Tips For Healthy Teeth

Key to having a great smile is taking care of your teeth and general health.

You can achieve a great smile by brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing, and going to your regular check-ups. But did you know a unhealthy diet, smoking and drinking have the same effect on your dental health as it does on your general health?

A healthy diet:
Did you know, what you eat and drink can cause tooth decay? This is why a healthy diet is important to your teeth. A healthy diet contains fruits and veggies, small amount of starchy foods, protein and some dairy foods.

Do you drink and eat sugary things all day long? This can lead to tooth decay. Try and limit the amount of sugar you eat and drink per day to help prevent tooth decay.

Alcohol erodes the enamel on your teeth which can lead to tooth decay. Heavy drinking can also lead to mouth cancer.

Smoking turns your teeth yellow, causes bad breath, increases your risk of gum disease, breathing problems and mouth cancer. This is preventing you from a healthy smile! Giving up smoking will make you feel and look better.

Here are some tips to achieve a healthy smile!
