Brush twice a day
70% of dental problems can be solved, if we brush our teeth thoroughly. Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day for a minimum of 2-4minutes, to get rid of plaque.

Use good products

To get rid of all the food particles, invest in a good toothbrush. Choose a scientifically designed toothbrush, which will help you reach all corners in your mouth. Also, choose a good fluoride based toothpaste.

Rinse well
If you are a regular snacker, then Dr Ajay suggests that you rinse your mouth thoroughly after every snack. You can even gargle with a good mouthwash, if you want to keep tooth decay away.

Visit a dentist
To maintain good oral hygiene, visit your dentist at least once a year. Besides, this will help you maintain good strong healthy teeth.

No smoking
Smoking not only harms our body, but also deteriorates our teeth. The nicotine present in cigarettes causes tooth decay and bad breathe. So, avoid smoking and chewing tobacco.

Change your toothbrush
If you have been using your toothbrush for a year, then replace it with a new one as soon as possible. As soon as you notice the bristles of your toothbrush getting frayed, it is time to replace your toothbrush.

Eat a healthy diet
Just practicing good dental habits is not good enough. For strong teeth, you need to eat a diet full of nutrients. Include loads of vitamin B food in your diet to make your teeth strong and healthy.

Include dairy in your diet for strong teeth

Dairy products decrease gum diseases and help develop and maintain the whiteness of our teeth. Along with protecting and strengthening the enamel, hard cheese like cheddar, is very effective for cleaning and whitening the teeth.

Avoid aerated drinks
Stay away from colas and other aerated drinks, because they cause stains on our teeth. If you wish to drink colas, try using a straw to minimise the stains on your teeth.

Flossing helps to maintain hygiene and remove plaque from teeth. So, floss your teeth at least twice a week.
