 healthy teeth and oral hygeineIf you are struggling with bad oral hygiene now, then it is not too late to do something about it. Cavities, stained teeth, sensitive teeth, bleeding gums, bad breath, and dry mouth are common symptoms of bad dental hygiene. Poor dental hygiene is a risk factor for your mouth and your overall well-being. To reverse poor dental hygiene, you need to stay on top of it. Brushing and flossing your teeth, avoiding acidic foods, and visiting your dentist will help you restore dental hygiene.

Can Dentists Help Restore Dental Hygiene?

Your efforts to restore dental hygiene might not be adequate. Regularly brushing teeth, flossing, and a teeth-friendly diet will help you prevent further teeth and gum damage. However, some damage has already occurred to your teeth. A dentist will help you with plaque removal, tooth filling or extraction, implants, and other treatment options to help you recover from bad dental hygiene. These treatment options take away pain and discomfort and restore your confidence. The dentist will then conduct regular assessments and give expert advice on how to enhance oral hygiene. Eventually, you will restore your dental hygiene.

Improving Dental Hygiene at Home

Restoring dental hygiene is not a walk in the park. You will need to up your dental hygiene game and do more than you currently do. Some hints for improving dental hygiene include:

Brushing Teeth Regularly

You need to brush your teeth at least twice a day. If you have been brushing twice, then you can make it after every meal. You will realize that after meals, many food particles remain behind, and these are a major cause of trouble. If you cannot brush after every meal, then rinse your mouth after eating. Mouthwash is the ideal rinsing agent since it contains anti-bacterial properties.

Floss Your Teeth

Flossing your teeth removes food particles from the spaces between your teeth where ordinary toothbrushes do not reach. The removal of food particles from these spaces controls bacteria growth and the build-up of tartar. After flossing, then you should rinse with mouthwash.

Closing Remarks

With dedication, recovery from bad dental hygiene is possible. Consult your dentist for assessment and advice on how to recover from bad dental hygiene.
