There can be numerous reasons that can lead to loss of a tooth. The top reasons being Trauma, Improper Oral Hygiene, Gum Diseases, Uncontrolled cavities or Underlying systemic diseases such as diabetes etc.
We at Dent Ally, dental clinic based in Green Park and Vasant Kunj and awarded as best dental clinic in Delhi advise the following measures for maintaining good oral hygiene:
- Proper Brushing: Brushing your teeth everyday, at least 2 times a day for a minimum of 2 minutes and adopting the right technique works best to clean your teeth.
- Good diet: Having a good diet helps in maintaining good oral hygiene. For example, food with high sugar amount which are sticky in nature will lead to negative effect on teeth, leading to cavities whereas consumption of calcium may strengthen your teeth.
- Use of correct mouth rinses: This does not mean you can use any over the counter available mouthwash. But use of the specific mouthwash (mouithrinse) needed for your teeth and advised by your dentist.
