Take Care of Your Teeth and Gums
Since you’re missing your deep cleaning, it’s important that you keep up with a quality oral healthcare routine at home. It can be difficult to keep up with small things like brushing and flossing, however, you have to keep up your oral health if you want to avoid tooth decay and gum disease. You can also brush your teeth after every meal, as that is beneficial for getting food particles out from between your teeth as soon as possible.
Maintain a Healthy Diet
To keep your teeth and gums healthy, try to avoid consuming large amounts of sugar. The bacteria that live in your mouth feed on sugar and give off an acidic byproduct that eats through the enamel on your teeth. This is what causes tooth decay. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking water. If you drink tap water, there’s a high chance it’s fortified with fluoride. Fluoride can help make your tooth enamel stronger. As an added bonus, water helps to rinse away excess sugars and food particles away from your smile. Fruits and vegetables are not only healthy but are also helpful in scraping plaque off of teeth, especially if they are crunchy.
