A dazzling smile and a good dental health are not things you get in the snap of a finger! We have already told you about food and drinks you should avoid for a perfect smile. Now let’s focus on good daily habits you should have to get you healthy and perfect white teeth. Small actions that make a big difference!
1. Regular tooth brushing
A basic rule for shiny and healthy teeth! It is recommended to brush your teeth at least twice a day, for 2 minutes minimum. Choose a fluoride toothpaste. Eventually, use a mouthwash, that’s even better for your teeth.
2. Drink, drink, drink…!
It’s not only important to stay hydrated. Drinking water regularly, especially after having a little snack, washes the acid away, and flushes food residues, which is a good way to prevent dental plaque and cavities.
3. Eat high-fiber food
They are good for your health and they contribute in reducing the dental plaque! Among the things you should add to your next shopping list: apples, celery, raw vegetable or even coconut.
When eating these, you chew more than usual, which produces more saliva to clean your mouth and maintain the acid-base balance.
Bonus: as for dairy products, their calcium and protein contents strengthen your gums and enamel.
4. Oil pulling
Have you ever heard of it? It comes from the traditional Indian medicine. It’s a 10 to 15-daily-mouthwash with vegetable oil (coconut, sesame, olive…)
