We’ve talked about many beauty tips and tricks here on Model on a Mission Magazine. In a previous article, we covered the bad habits that are ruining your look. Keeping your skin and your hair healthy and beautiful is important, but there is one other part of the equation that you must not neglect: your teeth.
Keeping your teeth healthy and beautiful is not only important but also necessary. You can avoid many teeth-related problems and keep your teeth looking incredible with simple routines; we are going to take a look at those tips and tricks in this article.
Watch What You Eat
The food items you consume and the habits you maintain often have big impacts on the health and beauty of your teeth. If you drink a lot of red wine, for instance, keeping your teeth white and sparkly is a lot more difficult to do.
Coffee and cigarettes also have the same effect on your teeth. They make your teeth appear yellow. They are also known to speed up plaque build-up. When not treated properly, it doesn’t take long for these habits – and the food you consume – to ruin your teeth.
Use a Fresh Toothbrush
Ideally, you want to replace your toothbrush every two months or so. Make sure you store the toothbrush properly so that you don’t end up using one with a lot of bacteria. Use a moderate amount of toothpaste whenever you brush your teeth as well.
The same tips apply when you use an electric toothbrush. Make sure you replace the head of the toothbrush every two months or sooner to avoid bacterial build-up.
Apple Cider Vinegar to the Rescue
Apple cider vinegar is one of the best natural remedies when it comes to keeping your teeth – and the mouth in general – healthy. What you want to do is gargle using a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in the morning, and then brush your teeth as usual.
The apple cider vinegar is effective in killing bacteria, removing stains, and whitening your teeth at the same time. The fact that it is a natural remedy makes it even better to use every day.
Know How to Deal with Teeth Emergencies
Even with the best care, you may still run into teeth problems. The first few things you do when dealing with a toothache or a chipped tooth is important because they will determine if you will have to deal with permanent damage or future problems.
When you chip a tooth, use pain relief to treat the pain and treating the swelling using an ice pack. Healthrow.net has detailed tips and tricks on how to follow up the early treatments and fix a chipped tooth properly.
Last but not least, learn to floss and add it to your morning and evening routines. Flossing often is also recommended as long as you do it properly. Keep a tub of dental floss with you and you won’t have to worry about keeping your teeth clean before meetings or after an early dinner.
