Keeping your teeth strong on a budget

Posted on 1/10/2022 by Brandon Cooley
Keeping your teeth strong on a budgetBrushing and flossing your teeth daily is vital for oral health, but there is more to take to obtain optimum dental health. There are other things to consider like fluoride and diet for a healthy mouth

Care of toothbrush

After brushing the teeth rinse your toothbrush, store it out in an open space in an upright position. The bacteria that grow in a moist environment might manifest in your toothbrush. When there is plenty of air flowing in between the bristle of the brush will help it stay dry. After every three months ensure to replace your toothbrush, for a child's brush make sure that it is changed sooner.

Brush your tongue

The tongue is a place that stores bacteria that cause decay. Brush your tongue while brushing your teeth or even after. The dead bacteria deposits on the tongue and can move to the teeth even when the teeth are brushed, this causes plaque formation and later tooth decay. Use a soft toothbrush to brush your tongue and remove the bacteria from your mouth.

Talk to the dentist

To receive oral care talk to the dentist or the dental hygienist. Go for regular dental checks and ensure that you talk and query the dentist about keeping and maintaining oral health. The dentist will assist even in the creation of daily brushing and flossing plan that suits the needs that you have. Dental checks up are also essential in making sure that oral problems are detected early enough before they become oral hazards.

Check on diet

To take care of your oral health even with a tight budget is possible. If you intake sugary foods and beverages this will cause trouble to your teeth. The sugar deposits in between the teeth cause plaque and can lead to cavities and dental caries. Stock up with drinks and foods that have calcium, vitamins, and sugar-free products.
