Embarrassed Of Your Teeth? Read These Tips To Obtain Shiny, Whit

<br/>Going to see your dentist might make you nervous, or even flat out scared. However, if you keep your teeth taken care of, there's really nothing to worry about. The article that follows contains things you must know if you wish to use proper dental care every day.
<br/>Brush two times a day. This is the recommendation of the American Dental Association. You owe it to yourself to follow through with your oral hygiene by adhering to at least the minimum guidelines. Don't forget to floss!
<br/>Switching to a different type of toothpaste may help you deal with heat- and cold-sensitive teeth. However, it is a good idea to visit your dentist first, before you make any changes. After meeting with you, the dentist should have a better idea of what is behind your hypersensitivity.
<br/>Many prescription medicines can cause dry mouth. If your mouth does not produce enough saliva, you may tend to get more cavities. Work to get to the root of the problem by consulting with the physician that prescribes your medications to see if they are the problem. In most cases you can try a different medicine that does not have this side effect. If it is determined that your medication is not to blame, then your doctor can prescribe you a medication to treat dry mouth.
<br/>Hydrogen peroxide can whiten teeth. To safely use hydrogen peroxide, pour a small amount into the bottle cap and dip your toothbrush into it. Gently rub each tooth for two or three minutes. Then brush with the toothpaste of your choice.
<br/>If you are suffering from tooth pain or chipping, visit your dentist immediately. If you delay, your teeth may suffer even greater damage. You should go see your dentist right away instead of waiting for your problem to get worse.
<br/>If you have sensitive teeth, consider switching to a sensitive toothpaste. If you experience pain or discomfort when you eat hot or cold foods and drinks, you may have sensitive teeth. It is important to talk to your dentist about this problem to make sure there isn't a serious cause.
<br/>Do not chew on ice. Ice is hard and you run the risk of breaking a tooth. Your teeth can also be damaged by hard foods like popcorn and nuts, so exercise caution when consuming them. Get to your dentist quickly if you think you have cracked a tooth.
<br/>Your daily dental hygiene regimen is not complete unless you floss at least once a day. Regular flossing will keep your teeth and gums healthy. Place the floss between your teeth. Gently pull the floss to and fro. It shouldn't be in your gums, but rather on the gum line. Take care to floss on both sides, as well as the backside of every tooth.
<br/>As you've read, there are various ways to care for teeth with little effort. Having great teeth can make your confidence soar. Use the advice given in this article, and you are sure to keep your teeth in tip-top shape.
