I am not a big fan of the dentist but I am a big fan of having teeth so I make my appointment every 6 months to get my teeth cleaned anyhow.   I struggle with tartar buildup so it is very important for me to keep plague to a minimum.  Plague is basically caused by bacteria in your mouth and they LOVE all those extra bits of food that get stuck between your teeth!  The other day I grabbed an apple on the way out the door and drove around running errands for the next 2 hours with an annoying bit of apple stuck in my teeth!  WHY? Because I did not have any floss with me!  This has happened to me a couple of times and I am happy to have received some Glide floss from Oral-B to throw in my purse for emergency dental hygiene!

Tips for a Healthy Mouth

Oral-B Glide Pro-Health Clinical Protection Floss is clinically proven to help reverse gingivitis in two weeks as part of a comprehensive dental health routine.  Gingivitis is the inflammation of your gums that happens when you get too much plague, tartar and bacteria in your mouth….if your gums bleed when you brush that could be a sign of gingivitis! This floss also protects against cavities and bad breath, leaving a minty cool feeling in your mouth when you are done flossing.  I have really tight spaces in between my teeth and sometimes have trouble getting floss in between them but Oral-B Glide Pro-Health Clinical Protection Floss  slides up to 50 percent more easily in tight spaces versus the leading floss. I seriously loved the minty flavor of this floss and it slid between my teeth so easily.  No bleeding gums from painful flossing at all!  Flossing is one way to achieve a healthy mouth but there are several other things you should be doing, too.

tips for a healthy mouth

Here are a few tips for a healthy mouth that might come in handy for preserving your pretty smile!

1.  Brush after every meal, and be sure that your toothbrush is in good shape.  It should be replaced if you see obvious wear and tear to the bristles.
2.  Drink plenty of water and skip the soda, coffee and acidic juices
3.  Chew natural gums to kill odor-causing bacteria and increase the production of saliva which helps fight bad breath
4.  Visit the dentist every 6 months, whether you like it or not!
5.  Avoid chewing ice, pencils, pen caps and anything else not meant to be chewed on.
6.  Skip the chewy candy and lollies and grab an apple instead.  Not only will you get a healthy mouth but you might lose a couple pounds!
7. Use mouthwash to help freshen breath and kill problem causing bacteria
8.  If you grind your teeth (or even wake up with a sore jaw!), talk to your dentist about a mouth guard to protect your teeth
9.  Invest in a tongue scraper…it may sound odd but scraping your tongue when you brush can help give you a healthy mouth
10.  Eat more yogurt (the live culture, all natural kind!) to help establish the ‘good bacteria’ in your mouth and digestive tract.

  1. I just started noticing that I grind my teeth in my sleep. I know it's due to stress and that I just need to calm the heck down, but I will talk to my dentist about it. Thanks for the tips!
  2. I love Glide floss, but I've never seen that new Scope mouthwash. I've tried other Scope and loved it, so I'll have to check it out!
  3. Thanks for the tips for a healthier smile =)
