It’s fairly easy to incorporate good oral health habits on a daily basis. Once a routine is established, it will become second nature and you’ll do it without even thinking. Protecting the enamel on your teeth is paramount. Remember to eat a variety of foods rich in calcium and other minerals, vitamins and protein to maintain healthy gums. After eating a meal, wait at least an hour to brush your teeth. Instead, chew some sugar-free gum containing xylitol, which will help protect teeth enamel. Another option is to consume a chunk of hard cheese after a meal which will reduce the effect of acids that can damage enamel. Avoid sugary foods and drinks! And skip snacking between meals this helps to reduce bacteria and acids that can cause tooth decay.
