How To Have A Whiter And Healthy Teeth

It is very important to always keep our teeth clean and healthy. In order to do so, we need to cultivate the habit of brushing daily, not just once a day but also at least twice a day. Some people also prefer to use mouth wash. Brushing our teeth daily helps to rid our teeth and gums of dirt and bacteria, leaving us with cleaner teeth, fresher breath, and whiter teeth. 

In order to get whiter-looking teeth, it is important to first visit your dentist and get your teeth whitened, but there are also some natural remedies that help whiten one tooth. Using charcoal-based toothpaste helps in whitening one tooth, and it helps in protecting one's gums and getting rid of the yellowish stains on the teeth.

Also, if you have baking soda at home, just get a bit of it and apply it to your teeth. Baking soda is also a great source of tooth whitening due to the chemicals it contains. Also, make sure to use fluoride-based toothpaste when brushing your teeth and ensure your toothpaste is endorsed by NAFDAC, FDI, and the Nigeria Dental Association. 

A good toothpaste should contain some necessary ingredients like sodium fluoride, zinc, and sulfate. Brushing your teeth regularly and daily helps to remove food particles that may be stored in your teeth or gums, which can decay, cause tooth gum problems, and cavities. So in order to prevent all this, always endeavor to brush daily and at least twice a day.

Going for a regular dental checkup is also important to quit smoking and avoid foods and sodas that stain the teeth. Make sure to use whitening toothpaste or charcoal-based toothpaste. Always brush your tongue when washing and brushing your teeth. Most people ignore washing their tongue and lips when brushing or say it is not necessary, forgetting that the tongue is part of their mouth and they need to keep it clean and germ-free at all times.
