Wish you had a grin as gleaming as your
baby’s first tooth? Try these basic tips so you won’t need to see the dentist
ever so often.
Chew on this
Xylitol is a natural sweetener
After every meal, just pop in a piece of
gum containing xylitol. Dr. Jennifer Jablow, a cosmetic dentist in new York
City, US, adds that chewing gum helps stimulate the flow of saliva, which acts
as your mouth’s own ‘detergent’.
Consider a change of paste
The latest whitening toothpastes available
in the market are not just promising but also assure faster results. But,
before you select any OTC product, check with your dentist and go for a paste
that is appropriate for your teeth.
Dr. Jablow advises drinking dark liquids
such as coffee and tea through a straw to prevent surface stains. She also
recommends eating crunchy foods such as apples, carrots, and celery, which act
like an exfoliant for your teeth.
