1.AVOID STAINING FOODS :

Tea, Coffee, Pan, Cigarette, Dark Sauces, Colas are the culprits whose regular intake not only destroys our teeth but also leads to various oral diseases like Plaques, Halitosis, Tumors etc.
The best solution is to limit their use and try to brush at least after 30 minutes of consuming them.

2. PROPER ANGLE :

Grip your tooth brush like a pencil keeping at 45 degree angle towards the meeting point of teeth and gums  and brush by moving in a circular motion.
Don't forget to clean your tongue this will give you relief from Bad breath..

 3. PRACTISE FLOSSING : 

By Flossing, the tight spaces between tooth and under the gum line can be reached, removing the causing bacteria left behind.
 Floss daily with holding it between thumb and fingers after winding around middle finger, rubbing it  gently over the tooth surfaces.

4. EATING FIRM AND RAW :

Eating foods that are firm, raw and crisps acts as a Natural Tooth Brush and clean the tooth as they are eaten and chewed: Apple, Carrots, Celery, popcorn etc.  or using a MISWAK made from a tooth brush tree(PEELU).

5. REPLACE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH :

Change your brush and head (in case of electric tooth brush) every 2-3 months. Old brushes harbour bacteria. It should be augmented with FLUORIDE TOOTH PASTE.

Keep it upright position.
Any person's smile can make or break the appearance so if you are long overdue for a Dental Check up, now its right time to have an appointment.
