Ways to Prevent Tooth and Gum Decay
First, brush your teeth and gums twice a day. Most people brush them in the morning when they wake up and then, again, at night right before they go to bed. If you can also brush after meals during the day, too, that’s a smart thing to do. Use fluoride toothpaste. Brush your tongue. Anytime you consume sugary snacks or dark-colored drinks such as soda pop or coffee, brush your teeth immediately afterward.
When you eat, food particles often get stuck in between your teeth where they can exacerbate decay. Obviously, you want to get rid of them before they do so. Flossing made the news recently because some said it was pointless. It’s not. Flossing gets rid of stuff the toothbrush can’t easily get to, and therefore helps clean the teeth and gums even better than if you just brushed them.
Besides brushing and flossing, keep a regular schedule of appointments with your dentist. Typically, you should be seeing the dentist every six months. At their office, you’ll get your teeth cleaned and your mouth checked for any problems.
While brushing, flossing and visiting the dentist are all “basics” for preventing tooth and gum decay, did you know Ambaya Gold offers a product called Dentist in a Bottle™?
