4 Tips For Cleaning Your Teeth On The Go
Living a busy life and maintaining your oral hygiene can seem like a tough task if you let it get the better of you, however there are ways to keep your teeth, mouth and gums healthy. So read on to find out some great little tips to keep your mouth happy.
The key to brushing your teeth on the go is to always be prepared, but firstly we need to look at your routine first. Are you always in the same place? Or are you always in many different and new places? If the answer is yes to the first question then it is a good idea to have a toothbrush in the places that you are likely to be, if this is not possible or you fall into the second category it is a great idea to carry a toothbrush and toothpaste in your bag. Remember all that you really need are these things plus some water and two minutes of your time, so there really isn’t any excuse not to brush.
Because plaque, excess food and acids can build up in the mouth over time, you should constantly be rinsing your mouth and drinking water. This can help to clear the mouth of these cavity causing nasties, and also has the added benefit of improving your breath and keeping you hydrated.
Keep the sugar to a minimum
When you are very busy it can be very easy and also very tempting to consume a lot of sugar, particularly when consuming sugary snacks like chocolate bars. Things like chocolate and sweets can become stuck in the teeth and the sugar will cause the buildup of plaque and bacteria in the mouth.
Chew sugar free gum
Sometimes it isn’t practical to brush your teeth whilst on the go, particularly if you are in a long series of meetings with very little breaks in between. This is where sugar free chewing gum can be a lifesaver, especially because it helps your mouth to produce saliva, which acts to naturally clean the mouth. The other added benefit of chewing gum is fresher breath for longer and it is also very easy to carry around with you.
