Home Care Tips to avoid tooth decay and gum disease

dental home care

1. Drink and rinse with water after eating or drinking to remove acids and restore pH levels

2. Brush twice daily for at least 2 minutes using circular, 45 degree movements

3. Floss daily and ensure that you are flossing properly under the gums where your toothbrush cannot reach

4. Reduce sugary drinks and snacks from your diet.  Sugars feed bacteria in your mouth

5. Increase mineral rich foods found in natural dairy and vegetables as they strengthen your teeth

6. Visit the dentist regularly to prevent heavy plaque and tartar buildup and to check for propblems so that they can be attended to as early as possible
