It is always a bit of a surprise to learn that many people still believe that proper at-home dental hygiene is something difficult to achieve. Here we provide a few simple yet effective ideas to help you keep your whole mouth happy and healthy.
- As much as you want to snack between meals, try to avoid this. The more times food is consumed throughout the day, the longer your teeth are exposed to harmful sugars and acids that can damage the enamel on your teeth over time.
- Never brush your teeth immediately after eating. Wait about an hour after eating, this gives your tooth enamel the chance to re-harden, thus protecting your teeth.
