If you look after the health of your teeth, there’s no reason why they can’t last you a lifetime. However for many people, this isn’t possible and they lose their teeth far younger. Why? Often, this is simply down to the way they look after their teeth. It’s not difficult to do but you do need to create good habits and stick to them in order to have healthy teeth and gums. The cornerstone of good oral health is brushing your teeth well. This also means with a good toothbrush, which is going to be an electric one. You will need to invest in a good brush in order to clean them well enough, but also without chipping away any of the enamel. They happens when you brush too hard. Flossing is just as important as brushing because this gets rid of dirt between the teeth where you won’t be able to reach with a brush.
