Best and Worst Types of Foods for Your Smile

Milk: Milk is one of the best superfoods for your teeth. It provides essential nutrients like calcium and vitamin D to strengthen your teeth, along with giving them a protective layer against harmful bacteria. 

Crunchy veggies and fruits: Fibrous fruits and vegetables like apples, strawberries, carrots, and broccoli require a lot of chewing and contribute to cleaner teeth by getting rid of bad bacteria and plaque.

Sugar-free gum: Choosing to chew sugar-free chewing gums containing Xylitol can prevent tooth decay and may promote remineralization in addition to providing deep teeth cleaning. Besides this, there’s always the instant benefit of freshening your breath by removing bad bacteria.

Water: Drinking plenty of water rinses away food particles and bad bacteria, thereby preventing plaque buildup and tooth cavities. Staying well-hydrated also reduces bad breath and helps in remineralization by stimulating saliva production.

Foods to Avoid:

Avoid foods high in sugars, carbohydrates, and acidic nature; such as chocolates, soft drinks, and chips, as these can promote bad bacteria and cavities. 

Avoid foods that can stain your teeth easily such as wine, coffee, turmeric, or even smoking cigarettes, as all of these can discolor your teeth in the long run.


Dental aligners are a great way to discreetly straighten your teeth and give yourself a straighter and brighter smile. Straightening your teeth with aligners will make them easier to clean, thereby reducing the chances of cavities and plaque buildup. Maintaining good oral hygiene and deep teeth cleaning become much faster, thereby giving you a cleaner and brighter smile in the long run.

Oil Pulling:

his ancient Ayurvedic oral practice reduces harmful bacteria and the build-up of toxins and plaque along with numerous other health benefits. To do oil pulling, simply swish a tablespoon (or any other comfortable amount) of oil that is unrefined and preferably organic and cold-pressed. Swish them about for 10-20 minutes, then spit it out. Oil Pulling can help prevent tooth decay along with promoting deep teeth cleaning and healthier gum health. In addition to this, some people also noticed their teeth getting lighter with a consistent routine. 

Proper Dental Cleaning Techniques:

  1. Flossing: Take about 20 inches of dental floss string and use section by section to clean between an individual set of teeth in thorough, gentle back-and-forth motions. Make sure to floss the back teeth as well. You could even try dental floss alternatives, like dental floss picks if you have braces. Try flossing after each meal or at least after dinner (preferably before you brush).
  1. Brushing: Brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes in angled circular motions with fluoride toothpaste. Choose a brush that’s the right size for you (smaller toothbrushes are usually easier to reach in smaller spaces) and make sure to not exert an excessive amount of pressure. Additionally keep in mind to wait for a suitable time interval after meals to brush (between 30 minutes to an hour), as brushing immediately after meals could damage teeth enamel. 
  1. Tongue cleaning: Choose a proper tongue-cleaning tool, such as a metal tongue cleaner or a tongue-cleaning brush. Start from the back and scrap away the white film on your tongue and rinse. Repeat for the sides and middle portion until your tongue looks clean. 
  1. Mouthwash: Opt for an alcohol-free mouthwash containing fluoride and gargle an appropriate amount in your mouth for 30-60 seconds. Try not to swallow the solution, and avoid rinsing with water to let the active ingredients work.

Following a proper oral care routine at home is an important part of achieving the smile of your dreams. In addition to these at-home methods, make sure to visit your dentist for deep teeth cleaning at least once or twice a year.
