The key to good dental health is a partnership between you and your dental professionals. Each plays an important role in establishing and maintaining good dental health through out your life.
Good dental health is important to maintaining a high, pain-free quality of life. Sound teeth and gums and a healthy mouth contribute significantly to your overall well-being.
The steps to preventing dental health problems are fairly simple and straightforward, however they require a commitment to a daily routine. This routine begins with infancy and continues (with some modifications) for the rest of your life.
Brushing your teeth twice a day (minimum) is the cornerstone of good dental health. Parents should begin when children are infants and continue until the child is able to brush by his or her self, usually age 6 or so. Many children require supervision to stay on task with brushing.
General guidelines for proper brushing:
•Use toothpaste that contains fluoride (your dentist can recommend one)
•Hold toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your teeth and gums
•Gently brush with circular motion
•Brush inner surfaces of teeth with same motion
•Use toothbrush tip to brush inner surfaces of upper and lower front teeth
•Use scrubbing motion on chewing surfaces
•Brush your tongue
•Rinse your mouth well
Flossing breaks up plaque on the surfaces between your teeth and under your gums. Flossing once a day helps remove the plaque and food particles missed when brushing. It is an important step in your dental hygiene program.
General guidelines for proper flossing:
•Use about 18 inches of floss wrapped around your middle finger
•Hold the other end with your other hand
•Work the floss between your teeth in an up and down motion
•Make sure to floss the surfaces of both teeth
•Also, floss below the gum line
•Floss every tooth
For people with bridges, braces or other dental fixtures, you may need a threaded or other device to help you clean in and around those areas. Ask your dental professional for instructions.
Your dentist or dental hygienist can help you with specific instructions on brushing, flossing and other dental preventive care methods.

RED WINE - is another pretty decent benefit- the common alcohol beverage may help prevent cavities and improve your dental care.

Cavity- Fighting

There are two parts to the infection that threatens your teeth. First, there's the invasion of bacteria into your mouth, which injures your teeth, causing cavities, and your gums, resulting in gum disease, detachment of your gums from your teeth, and more. The second part of the infection is when your body responds, creating an immune response that can be as destructive to your teeth or even more so than the bacteria themselves.
Fortunately, research shows that red wine can help protect your mouth from both parts of the infection.


The first discovery about the benefits of red wine was that it helped control the inflammatory response to infection, potentially protecting your body from the overzealous immune response that can destroy your bones and result in tooth loss.
Polyphenols is red wine can help neutralize inflammatory compounds that trigger the body's extreme immune response, which means that even if it didn't help control infection, it could help limit damage from infection.


But new research confirms that wine contains antibacterial compounds that can impair the growth of plaque on your teeth.
Plaque is what is technically known as a biofilm, a combination of the bacteria cells and protective goo designed to help the bacteria survive in harsh conditions, such as the saliva of your mouth. Researchers looked at the impact of red wine and several wine-like compounds compared to chlorhexidine, a standard antibacterial rinse. Red wine, dealcoholized red wine, and wine extract solution spiked with grape seed and inactive dry yeast were all effective at reducing the growth of bacteria biofilms on simulated teeth. None of them were as effective as the chlorhexidine, but they were significantly better than the other compounds studied.
This is good news for people who routinely enjoy a glass of red wine with or after dinner, although the full extent of the benefit hasn't yet been verified. The only down side is the potential for teeth staining, but teeth whitening works well on wine stains and similar food-related stains.

How to Maintain Bright and Beautiful Teeth?!

Bright and beautiful teeth are beneficial for many reasons - but primarily because when teeth look good, it's a good indication that they are also healthy.
5 Tips on How to Maintain Bright and Beautiful Teeth:
Brush your teeth after you eat. Sometimes it is not possible to brush your teeth immediately after you eat. However, most dentists recommend that you brush your teeth at least two times a day.
Use your dental floss. Using dental floss on a daily basis helps keep your teeth and gums healthy. No matter what type of dental insurance you have, your dentist will advise you to use dental floss every single day.
Get your teeth professionally whitened. Most dentists who participate in dental insurance plans and discount dental plans offer teeth whitening services. Teeth whitening procedures are a great way to acquire bright teeth!
Try to avoid food and beverages that will stain or harm your teeth. Many dental professionals agree that certain foods (such as coffee, red wine, tea, raw lemons, etc.) can either stain your teeth or expose your teeth to enamel-harming elements.
See your dentist twice a year for a professional teeth cleaning, and make a dental appointment if you experience any tooth pain. It's important to take advantage of the preventative dental services covered by your dental insurance plan or offered at a discount by your affordable dental plan. Preventative dental care is an important aspect to maintaining bright and beautiful teeth. In between your regular dental appointments, be sure to call your dentist immediately if you experience any tooth pain or if you accidentally harm your teeth or gums in any way.
Keep your smile looking bright and beautiful with the help of a dentist.
