If you are guilty of neglecting or abusing your pearly

whites in the early years of your life (by not

brushing regularly, by smoking a lot of cigarettes,

drinking a lot of caffeine, etc) you might find

yourself getting a bit self-conscious when you smile.

Whether your teeth are already exhibiting a

yellowish-tinge or suffering from extreme sensitivity

to hot or cold food and beverages, it’s never too late

for you to level up your personal dental care routine.

Can’t Smile Without You Most people with a “normal” or

average set of teeth don’t really realize the

importance of their pearly whites until they

experience problems concerning it.

Imagine this: you use your mouth to communicate with

people every minute of everyday and that means that

your teeth is also exposed every time you communicate

with other people. If you are not confident about your

teeth, you will definitely become self conscious which

would greatly affect the way you interact with others.

Now do you realize the importance of maintaining a

healthy set of teeth? If you do, then it’s high time

that you give a little more time for your personal

dental care.

Brush Regularly You don’t really have to be a

toothbrush maniac and strictly brush your teeth every

after meal. What if you eat at least 8 times a day?

Brushing your teeth 8 times a day would definitely

irritate the enamel of your teeth and may even make

your gums tender and make you more susceptible to gum

irritation and gingivitis.

Most dentists would recommend that brushing the teeth

at least 2 or 3 times a day is enough to maintain the

cleanliness of the teeth and mouth.

If you seem not to be satisfied with just merely

brushing, you can actually floss (now you can do this

after every meal, just make sure you know the right

way of flossing or you’ll still end up having gums

that bleed) or gargle some mouthwash.

Have A Tongue Cleaner If you think that brushing and

flossing alone is enough to help eliminate, manage and

control the halitosis-causing bacteria in your mouth,

think again!

The bacteria are not only found in your teeth but they

are also found in your tongue and in the “cheeks” of

your mouth. Brushing alone will not help you achieve

100% fresh breath. You will need to clean your tongue

and inner mouth cheeks as well.

You can do this by simply buying a tongue cleaner.

There are a lot of toothbrushes in the market today

that have built in tongue and cheeks cleaner. They may

be a bit more expensive than regular toothbrushes, but

they’re worth the extra money anyway.

Don’t Be Lazy There may be times when you arrive home

very late at night or you simply had a very rough and

tiring day that you just want to crawl right into bed

when you get home. You ditch brushing your teeth and

then you justify your act by telling yourself “it’s

only for tonight” and then you sleep right away.

You might think that it’s a harmless act but maybe it

would help if you would know that a person who sleeps

overnight without brushing his or her teeth gives the

bacteria in his or her mouth ample time to multiply

which gives off a “deadly” mouth odor in the morning.

Personal dental care is a person’s responsibility to

himself. It is part of daily hygiene and it must be

not neglected, just like bathing and washing hands.
