If sitting in dentist's chair makes you anxious and fearful, "try it" with a music player and headphones to calm down.

Checking condition of teeth and oral cavity is necessary. So what preventive measures can we take to keep our teeth and gums healthy?
Thread or brush first?
Some experts believe that sequence of brushing and flossing doesn't matter. Others, however, note that flossing makes brushing more effective by removing food debris between teeth in first place. If flossing is a concern for you, it may be best to go to a pharmacy to find a professional to use it. When it's time to brush your teeth, use brush at a 45-degree angle to gum line and brush gently by moving brush back and forth. Then rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash to remove any remaining plaque.
Press lightly: pick your teeth with a toothpick
If you don't have dental floss, a toothpick will help remove food stuck between your teeth, but be careful. It's very easy to push too hard and hurt your gums, or worse, break a toothpick below gum line. Flossing removes food between teeth better than a toothpick and fights plaque by removing bacteria that build up on toothpick. Frequent use of a toothpick to remove food stuck in one place may indicate a more serious problem, large gaps, etc. that require attention of a dentist.
Change your toothbrush on time
Toothbrush bristles wear out over time, flatten and wear out. To maintain a radiant smile, change your manual toothbrush every three to four months, for electric toothbrushes, follow manufacturer's recommendations. If you feel discomfort or inappropriate use, stop using an electric toothbrush in time to avoid damaging your teeth. and gums affecting oral health.
Brush your teeth with cheese!
The casein and whey proteins contained in cheese help to preserve best appearance of tooth enamel by reducing demineralization of tooth enamel. At same time: cheese also contains calcium, which is important for teeth. Remember to include vitamin D in your diet. It helps your body absorb calcium, which is also a very important step in maintaining healthy teeth. Some foods rich in vitamin D include milk, egg yolks, and fish.
Brush your teeth with baking soda!
If your fondness for coffee, red wine, or other tooth-staining foods and drinks is making your white pearl teeth look "dull," try brushing your teeth with baking soda twice a month, as if you were using toothpaste, and then rinse to help "whiten your smile". If regular baking soda irritates your teeth or gums, you can try a toothpaste that contains it, or skip it entirely.
Some products whiten your teeth!
It has been suggested that strawberries may have natural teeth whitening properties, but this has yet to be proven. It is best to brush your teeth thoroughly after eating foods such as blueberries, coffee, and cigarettes. To reduce tooth discoloration, brush your teeth after meals and then chew on an apple, pear, carrot, or celery. All of these cause saliva to be released when bathing teeth, which helps keep teeth bright.
Acid reflux, reflux esophagitis: timely treatment and control!
If you have acid reflux, you need to get it under control to keep your teeth and mouth healthy. Common foods and drinks that cause reflux include chocolate, alcohol, caffeinated drinks such as sodas, coffee and tea, garlic and onions, dairy products, tomatoes, citrus fruits, mint, spicy, fatty or fried foods.
Beware of tongue cleaning!
Remove bad breath every time you brush your teeth and also take a moment to brush or brush your tongue. The tongue is a haven for bad breath-causing bacteria, so be sure to brush it daily or use a tongue scraper to reduce odor-causing compounds.
Some medicines can cause dry mouth!
Your mouth needs saliva to stay healthy, but hundreds of medications such as antidepressants, high blood pressure medications, and antihistamines can dry out your saliva. Medications are most common cause of dry mouth. To keep your mouth moist, increase your fluid intake, remember to prudently avoid side effects of medications under guidance of a doctor, and change type of medication in time if possible.
