- So if you forgot your toothbrush or you just need a smile booster these simple teeth-cleaning secrets are for you.
Start the day with a cup of tea.
The Flavonoids in tea help to prevent harmful bacteria from sticking to teeth, and block production of a type of sugar that contributes to cavities. Tea also contains high amounts of fluoride, which strengthens teeth.
For healthier teeth Seek cinnamon in your tea or other ways. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago found that cinnamon-flavored chewing gum reduces bacteria in the mouth.
The gum contains cinnamon aldehyde (the compound that gives cinnamon it’s flavor and color), a plant essential oil that inhibits the growth of cavity causing bacteria.
Add more foods that scrub.
Foods that are firm or crisp help to clean the teeth as they are eaten. Maintain healthy teeth on the go by enjoying apples, carrots, celery, and unsweetened popcorn.
- For best results, make these “detergent” foods the final course in your meal. To add to this grab some mouthwash. Giving the mouth a thorough rinse after meals can make a world of difference.
- Finally, you should never forget to hydrate your mouth. Drink a glass of water for every hour that you’re at work.
The more water you drink, the more bacteria you flush off your teeth and out of your mouth, which means less risk of gum disease, fewer cavities, and fresher breath.
