To keep your smile safe from the risk of dental damage, an oral hygiene routine will be needed. Not only will you need to use safe and effective tools, but you need to be employing the proper cleaning procedures to effectively rid your mouth of any harmful acids and debris that can potentially give rise to many ailments such as dental erosion. To avoid cavities, keep your smile safe whenever possible.
To strengthen your smile, always make sure you’re practicing safe and effective cavity prevention techniques. This includes optimizing your oral health care treatment by brushing and flossing with safe and effective non-abrasive tools. Be sure to use non-abrasive toothpaste and soft-bristled toothbrushes. In addition, shred-resistant floss or interdental cleaners such as water flossers can be used. For additional help, consider supplementing your oral health care with mouthwash or sugarless chewing gum.
Sugarless chewing gum has been proven to be effective for cavity prevention because it can help promote the abundance of saliva. Saliva is a naturally occurring substance in your mouth that is extremely effective for eliminating the risk of dental erosion due to the fact that it neutralizes acids and harmful food debris buildup in your mouth. Similarly, you must actively avoid unhealthy substances in your diet. Be sure to eat nutritious foods that are free of sugars and starches, as these products are known to be converted into harmful acids in your mouth. In addition, eat healthy foods that are high in enamel building minerals such as calcium and phosphorus.
