Dental Hygiene: Getting and keeping a healthy, beautiful smile

Brushing and Flossing Your Teeth

You've been brushing your teeth for years and years. But how do you know if you're brushing properly? Shoving your toothbrush every which way inside your mouth in vigorous strokes hardly equates an efficient brushing technique.

Dentists and cosmetic dentists explain how to properly brush their teeth in order to prevent cavities, gum disease and gingivitis to their clients.

Maintaining dental hygiene requires some work. To brush your teeth properly, use gentle, circular motions on the inner and outer surfaces of your teeth. Dentists strongly remind their clients to brush gently as forceful strokes result in gum reduction.

While most people brush for only about a minute, dentists recommend that people brush their teeth for at least two minutes.
In order to maintain good dental hygiene, invest in a power toothbrush with a two-minute timer so that you give yourself adequate time to clean your teeth.

What about flossing? Every dentist will tell you that flossing is a crucial part of keeping healthy dental hygiene. Like brushing, most people don't even know the proper way to floss.

First of all, wrap 15 inches of floss around your middle fingers of both hands. Shift the floss back and forth until you hit your gums, and maneuver the floss gently up and down. Avoid pressing the floss further down once you hit your gums.

Sustaining a healthy dental hygiene requires skill and dedication. Most people brush their teeth carelessly, as they only focus on finishing their morning/nightly regimen. Dentists and cosmetic dentists urge their clients to brush and floss regularly, properly and efficiently.

A Healthy Diet Enhances your Dental Hygiene

What does a healthy dental routine consist of? How can you improve your dental hygiene?

Other than the obvious regular brushing and flossing regimen, a healthy, balanced diet also optimizes a great dental routine. Adopting a diet rich in antioxidants and vitamins improves your dental health and the aesthetics of your teeth.

Eating a diet full of essential nutrients promotes healthy teeth and gums. Developing a healthy diet from an early age increases your chances of maintaining that lifestyle into adulthood.

Incorporating a healthy diet full of fresh fruit and vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, kale, red and yellow peppers, apples, berries and plums as well as calcium creates a healthy dental routine.

Stay away from refined sugars and eat more of fresh, vitamin-rich foods to ensure better dental health and hygiene. Good dental hygiene makes you look younger and healthier with more aesthetically pleasing gums and teeth. And when you look better and younger, you feel better and younger.

Healthy diets promote good dental hygiene.
By eating right, you're already improving your dental hygiene.
