Personal hygiene is a very important thing. It means that you must keep yourself clean, take bath daily, trip your nails and keep them clean, wash your hair regularly and brush at least twice a day. We all try to follow these basic personal hygiene points I just mentioned, however, the part of brushing teeth at least twice a day is often ignored. Most of the people brush their teeth only once a day. On the other hand, it is advisable for your proper dental care that you must brush your teeth in the morning and before going to bed and between these two times, you must brush your teeth every time you eat something. This helps remove all the remains of food in your mouth, thus saving them from causing any bacteria. No matter how logical this all might sound, we find it very difficult to follow. And we do not follow this small advice, we get cavities, bad breathe and lot of other dental and mouth related problems. On the contrary following this small routine would have helped you in retaining your natural teeth. So what do the dentists say about this. All the dentists have a consensus over the way dental care should be undertaken. They suggest that you brush your teeth regularly and properly. Then you must also floss your teeth so as to remove anything stuck in between the teeth. Do both of these things but be gentle otherwise you might damage your gums. Have a healthy diet. You need to take the required level of calcium in your daily diet so as to keep your teeth strong. A balanced diet will ensure overall health of your mouth. Avoid smoking or tobacco in any form. It stains your teeth and is bad for your mouth as it can cause mouth cancer. The dental care that you must follow should be done with heart and not due to any pressure. You must learn about it and realize that you are doing it for your own health. If you do not take proper dental care it will lead to other health problems as well. Visit your dentist regularly, that an important part of dental care. Ask for his advice as he will give you the best dental care guidance depending upon the condition of your teeth. Follow the routine that your dentist tells you in order to have a beautiful smile and for proper dental care.
