People should pay heed to some advice about their oral health.
Individuals have been advised on a number of ways to improve their oral health.
However, over-brushing can damage the gums leading to a greater risk of gingivitis and because of this, the use of a soft-bristled toothbrush is advised.
Furthermore, the post advised cutting back on sugary drinks and giving up smoking, as the harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke can “cause havoc for your mouth”.
Elsewhere, a blog post on Silicon India from an unnamed source recently advised that dental problems can be avoided if a person maintains a varied diet high in vitamins and minerals.
Further golden rules to abide by include taking care to clean all areas of the teeth and gums and using a good quality toothpaste and toothbrush when brushing daily.
