengthening teeth, increasing resistance to acid attacks, demineralisation and dental caries.
