Having nice, strong teeth not only looks good but is essential if you want to have good overall health. Keeping your teeth clean and strong is actually pretty easy. A lot of dental issues are easily preventable.

If you feel that your teeth have been lacking that boost in keeping as clean and as fresh as possible - today’s your lucky day. Here are some of the best and easiest ways to improve the quality of your teeth.

Brushing Twice Daily

Since you were a child, your parents have probably drummed into your head how important it is that you brush your teeth twice a day. For most of us, this means once in the morning and once at night. Surprisingly, the dentists of Enhanced Dental Studios are still having to remind people that brushing twice a day is necessary.

Brushing your teeth twice a day is significantly better than once a day, especially brushing before bed. That is because you do not want to have leftover food sitting in your mouth and on your teeth four hours overnight as you are asleep.

Use A Soft Toothbrush

If you happen to prefer toothbrushes that have bristles that are firmer and stiff rather than soft and lush, then you may be in for a shock. Hard bristled toothbrushes can actually damage the enamel on your teeth, which is obviously going to affect the protection of your pearly whites.

Lifestyle Smiles recommended switching to a soft toothbrush. This is especially if you have noticed that your teeth are sensitive to cold drinks and ice cream.

Chew on Sugar-Free Gum

As a lot of chewing gum companies have advertised, chewing on some gum after eating is good for keeping your teeth clean and in good condition. Remember though, always go for some gum that is sugar-free, so there is less of a worry regarding the troubles of sugar.

Chewing gum helps “clean” out a lot of the food that has managed to get stuck between your teeth. It can prevent tooth decay, stop bad breath and even strengthen enamel.

Staying Hydrated

Many are unaware of the benefits of drinking water in regards to benefiting dental health. Drinking water is good for reducing the amount of acid in the mouth, which is what causes poor dental health such as cavities. Water also helps prevent having a dry mouth, which helps stop staining as well as decay and disease in your gums.


Although a huge amount of us avoid doing so, flossing has proven time and time again as being something that is immensely helpful to your dental health. Flossing reaches parts between your teeth that a regular toothbrush just simply cannot, and dentists are consistently emphasising how important flossing is. Some claim that flossing is just as important as brushing your teeth.

When you first begin flossing, expect there to be a little bit of discomfort and even bleeding of the gums. This is fairly common and may go away as you keep flossing and getting used to it.

Using Flouride Toothpaste

Fluoride is an important chemical compound that is helpful in the world of dental hygiene. Some countries even add fluoride to their water, as studies have shown that fluoride is effective at helping prevent tooth decay.


So there you have it. To keep everything short and sweet, here’s a little list of what we went over to improve the quality of your teeth:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day
  • Using a soft toothbrush instead of a firm one
  • Chew on sugar-free gum
