Try to remember to drink water every time you get thirsty instead of reaching for a soda. The more
often you choose water over soda, the more often you are deciding to protect your enamel instead
of wear it down. This also applies to other sugary beverages like sweetened teas and fruit juices.

Finding out whether a dentist has Saturday hours could help you make a decision when it comes
to who you will go see for your dental care. Some people simply can't get away during the week
and need to take care of appointments on the weekends. Think about your own needs and
proceed from there.

When choosing a dentist, don't forget to think about location. Do you work? Would it be more
convenient to go to someone that is near your office? Or would you prefer to go to someone that is
close to your house? If it is inconvenient to get to your dentist, you might not go, which is why it is
important to consider this factor.

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.

Never buy a mouthwash with alcohol in it! These products can dry out the mouth, letting bacteria
go wild and causing bad breath. This really defeats the purpose, doesn't it? It's great to use
mouthwash, but choose a natural option like mixing baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, salt and
water as a rinse.

Using mouthwash on a daily basis is a great way to maintain a healthy mouth. Mouthwash will
help pervent periodontal disease. It kills bacteria in your mouth and improves your overall mouth
health. Another benefit to using mouthwash is that it will keep your breath fresh. Even if you have
a beautiful smile, having bad breath will reduce your smiles' positive impact.

Believe it or not, saliva is actually your teeth's best friend! Natural saliva contains minerals,
enamel-strengthening antibacterial properties and the power to neutralize acid. If you are a woman
over the age of 50, menopause may be causing dry mouth, which, then leads to bad breath.
Specially formulated dry mouth products can help to eliminate embarrassing odors caused by a
lack of saliva.

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.

Seeking dental care is a process that makes many people quite nervous indeed. Education is
critical in conquering such fears, but it can sometimes be difficult to acquire. By keeping the above
advice close at hand, you will have everything you need to make a smart decision and find a
provider to whom you can turn for years to come.
