PowerPoint Presentation: Dentist Phoenix- Tips to healthy teeth It is very important to take good care of teeth which if ignored can cause lot of pain and illness. It is strongly recommended to brush at least twice a day. The brush should have a small head for better access to back teeth and soft bristles to kinder on gums. Dentist Phoenix recommend a regular dental check to avoid any major dental problems. Soft drinks and fruit juices should be limited as aerated drinks soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel causing cavities. Rinsing after meals with an antibacterial rinse helps in preventing decay and gum problems. Tongue cleaning is very important as it reduces bad breath and improves oral hygiene status as a large number of bacteria reside in the rough surface of the tongue. Flossing cleans and removes calculus and other food materials which cannot be removed by the tooth brush. Dentist Phoenix recommend to avoid excessive sugar intake as it is good for dental and overall health of a person. Sugar and carbs can feed bacteria which cause tooth decay. Crunchy fruits and vegetables contain plenty of water which helps to dilute the effects of sugar and starches. Dairy products are rich sources of calcium and potassium which are the two most important minerals for healthy teeth. Some dentist recommend to finish the meal with a crunchy fruit like apple and glass of water or a sugarless gum that stimulates saliva flow to help dislodge food particles. A regular dental checkup would incur minimum expenditure and save maximum expenditure in future.
