10 Best Ways To Protect A Beautiful Smile?


The following are the list of ten oral hygiene steps that can help you keep a winning smile.

Brush your Teeth at least twice a day

Brush your teeth twice a day or if possible after each meal with a soft-bristled brush. The shape and size of your brush should appropriate to your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily. When you brush your teeth, place your toothbrush at 45-degree angle to the gums. Gently move the brush front and back in short strokes and also clean inside surfaces of front teeth and chewing surfaces of the back teeth .


Flossing can be one of the most hardest but most important habits that you need to develop. Flossing removes food particles and debris on your teeth that cannot be removed by brushing. Flossing should be done on your daily basis.

Consume Vitamins that are needed for Strong Teeth

Calcium is a must and should to maintain strong teeth. It is also important to maintain strong bones. Good sources of calcium include milk, yogurt, carrots, celery, broccoli, nuts and fortified juices.

Reduce Coffee, Tea ,Soda and Alcohol Intake

While these beverages have the phosphorus content, a mineral that is necessary for strong teeth, they are also rich in sugar and corn syrup content. These content will make your teeth appear discolored and dull. For this reason, it is recommended to drink a lot of milk and water as opposed to coffee or soda.

Avoid Consuming Tobacco and also Smoking

This is one of the biggest favor you can do for your teeth. Consuming tobacco will stain your teeth and will cause bad breath and also leads to oral cancer.

Don't brush immediately after having a drink

When you brush immediately after having a drink like soda or other acidic beverages, the acid in the drink may combine with the abrasive action of your brushing and can erode your tooth enamel.

Use Mouthwash

As already mentioned brushing and flossing your teeth are two important aspects of oral health. The third part is mouthwash. Mouthwash is a great way to remove bacteria from your mouth. It’ll keep your teeth clean, strong and will also improve the smell of your breath.

Clean Your Tongue

Clean your tongue by using a professional tongue cleaner to remove bacteria and to have fresh breath.
