Getting Rid of Gum Disease

Several years ago, I scheduled an appointment with my husband’s dentist. During my visit, I was shocked to learn I was suffering from gum disease. I discovered my gum disorder was caused from not seeing a dentist in more than five years or flossing my teeth daily. To treat my gum disease, the dentist prescribed a medicated mouthwash for me to use twice each day. I also had to undergo multiple, professional cleanings at the dentist’s office. I began flossing every day too. In a few, short months, my gum disease was completely cured. On this blog, I hope you will discover smart, simple tips to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for life. Enjoy!

3 Dental Tips For Keeping Your Teeth White After Whitening Them

Getting your teeth whitened by your dentist can be a great thing. Your teeth are likely going to be several shades whiter and you are going to feel confident when you smile and talk to others. Because you feel so great with your teeth whitened, you are probably going to want them to stay white for as long as possible. Thankfully, there are certain things that you can do to keep your teeth looking great for an extended period of time. This article is going to discuss 3 dental tips for keeping your teeth white after whitening them.

Avoid Dark Beverages

There are certain foods and drinks that you should avoid when it comes to staining your teeth. When it comes to dark beverages, such as coffee, soda, and any other drink that has a dark color in it, you are going to want to avoid these. The dark color of the drinks can stain your teeth and cause them to take on a yellow coloring much more quickly. If you find that have to have dark beverages, then you are going to want to drink them through a straw so that the drink doesn't come in contact with the fronts of your teeth.

Eat Hard Fruits And Vegetables

Another helpful tip is to eat plenty of hard fruits and vegetables in raw form. When you eat hard fruits, such as an apple, you are going to be able to remove some of the surface stains from your teeth as you bite into and chew the apple. Also, the acid from apples and other fruits will help to create saliva in your mouth that help to fight stains as well. Hard vegetables, such as carrots and broccoli, will do a good job of removing food particles from off of your teeth as you bite and chew them and will essentially "brush" them clean as you eat them.

Brush, Brush, Brush

Another tip for keeping your teeth white is to simply brush them regularly. The better you are at removing build up from your teeth, the more likely this build is to come right off without creating an stains. Using a whitening toothpaste or mouthwash can also help to keep your teeth white. However, make sure that you choose a brand that has been approved by your dentist. This can help you avoid purchasing brands that may potentially cause more harm than good to your teeth.
