Don't use a hard toothbrush when brushing your teeth. Soft and medium brushes are gentle on the
teeth, ensuring your enamel stays securely in place. Hard bristles can cause problems that lead to
cavities, decay and breakage. It's best to ask your dentist which brush brand he recommends
when you visit.


It is important that you go to the dentist to have your teeth cleaned every six months. Having a
professional cleaning helps to get rid of tarter build up and polishes your teeth so that they look
their best. It can also help to spot cavities that might be hiding where you can't see them.


Invest in one of those small hand-held mirrors like your dentist uses in his office. It can help you to
spot plaque and tarter build-up in places not accessible to the naked eye and can assist you when
you've got something stuck in between teeth. You can also use it to inspect your mouth for
anomalies that may indicate underlying health issues.


If you see even a small amount of blood in your mouth after brushing your teeth, it is time to make
an appointment with your dentist or periodontist. Bleeding gums are a possible indicator of gum
disease, which can become seriously problematic if it goes untreated. Gum disease makes you
more vulnerable to tooth loss, bone loss, diabetes and infections.


Eat fresh fruit whenever possible, even if you prefer the taste of dried fruit. Most brands of dried
fruit contain nearly as much sugar as candy. This is a way to inadvertently expose your teeth to
more sugar than they can possibly handle. Only eat a few if you insist on having some.
Bad Breath


Be vigilant about taking care of your teeth. If you notice anything that concerns you, make sure
you call your dentist to see if you need to come in for an extra appointment. Some signs to watch
out for are bleeding gums, sensitivity to cold or hot or excessively bad breath throughout the day.


Brush your tongue. Your tongue needs attention just like your teeth and gums do. Use your
toothbrush and brush your tongue just like you brush your teeth. Not only is this good for your
dental health, but it can help with any bad breath you may be experiencing, too.


Do you have bad breath? You should clean your tongue more regularly. Invest in some tongue
scrapers and use them after each meal to remove bacterias from your tongue. Rinsing your mouth
with an anti-bacterial mouth wash can help too. If the problem persists, go to your dentist to find
out what is causing your bad breath.


If you suffer from bad breath, there may be an underlying medical condition. To ensure that your
bad breath is not from an underlying medical condition visit your dentist and primary care
physician. If after finding you have no underlying medical conditions you still have bad breath,
consider using a mouthwash after brushing and using breath mints or chewing gum in between
brushing your teeth.


Oral hygiene is important, even if you do not have any natural teeth. Just as you would brush your
teeth, make sure that you brush your dentures. It is also important to brush your tongue or use a
tongue scraper, which also gets rid of bacteria that cause bad breath.


As this guide just told you, it's not terribly difficult to take care of your oral hygiene. By getting
yourself to practice the above advice, you'll make it a habit to practice good oral hygiene. Just be
sure that you ask a dentist before doing anything and never forget to brush and floss.
