1. Choose the right toothbrush and brush properly
Brushing with a hard-bristled toothbrush can cause excessive pressure on the teeth, leading to a failure of enamel protection (leading to tooth sensitivity and tooth decay) and gum degradation. Conversely, using a soft toothbrush can be very protective of tooth enamel. It is recommended that teeth are cleaned daily by brushing in a circular motion for an optimum of two minutes. Therefore, when buying a toothbrush, always look before you buy.

2. Use the right toothpaste
There is a wide range of toothpastes on the market nowadays, from calcium containing toothpaste to fluoride containing toothpaste. But in fact, the most important thing to protect your teeth is fluoride. Those so-called toothpastes containing other nutrients are not only detrimental to dental health, but improper use can also erode tooth enamel and lead to gum degradation.

3. Floss regularly to clean your teeth
Bacteria left in the crevices of your teeth can easily form plaque after a long period of accumulation. These are the culprits of tooth decay and periodontal disease. Flossing is recommended at least once a day to help remove plaque hidden in the teeth. Girls can keep a piece of floss or other toiletries in their make-up bag to make it easy to clean and take care of their dental health at all times.

4. Avoid food staining
The enamel in the teeth is like a sponge and easily absorbs the pigments carried by various foods, such as coffee, cola and red wine. If you don't clean your teeth in time after eating, the pigments will easily build up and stick to the surface of your teeth after a while, making them look dull and yellow.

5. Healthy eating
In everyday life, whenever you eat in, especially those foods that contain sugar and starch, the bacteria in your mouth will convert them into organic acids to digest the food. It is important to note that these organic acids can also eat away at your teeth and cause cavities. It is advisable to eat some fruit or chew sugar-free gum after meals to help remove the bacteria from your mouth and avoid oral diseases.

6. Eat less hard food
Nowadays, many people like to eat hard food, such as ice, hard candy and walnuts, because they taste good and have a chewy texture. In fact, eating hard food in moderation is good for dental health. By constantly chewing, you can achieve a tooth-healthy effect, but if you overdo it, it can easily cause broken gums and bring damage to your teeth.

7. Pay attention to oral hygiene
Bleeding gums and bad breath are symptoms of gum disease. To avoid the inconvenience of bad breath, you can drink more water, keep your mouth moist often (water and saliva help inhibit the growth of bacteria) and use a spatula to remove bacteria from your tongue frequently. As for the symptoms of bleeding gums, you can adopt a proper brushing and flossing method to clean tartar. If the situation does not improve after a period of time, you should seek medical attention.

8. Have your teeth cleaned regularly
If you want to have good and healthy teeth, it is recommended that you visit a dental clinic at least twice a year to have your teeth thoroughly cleaned. Some people may think, wouldn't it be just as easy to clean at home? This thinking is extremely wrong. Daily cleaning is not unfeasible, but after all, tools are limited and it is impossible to clean your gums thoroughly.
