Being healthier is something we should all strive for. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s an easy task; Knowing to eat healthier and get exercise and actually doing it are two completely different things. The beginning of the year is a great time to set new health goals for your body and build a routine to help maintain those goals.
Your mouth is a very important part of your body and when you are able to keep it healthy, the rest of your body is able to benefit as well. Here are some tips that will help keep your mouth as healthy as possible.
– Brush your teeth just before you go to bed and before you have anything to eat or drink at breakfast
– It is better for your teeth and general health if you eat 3 meals a day plus no more than two snacks, instead of having lots of snack attacks
– Always tell your dentist about changes to your health, as it may help them prevent gum disease from developing
– Quitting smoking will help you reduce the chances of developing a whole host of oral health problems, including gum disease, tooth decay, yellow teeth and mouth cancer
The best tip of all however is to ensure that you keep up with your regular brushing, flossing and rinsing maintenance and to regularly see your Ottawa dentist for check ups and cleanings.
