Have you set new health and fitness goals for 2021? Don’t forget about your dental health! 

Here are a few oral care practices you need to get behind this year.

Don’t Go To Bed without Brushing Your Teeth

If you still haven’t gotten into the habit of brushing our teeth at least twice a day, now’s the time to start.

Most of us happily (and quite rigorously) brush your teeth in the morning, but many individuals neglect to do the same at night. This can lead to dental problems such as cavities, plaque, and bad breath.

This year, make it a point to brush your teeth twice a day—once in the morning and once before you go to bed at night.

Eat Teeth-Friendly Foods

What are teeth-friendly foods? Foods that help keep your teeth healthy, strong, and white.

Fibrous foods are good for your teeth. They contribute to keeping the gums clean and stimulate saliva flow. This helps lower the amount of plaque that accumulates in your mouth after you’ve eaten and neutralizes acids. 

On the other hand, foods rich in sugar should be avoided. Studies have continually pointed out the adverse effects of sugary and processed foods on dental health, and have shown them to be a cause of cavities. 

It’s best to reduce your daily intake of sugar to prevent disastrous dental outcomes and boost your oral health. You should also cut down on your intake of caffeinated beverages to avoid your teeth getting stained by them.

Switch to a Soft Bristle Brush

If you think using a toothbrush with hard bristles will allow you to brush your pearly whites better, think again. Using a “hard” toothbrush can actually be quite detrimental to your oral health.

Because the bristles are abrasive, they can damage the teeth surface and cause gums to recede over time. Therefore, even if you feel that you’re cleaning your teeth more thoroughly, you’re doing more harm than good.

The solution? A soft-bristled toothbrush like the Naked Bamboo Toothbrush available at our store. 

The soft nylon bristles allow for gentle cleansing and effectively remove debris from even the hard-to-reach spots. 

Try it; your teeth will thank us!

Use Toothpaste Tablets with Fluoride 

Fluoride has long been associated with optimal dental health. Dentists and medical experts recommend fluoride-based toothpaste to prevent tooth decay. However, that’s not the only way you can incorporate fluoride in your daily routine to strengthen your teeth.

This year, give our toothpaste tablets a shot. These organic toothpaste tablets are free from toxic or harmful ingredients often found in toothpaste gels. They’re a great alternative to the traditional toothpaste tube and are eco-friendly.

Instead of brushing your teeth with toothpaste, you can simply pop one fluoride toothpaste tablet in your mouth, chew it until it’s smooth, and then brush with a wet toothbrush. Once you’re satisfied with the brushing, just spit it out and you’re good to go.

Our animal cruelty-free and dentist-approved toothpaste tablets are a game-changer in the dental industry. We also offer fluoride-free toothpaste tablets.
