You don’t need to brush all your teeth… only the ones you want to keep.
Read our free e-book I hate brushing my teeth! for a gentle introduction to this topic.
What is a human tooth? The place to go is Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org, the article “Human tooth”): “Human teeth are small, calcified, hard, whitish structures found in the mouth […] Humans […] develop two sets of teeth”.
- Brush your teeth after every meal, at least two times a day.
- Visit the dentist at least twice a year.
- Avoid alcohol, tobacco, snacks, sugary foods, and fizzy drinks at all cost. Besides, “Eating a healthy, balanced diet that is high in fruit, vegetables and fibre and low in saturated fat, sugar and salt, alongside being more active, will help you to maintain a healthy weight and lower your risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers,” Dr Alison Tedstone, Chief Nutritionist at PHE.
- Don’t pierce your lips or any part of your mouth. Many say that piercings is a way to express yourself as an individual, to be cool, attractive, etc., but it can be dangerous. Your mouth is filled with bacteria, and if the bacteria get into your piercing, you can end up with infection and swelling.
