ORAL HEALTH TIPS
It's no secret that the general recommendation is to brush at least twice a day. Still, many of us continue to neglect brushing our teeth at night. But brushing before bed gets rid of the germs and plaque that accumulate throughout the day and must clean your tongue too because Plaque can also build up on your tongue.
The way you brush is equally important in fact, doing a poor job of brushing your teeth is almost as bad as not brushing at all. Take your time, moving the toothbrush in gentle, circular motions to remove plaque. Unremoved plaque can harden, leading to calculus buildup and gingivitis (early gum disease) tooth lose etc.
Many who brush regularly neglect to floss.
"Flossing is not just for getting those little pieces of Chinese food or broccoli that may be getting stuck in between your teeth," says Jonathan Schwartz, DDS.
"It's really a way to stimulate the gums, reduce plaque, and help lower inflammation in the area."
Water continues to be the best beverage for your overall health - including oral health. Also, as a rule of thumb, Schwartz recommends drinking water after every meal. This can help wash out some of the negative effects of sticky and acidic foods and beverages in between brushes. So drink more water to stay healthy.
