If you think that a having a healthy smile takes too much time and effort, think again. Dental care can be fast and easy, as long as you follow these 10 trusted tips for better teeth and a brighter smile.

Visit an Affordable Dentist Regularly

First, find the best dentist for you. Then, get regular check-ups and cleanings to prevent and treat any problems.

Brush Your Teeth on a Regular Basis

This is a must for at-home dental care. Brushing cleans teeth, removes built-up plaque, massages the gums, prevents gum disease and freshens your breath. Brush at least twice a day, everyday.

Get a New Toothbrush Every Three Months

A brush’s bristles can become worn over time, which reduces their cleaning ability. That’s why the best dentists recommend buying a new toothbrush every three months, or even more often if yours looks worn or you’ve recently been sick.

Use s Soft Touch with a Soft-Bristled Brush

Use gentle, light pressure and choose a soft-bristled brush to avoid eroding the delicate tooth enamel and causing gums to recede.

Boost Your Brushing with Dental Aids

Brushing is good, but using floss and mouth rinse everyday is even better for your dental health. Ask an affordable dentist about the right tools for you.

Rinse If You Can’t Brush

If you can’t brush after a meal, at least rinse your mouth with water to remove the excess food debris that clings to teeth and causes decay.

Cut Down on Sugar

Sugars in foods and beverages feed dental decay and cause many dental care problems. Try to reduce your sugar intake to improve your dental health.

Stop Smoking

This dangerous habit is bad for health and leads to many dental care issues. Simply avoid tobacco to avoid these problems.

Keep Your Kids from Hurting Their Teeth

Discourage your child from developing bad dental habits, such as sucking their thumb, chewing on toys, and sleeping with a bottle. All of these can lead to serious dental problems, so stop these habits if you spot them.

Care for Kids’ Teeth Correctly

Get a fluoridated toothpaste and mouth rinse for children to make their teeth more resistant to decay and much stronger overall. Also, start taking them to a pediatric dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups by their first birthday.
