Dental Health—key to a healthy smile


As a healthy mind resides in a healthy body so also a beautiful smile tells the tale of a good dental health. Our teeth are one of the most important tools but unfortunately the most neglected one. We really do not bother about our teeth till the time we see stains of blood while brushing or experience excruciating tooth ache. Moreover, most of us fears to approach a dentist as this may cost him a small fortune. In this article we will discuss some of the basics of dental care and how we can maintain a proper dental hygiene so that we can keep the dentist at bay.
First Thing First—choosing a toothbrush
Regular brushing is the key to a good dental health which prevents various periodontal diseases and keeps your teeth plaque free. It is equally important to choose the right tooth brush and know how to brush correctly. Dentists advise to brush twice a day i.e. in the morning and before going to bed at least for three minutes each time and floss properly.
Although some ancient civilizations used frayed twigs to clean their teeth, these days toothbrushes come in a variety of manual and powered forms. And the first step to taking good care of your mouth is to choose a toothbrush that's right for you.
Choose a brush with IDA (Indian Dental Association) seal on it as this ensures that the bristles are not too hard. Also make sure that the brush is comfortable to handle and it fits comfortably in your mouth.
Here are some other tips to keep in mind when choosing a toothbrush. You'll want to pick one that:
  • Has bristles that are softer rather than harder
  • Fits your mouth size. If you have a small mouth, choose a small toothbrush and if you have a large mouth, pick a large toothbrush.
  • Is easy to use, whether it's a powered or a manual toothbrush

  5. Oral discoloration is an issue that many people deal with. This is mainly due to the fact that it doesn't take much for this problem to occur. This particular issue could come as the result of habits such as excessive coffee drinking, smoking and even drinking acidic beverages. No matter how many times some people may brush their teeth and use mouthwash, they still can't seem to get rid of the stains.
