Your dentist, Dr. Steven Rattner, wants you to have strong and healthy teeth. This is because top-notch teeth are essential for a top-notch smile and oral health. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to achieve the strong and healthy teeth you need. Your dentist is happy to share some of those tricks with you today. Those tricks are:
-Keep up on oral hygiene: it’s very important to brush, floss, rinse and attend your checkups regularly. This is because they clean your teeth and help you prevent dental issues, like tooth decay and enamel erosion. So, make sure to brush twice a day, floss and rinse daily and attend your checkups every six months.
-Use fluoride: fluoride is a beneficial mineral that can strengthen your tooth enamel. In fact, it dives into the tooth enamel and hardens it, making it a tough shell that fights bacteria and acid regularly. It’s best to expose your teeth to fluoride by using fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash, drinking fluoridated water and receiving a professional fluoride treatment if your dentist recommends it.
-Eat tooth-healthy foods: fortunately, there are many foods that have the vitamins and minerals your teeth need to survive. Those foods include fruits, vegetables, dairy products and protein products. It’s best to eat these foods regularly and avoid sugary and acidic foods.
