Read on to learn great tips on how to minimize the damage and protect your teeth as you age.

Great Tips For Creating the Dental Fountain of Youth

1.  Good Dental Hygiene – Having the great dental hygiene is the best way to make sure that your teeth stay healthy.

a. Brush starting from a different corner of your mouth every day to ensure that your teeth are getting evenly brushed.
b. Flossing can make a huge difference in preventing cavities in between your teeth. Small cavities in between teeth are difficult to treat and can lead to gingivitis or other dental issues.
c. Clean your tongue. Cleaning your tongue is just as important as cleaning your teeth. Did you know that almost 50 percent of the bacteria in your mouth is on your tongue? If you don’t worry about cleaning your tongue, that bacteria will transfer to your teeth even after you’ve brushed and could be the cause of lingering halitosis.

2.  Eat Healthy Foods – This means staying away from sugary, sticky, staining foods and adding a lot of vitamin D and calcium to your diet. Lean proteins are also great along with whole grains to keep your diet balanced.

3.   Limit Home Whitening Treatments. Over-whitening your teeth can cause them to become weaker and more sensitive over time. If you do get your teeth bleached, make sure it’s by a professional instead of using multiple whitening tools at home. At-home whiteners are abrasive and can cause your teeth to become discolored and gray.

4.   Visit the Dentist Frequently. Frequent visits ensure that your dentist can spot problems before they become serious. Proactive preventative treatment is the best way to protect your teeth over time.

5.  Drink Water . Add a few extra cups of water to your daily routine. Water not only helps keep the inside of your mouth clean, it also helps rid your body of waste and toxic buildup. Extra water can also help you lose weight and lower your risk of diseases like diabetes.
