People having a bad oral health, face a lot of hardships. They cannot eat, talk or even sleep properly, such would be a scenario that at times even smiling in front of a camera men becomes difficult.

Now, we have to understand that great smile comes from good oral health and for that matter, we all are supposed to follow some basic rules. Here are some:

  1. Brushing twice a day, keeps the dentist away: Well, it’s always good to start from the most basic one. Since from the childhood, we all have been taught a common thing, i.e. brushing the teeth at least twice a day. Some people think this is only applicable to the children, but mind you, no one is immune from the wrath of cavities. They attack everyone irrespective of the age and class. Brushing the teeth twice a day (especially at night) won’t allow any bacteria or cavities to make a place over your teeth. This is the reason why brushing is considered as the mandatory thing. Plus, it would be very nice if you can add floss in this.
  2. Replace your toothbrush in regular interval: Due to regular interaction with the teeth, the bristles of your toothbrush tend to become hard and uncomfortable and could hurt your teeth. Replacing the toothbrush at regular interval (generally 3 months) not only helps you in brushing but also good for your oral health.
  3. Maintain your diet: Let’s face the fact, we all love to eat. After all who wouldn’t like to have a hot pizza in lunch. There’s nothing wrong in eating food, problem arises when we start eating anything in excess, for e.g Junk foods like burger and pizza. We must understand that we are not eating these snacks but these snacks are eating our teeth and cause cavities. We must include teeth friendly calcium rich diets like fruits and vegetables in our daily routine.
  4. Visit your dentist regularly: Your dentist is the best friend of your teeth and knows everything about them. We often ignore dentists because of the phobia of pain, but visiting them on a regular basis (once in 6 months) is something we should all do. We understand, some of the treatments incur a lot of pain, but it is done for the benefit of our oral health only. Above all, most of the dentists nowadays use local anesthesia while treating your teeth, which means pain is just a state of mind now.
  5. Transfer the etiquettes to others: Being virtuous is the best thing one can do. We should follow this and teach other people about the benefits of oral health. Especially to children, because oral health starts from an early age.

The above mentioned are the tips that should be followed religiously, afterall healthy teeth lead you to a healthy life.
