As children, we are taught at an early age that you should brush your teeth when you wake up and when you go back to bed. But brushing your teeth is not enough. To keep your mouth really healthy, you will need to have a good routine. Good oral care prevents cavities, inflamed or bleeding gums, and bad breath. Doing nothing about this has very dangerous consequences for your health. No need to panic! We have the best tips for your oral care routine. Because healthy teeth make a happy Smyle.
Brush your teeth
Step one of your perfect oral care routine is pretty obvious and hopefully you do it every day. Choose a toothbrush that suits you best and that you like. Dentists recommend brushing with a fluoride toothpaste, for example our Smyle toothpaste tablets. With Smyle you're brushing vegan, animal-free, plastic-free, and without microplastics. Prefer brushing without fluoride? No problem at all! We make them too. Have you chosen a toothbrush and toothpaste? Then use them twice a day for about two minutes.
Flossing after brushing is very important because you can't reach all the places in your mouth with the toothbrush. Your teeth produce plaque and brushing alone won't get rid of it. So floss at least 2 or 3 times a week after brushing.
Now that your teeth have been brushed and flossed, it's time for mouthwash. Rinsing with mouthwash kills any remaining bad bacteria in your mouth, even in the most congested areas. Mouthwash is good for protecting your tooth enamel and gives you fresh breath!
Brushing your teeth, flossing, and rinsing your mouth with mouthwash together are the perfect routine for healthy oral care. In addition, there are other little things that can help you keep your teeth healthy. For example, wait at least an hour before eating after brushing your teeth. Do not consume too many products that are bad for your teeth. So don't eat too many sweets! And don't forget to visit your dentist once in a while? Preferably twice a year. They will help you on your way to optimal oral care!
Plastic-free oral care
Healthy oral care is based on natural ingredients. But did you know that 9 out of 10 cosmetic products contain microplastics? Toothpaste and mouthwash are no exception! So choose your oral products carefully.
