Dental Cleaning and Care For Healthy Teeth

One of the best ways to encourage good habits is to make teeth cleaning fun. Elmo and friends from Sesame St are here to make teeth cleaning fun with Elmo’s Brushy Brush your teeth song and Ready Set Brush pop up book.

Dental Care Hacks.
Use Vitamin C
Take vitamin C supplements before and after a scheduled visit to the dentist. A professional teeth cleaning session will release large amounts of bacteria into the blood stream putting strain on your immune system. Vitamin C aids the body’s natural defenses.
Use a Straw
Fizzy soda drinks are bad for teeth but sipping them with a straw will reduce the contact with the teeth and limit damage.
Chewing gum can rid the mouth of up to 100 million harmful bacteria in just 10 minutes. The gum’s adhesive properties trap bacteria and reduce bio film on the teeth.
Harmful bacterial thrive in acidic conditions and feed off of sugar and carbs. Eating Xylitol sweets, gum and sugars starve bacteria of their vital fuel and eventually weaken and kill them completely.
Clean Your Tongue
The tongue needs to be cleaned just as much as the teeth. The tongue surface is perfect for collecting nasty germs and trapping random food particles. Cleaning your tongue will freshen up your breath and improve your sense of taste.
The bristles of a toothbrush are perfect for catching dirt and germs. Always disinfect your brush before using it by dipping it in Listerine and then rinsing under the tap.
