One of the most noticeable things about a person is their smile, and it can affect everything from interpersonal to professional relationships. Much more than that, your teeth are used every day to help you consume food, and are clearly a critical part of the way we nourish ourselves. For these reasons, it is critically important to practice proper oral care, even if you have a busy schedule.
Maintaining good oral hygiene only takes a few minutes a day and can be done in the comfort of your One 51 Place apartment. Here’s what most dental experts recommend:
• Brush your teeth two to three times a day. Ideally, it’s best to brush after every meal, but if you’re out and about during the afternoon, a thorough brushing at home (lasting at least two minutes) in the morning and at night is usually enough.
• While brushing, use your toothbrush to scrape your tongue. Not only will this give you better breath, but it will temporarily remove various bacteria that live on your tongue and slow the accumulation of plaque on your teeth.
• Floss your teeth once a day, especially if you’ve just eaten a meal that has sticky food components, or if you feel a bit of food stuck between your teeth. This will help to eliminate the chance of you developing cavities in the hard-to-reach places that your toothbrush can’t clean.
• Use mouthwash at least once a day, either in the morning or before bed at night. Not only will using a powerful mouthwash eliminate plaque-causing bacteria, but it will leave your breath smelling fresh for hours.
By following these tips on a daily basis, you’ll be able to keep your teeth and gums as healthy and attractive as possible right from your apartment in Alachua, FL.
