• Brush your teeth at least two times every day, once after you wake up once before you sleep at night.
• Floss after every meal. Most tooth brushes can’t reach the tiny crevices (gaps) between teeth where food gets stuck.
• You should also use rinse your mouth wash along post brushing and flossing.
• Make sure you drink lots of water through the day. This helps to wash off any food particles which can get stuck.
• Avoid sugary foods since that is what germs thrive on to make acid. This acid eventually leads to tooth decay.
• Try to reduce the amount of acid in contact with your teeth. Acid foods and drinks are also a main factor in tooth erosion. So, limit fizzy drinks and fruit juices as these tend to be acidic. Choose drinks that are much less acidic, such as still water, and milk, tea, or coffee (without sugar).
• If you must drink fizzy drinks and fruit juices, do so quickly. Don't swish them around your mouth or hold them in your mouth for any period of time.
• Consume a well-balanced diet. Foods or supplements rich in Vitamin C and Calcium promote dental well being.
• Quit smoking and using any tobacco based products.
