If you wait to start taking care of what you have until later in life, chances are good the damage is already done and it is much more difficult to retain the pearly whites in your mouth without having to introduce synthetics into the equation.
What Can I Do?
Most of the things you have been told your whole life are true. It is important to brush gently at least twice a day for at least two minutes, spending about thirty seconds on each quarter of your mouth.
Floss with at least one of these brushings and rinse thoroughly with mouthwash. Do your research and talk with your dentist or hygienist about what foods you should eat, and which you should avoid.
See what he/she recommends for your intake of acidic foods, carbs, sweets, and other specific groups that influence your teeth and overall oral health. If you take good care of them now, they will serve you for plenty of time to come.
Make sure lines of communications are open with your oral health team, as they can help you find the best routine for your lifestyle. There are a lot of options to keep your mouth and teeth, fresh, clean, and strong.
