How to Keep Your Teeth Strong and Healthy

Posted by CITY FAMILY DENTAL on Nov 17 2021, 06:05 AM

Having healthy teeth allows us to perform a multitude of tasks like chewing, grinding, and tearing food. They are also crucial for talking and pronouncing different sounds. So, it is only fitting to give your teeth the best care possible. Your teeth provide a great deal of support for your body, so it is very important to maintain them.

Teeth Without Proper Oral Maintenance

The nerve infection that leads to tooth decay can disrupt the functioning of the tooth and cause pain. The tooth can become abscessed if the infection is not treated, requiring root canal treatment or even tooth extraction. 

Gum disease can lead to loose teeth and teeth being lost. If you leave your gums and teeth untreated, you may lose bone around the teeth through a condition called periodontitis. Bridges, dentures, or implants may be necessary to restore the biting ability. 

You can keep gum disease under control with regular cleaning sessions and checkups, which can prevent further problems from developing. We also offer expert advice on how to take care of your teeth and gums: 


To prevent gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath, make sure to clean the spaces between your teeth with floss or interdental brushes at least once a day. Ensure the technique you use is effective by taking your time.


  • Mornings and nights, brush your teeth for a minimum of two minutes.
  • To ensure effective cleaning of your teeth and gums, use a toothbrush with a soft bristle and a small head.
  • You can strengthen your tooth enamel by using toothpaste containing fluoride.
  • The act of brushing your tongue can help eliminate oral bacteria and improve breath quality.
  • Your toothbrush should be changed every three to four months, sooner if they begin fraying.

Healthy Eating and Proper Nutrition

  • The fluoride in tap water helps prevent tooth decay, so go for tap water over bottled water.
  • Keeping your teeth healthy requires avoiding acidic foods or drinks like soft drinks.
  • To avoid acid attacks on your teeth when you eat, limit your snacking between meals.
  • You can combat acid attacks by chewing sugar-free gum after meals. This produces saliva that can neutralize the acid.
