Smile – the best oral health is in your hands

There’s always a feeling in us that dental diagnostics and treatment is very expensive. A tooth problem not just sets in a throbbing physical pain but also a much dreaded mental ache which says – “Oh God, here comes a treatment that’s going to create a hole in my pocket!” Do you too get this feeling at times? If yes, then we have the right answer to soothe your pain. Here’s good news. Diagnopein now offers complete dental diagnostics and treatment at an affordable price.

Opting for dental treatment is a later stage when your dental/ oral health is suffering. There are ways you can avoid this treatment. Let’s see some great tips for healthy gums and teeth.

Don’t hit the sack at night without brushing your teeth – There’s a general recommendation to brush your teeth twice a day. But most of us feel lazy and neglect night time brushing. Don’t do that. Brush your teeth before going to bed at night to get rid of germs and plaque that has accumulated throughout the day.

Brush correctly – The way you brush is crucial — in fact, poorly brushing your teeth is almost as bad as not brushing at all. Take your time, moving the toothbrush in gentle, circular motions to remove plaque. If the plaque is not removed, it can harden, leading to calculus build up and gingivitis which is an early gum disease.

Clean your tongue – We might be brushing our teeth well but many of us tend to neglect tongue hygiene. Plaque tends to accumulate on the tongue too. This can lead to bad mouth dour and can cause other oral health problems. So every time you brush your teeth, make sure you gently clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner.

Use a tooth paste that has Fluoride – Remember that when it comes to tooth pastes, there are more important elements to look for than the whitening power and flavours like fluoride content. No matter which flavour or colour of toothpaste you choose, make sure it has fluoride in it. This is because fluoride fights tooth decay. It fights germs that cause tooth decay and also provides a protective layer over your teeth.

Make use of dental floss – Flossing your teeth is as important as brushing them. Many who brush regularly don’t floss. Flossing not only removes those tiny particles that are stuck in your teeth but it also stimulates the gums and helps in removing plaque. It also helps lower inflammation in the area where you floss.

Try and use mouthwash – Mouthwash helps in three ways – It reduces the amount of acid in the mouth, cleans hard-to-brush areas in and around the gums, and re-mineralizes the teeth. For more sensitive teeth, prescription mouthwashes are also available. Mouthwash also helps prevent foul mouth odour.

Drink plenty of water – Water is best for your overall health along with oral health. Drinking water after every meal can help wash out the negative effects of sticky and acidic foods and beverages in between brushing.

Limit intake of acidic and sugary foods – The sugar that you consume ultimately gets converted into acid that tends to corrode the outer enamel of your teeth. Acidic foods, teas and coffee also have the same effect on your teeth. So try and limit the consumption of such foods.

Visit your dentist once every 6 months – In our busy life, we might neglect our dental health. But it’s wiser to pay a visit to your dentist every 6 months to ensure healthy oral health.

If you follow the above tips, you’ll enjoy good oral health. In case you have any dental health issues, feel free to book an appointment with Diagnopein Diagnostics and Dental Care Services to avail excellent dental diagnosis and treatment at a price that won’t pinch your wallet.
