10 Tips for a Better Oral Care

10 Tips for a Better Oral Care
Maintaining good oral health is essential for a bright smile and overall well-being. At Edinco, we believe that caring for your teeth should be a lifelong commitment, and we're here to help you achieve that. Here are 10 tips to keep your teeth healthy and your smile radiant:

1. Brush Before Bed: Make it a habit to brush your teeth at least twice a day, including before bedtime. Nighttime brushing removes the germs and plaque accumulated during the day, preventing oral issues.

2. Brush Properly: The brushing technique matters. Use gentle, circular motions to effectively remove plaque and prevent calculus buildup and early gum disease.

3. Don’t Forget Your Tongue: Plaque can accumulate on your tongue, leading to bad breath and other oral health problems. Remember to brush your tongue every time you brush your teeth gently.

4. Prioritize Flossing: Flossing is as important as brushing, as it stimulates the gums, reduces plaque, and lowers inflammation. Aim to floss at least once a day for optimal oral health.

5. Overcome Flossing Challenges: If you find flossing difficult, consider using dental flossers or other tools to make the process easier, especially for children or older adults with arthritis.

6. Consider Mouthwash: Mouthwash complements brushing and flossing by reducing acid, cleaning hard-to-reach areas, and remineralising teeth. Ask your dentist for recommendations tailored to your needs.

7. Stay Hydrated: Water is essential for overall health and oral health. Drinking water after meals helps wash away food particles and reduces the effects of acidic or sticky foods on teeth.

8. Choose Crunchy Fruits and Vegetables: Opt for fresh, crunchy produce over processed foods for better oral health. Chewing harder foods promotes jaw strength and cleans teeth naturally.

9. Limit Sugary and Acidic Foods: Sugars and acids in food and beverages can erode tooth enamel, leading to cavities. While indulging occasionally is okay, moderation is key to protecting your teeth.

10. Regular Dental Checkups: Even with excellent oral hygiene habits, regular dental visits are essential. Biannual checkups allow your dentist to remove plaque, detect cavities early, and address any potential issues promptly.
