Easiest Tips For Good Oral Health


A lot of people don’t understand how their general health can be impacted by their oral health. The mouth is the passageway for germs to come in and have bacteria grow. Poor oral health may lead to cardiovascular disease and endocarditis which is an infection of the inner lining of your heart’s chambers and valves. Below are tips on how to take care of and improve your oral health. 


Replace Your Toothbrush 

It is recommended to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months because after 3 months the toothbrush bristles aren’t as successful at removing plaque. What’s terrifying is that germs hide in between the bristles on your toothbrush. 


Brush and Floss

This is an obvious tip but people still don’t do it. Doctors recommend brushing your teeth for two minutes. I find it easiest to brush my teeth evenly for two minutes by using an electric toothbrush that has a timer to let me know when to move to a new region of my mouth and when two minutes are up. I can’t be a hypocrite if my dentist is reading this… I am one of those people that needs to be better about flossing. :) I do understand that flossing is how you get the food out between your teeth that your toothbrush can’t reach. 


Eat A Balanced Diet

Eating a balanced diet provides you with nutrients your body needs to be healthy. A balanced diet does not include added sugars that lead to cavities. 


Schedule Appointments

Staying on top of scheduling your appointments is how you can be a little bit more in control of your health and know what’s going on inside of you. Appointments are recommended every six months. 


Taking care of your oral health early on will help you later in life. It’s one of those things that creeps up on you and makes you wish you had taken better care when you were younger. Just think… Do you really want to have missing teeth or dentures earlier than expected in your life?
