Tip # 1 Swish, Floss & Brush!
For the ULTIMATE way to brush your teeth, follow these steps:
First, swish with a small capful of slightly diluted mouthwash for approximately 30 seconds. Second, floss your teeth. Third, brush your teeth, making sure that you brush your gums as well. Finish your routine by taking a small amount of toothpaste and brushing your entire oral cavity - that means your tongue (all sides, including underneath), your cheeks, the roof of your mouth, and the inner part of your lips.
Tip # 2 Yes You Can Chew Gum – Just Don’t Stick It Under Your Seat!
Sweet, sticky and starchy foods are broken down into simple sugars as you chew. Bacteria in your mouth feast on these sugars, producing acids which can cause decay, bad breath and gum disease, and eventually leading to bone loss. By chewing a sugarless gum right after meals for at least 15 minutes, you can reduce the acids that cause tooth decay by as much as 40%. Make sure you discard the gum properly after use - don't stick it under your seat!
Tip # 3 Prevent Discomfort & Save Money. . . Your Smile Will Thank You!
The tooth is the only part of your body that has no immune system nor the ability to repair itself. If you have a cavity, it will not close up or heal itself - ever. It will just get larger with time, eventually requiring a root canal or extraction. Catch it early and you'll prevent discomfort and save money. Your smile will thank you!
