My smile has been my ticket to the world. Smiling releases the same feel-good hormones you get jogging. Caring for your lips and gums is important. If you really wish to contribute anything worthy to the world, offer it with your smile. I laugh at everything you say. Why? Because I have fine teeth and good oral hygiene.
 

 Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping one's mouth clean and free of disease in a healthy condition by regular brushing and cleaning the teeth. It is important that oral hygiene is carried out by a regular program of brushing and flossing the teeth with periodic examinations by the dentist. The best way to prevent cavities and periodontal disease is by good tooth brushing and flossing techniques performed regularly.

 Dental hygiene steps you can take to promote great oral hygiene.

1. Proper Brushing

It is one of the easiest steps to help your teeth keep clean. When brushing your teeth, position the bristles at an angle of 45 degrees near the gum line. Brush the outer surfaces of the teeth using a back-and-forth, up-and-down motion, making sure to be done gently in order to avoid bleeding. To clean the inside surfaces of the teeth and gums place the bristles at a 45-degree angle again and repeat the back-and-forth, up-and-down motion. Lastly, brush the surfaces of your tongue and the roof of your mouth to remove bacteria, which might cause bad breath. Try to brush at least twice a day to prevent acid buildup from the breakdown of food by bacteria. 

2. Flossing

 After brushing a lot of times we forget to do flossing. Through flossing, it removes food particles and other harmful substances from tight spaces between your teeth that brushing regularly cannot. Flossing allows you to reach deep between your teeth where the toothbrush bristles cannot reach or even mouthwash cannot wash away.

3. Say No To Tobacco

This will be a big favor to your teeth. For example, if you smoke a cigarette, you may use candies, tea or coffee to mask the smoky breath and odor. This doubles the amount of damage and causes Oral cancer, Gum disease, poor healing etc. 

5. Consume Calcium and other Vitamins; good for your body

 Calcium is very much essential for your teeth and bone. It is better to drink milk, fortified orange juice and to eat yogurt, broccoli, cheese, and other dairy products which contain calcium and vitamins. Vitamin B complex is also essential for the protection of gums and teeth from cracking and bleeding. Copper, zinc, iodine, iron and potassium are also required for maintaining healthy dental hygiene.

 6. Use Mouthwash alongside brushing and flossing

Mouthwash is not particularly necessary and not all mouthwashes are useful. Mouthwashes containing Listerine our chlorine dioxide are very helpful because they help to kill and maintain the bacteria in your mouth. It can help maintain good breath as well as help maintain strong teeth.

7.Visit Your Dentist

Beside all these you should visit your dentist at least twice a year to have a full hygiene treatment.
