My Top Tips For Improving Your Oral Hygiene

Hey neighbors!

Every aspect of my health and fitness is important to me, from the food I eat to the exercise I get. There can be things big and small that make a difference to how healthy I am. So I try to incorporate lots of things into my lifestyle to make it healthier. Apart from major considerations like my diet and workout routine, there are also other things to think about. Necessities like looking after my skin and teeth might not seem as significant. But they're still important. Plus, they tie into what I eat and my activity levels. One of the things I have always tried to do is look after my teeth and oral health. My husband was a dental assistant in the military and he set down some dental health rules in the home. If you want to improve yours, here are some of my top tips.

Get a New Toothbrush

A lot of people will hang onto a toothbrush for ages. Even if they can see it's getting past its best, they only remember to replace it when they're brushing. As soon as they leave the bathroom, they've forgotten again. I always keep some spares in my bathroom cabinet. But I prefer to have an electric toothbrush and some extra heads. Electric toothbrushes aren't for everyone. Some people don't like the feel of them on their teeth. But I think they give you a more thorough clean with less work. If you're not sure what to look for in an electric toothbrush, you can check out toothbrushman.com. There you will find lots of reviews to help you find the right one for you.

Use a Mouthwash

Brushing your teeth might clean them, but it doesn't tackle the rest of your mouth. It helps to get rid of plaque on your teeth, but there could still be bacteria left. A good mouthwash not only helps to make your mouth cleaner, but it leaves you feeling more refreshed. Some people like to brush their tongue, but if it makes you gag, you might be better off using mouthwash. It can kill off any bacteria you didn't manage to clean away with brushing. You can also find medical washes that can help you tackle any problems, such as gum disease or mouth ulcers.

Don't Forget to Floss

Flossing is also an important thing to do after brushing, and I always make sure that I do it. Using a toothbrush won't necessarily do a great job of cleaning between your teeth. Flossing will take care of that. Most experts recommend that you should floss every day. Some say you should always do it after brushing your teeth. It helps to prevent gum disease by stopping the buildup of plaque.

Change When You Brush

Changing your brushing and flossing routine could help you to improve your oral health too. Some dental hygiene experts say that you should brush and floss 20 minutes after each meal. You should be careful not to brush your teeth too soon after having sugary drinks or other foods that could soften the enamel.

If you want to improve your oral hygiene, there are lots of steps you can take. I recommend starting with the ones above first. See you soon!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
