5 good habits for your oral health

Perhaps so far this year you have already put into practice some of the resolutions you promised yourself you would keep. Playing sports? Eating healthier? Visit your doctor? From Oliver & Alcazar we give you some tips to improve your oral health with these simple habits. Read on!

1. Eat more fruits and vegetables

We are tired of hearing this advice, but actually following a diet rich in vegetables and antioxidants is more than proven to be beneficial for our health and even our mood.

So avoid junk food as much as possible and opt for healthy snacking between meals. A poor diet, in addition to affecting the immune system in general, can increase susceptibility to oral conditions, such as gum (periodontal) disease.

2. Quit smoking

The oral and dental problems caused by tobacco consumption are innumerable. You only need to take a look at the images illustrating the packs to get an idea of what this habit can do to your oral health and image (to speak of just one of the many areas of health that are affected).

Cavities, receding gums and gum disease, loss of teeth, cancer… The good news is that by abandoning this vice, the bad effects are gradually reversed.

3. Visit your dentist regularly.

With regular visits to your dentist (at least once a year), conditions can be detected at an early stage that can become serious with the cost that can be derived from them and, in any case, oral health is kept in good condition with these periodic check-ups and dental cleanings when necessary.

4. Brush your teeth at least twice a day.

Brushing teeth twice a day avoids many problems related to cavities and gum disease. On the other hand, according to the Academy of General Dentistry, flossing can remove plaque between the teeth and under the gum.

5. Lose your fear of the dentist and improve your personal image.

Whether it is due to poor positioning of the teeth, loss of enamel, discoloration or other defects that may affect the harmony of the mouth as a whole, any change is good if it serves to improve your appearance.
