-Brush your teeth twice a day (after every meal, even!)


-Keep the amount of sugar that you eat lower. Sugar tends to get in weird spots in your teeth and...then gross will happen

-Visit the dentist every now and then

  • Brush twice a day with a soft-bristled brush.
  • Toothpaste with flouride is effective.
  • Correct brushing technique is to place the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle toward your gum line and gently move the bristles back and forth in short strokes. Make sure to brush the outer, inner and biting surfaces of all your teeth.
  • Brush your tongue as well, or use a tongue cleaner.
  • Use a toothbrush that fits comfortably in your mouth.
  • Use a toothpaste containing active ingredients that can help protect you from specific problems, such as cavities, gum disease, bad breath, tartar buildup, stains or sensitivity.
  • Floss once a day as part of a daily routine.
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit sugary snacks and beverages.
  • Consuming whole grains, low-sugar breads and cereals, fresh fruits and vegetables and high-quality protein such as that contained in lean meats, eggs, fish, cheese and dry beans are the best food choices for a healthy mouth.
  • According to the American Dental Association, fruits and vegetables should take up half of your plate, with the other half divided between whole grains, low-fat dairy products and lean protein foods.
  • You should go to your dental maintenance visits twice per year, but only your dental health professional can tell you how often you should have your checkup and professional cleaning based on your needs.
  • Wear a mouth guard if you play a sport.

To maintain
a good oral health, you really need to brush twice a day. We generally avoid
flossing, but it is important to floss if not daily, at least once in two days
because floss can only clean areas where your brush cannot reach. Do try to swish
with cold water every time you eat something sweet.

brushing teeth at least 2 or 3 time par day, and visiting the dentist 1 or 2 time per year too in order to know if our teeth have any problem or not, as if yes, then the dentist can cure it in advance.

I'll add interdental brushes to the mix and avoid brushing directly after eating while the acidic levels in the mouth are higher and may damage the enamel, give it 20 minutes and you should be good to go :)
