5 Ways to Keep a Healthy Mouth 0
Healthy diet and reducing sugar intake
Maintaining a balanced diet will enable you to keep a healthy mouth as the amount of sugar consumed can be reduced. Change sugar in your tea and coffee to sweetener or even better cut it out completely. Cut out snacking and just eat at meal times this will reduce the amount of acid attacks on your teeth and give your teeth chance to recover from the food you have just eaten.
Regular dental examinations
The frequency of your dental examination is governed by how healthy your mouth is and the risk of developing caries. By maintaining that your mouth is monitored by a professional on a regular basis it will ensure that you continue to maintain a healthy mouth. Your dentist will not only monitor your teeth but also the soft tissues in your mouth and possibly your head and neck. An accurate record is kept so that any underlying issues are reviewed accordingly.
