Tips on Dental Care

Taking easy steps to create a healthy set of teeth is a deliberate habit you must maintain, if you want to keep dental problem at bay. Gum disease happens to be one of the commonest diseases in the world and if untreated can lead to the loss of all the teeth over time.

Gum disease is primarily caused by dental plaque and calculus with usually results from poor oral hygiene. Dental plaque can be easily removed through regular brushing and flossing.

Remember it takes only 21 days to form a habit. Once you brush twice for 21 days it is likely to form par of you. Don't stop there, clean your teeth at least for two minutes.

Prevent gum disease by flossing between your teeth.This is where food get stuck. Flossing helps to remove food traps in between your teeth better than using toothpicks.

Avoid the use of hard bristled tooth brushes unless recommended by your dentist. Dispose your brush after three months. And if you have any problem while brushing always use soft toothbrushes.
