Caring for Your Teeth: What Everyone Needs to Know

You’ve heard this phrase over and over before: you only get one set of teeth. While dental improvements have made it a lot easier and more affordable to get quality crowns and implants, you don’t want to have to go that route if you can preserve your natural teeth.

However, for many people, going to the dentist is a scary experience. That doesn’t mean that you don’t need to go, but it does mean that you can minimize pain and dental procedures by taking extra good care of your teeth at home.

Whether your 18 or 80, there are a ton of things you can do to preserve your natural teeth. Use these tips to make sure your mouth is healthy.

Floss Often, Brush Too

You know you’re supposed to floss, but do you do it enough? According to many dentists you really should be flossing after every meal. If you can, try taking floss with you to work. Leave it in your desk and grab a string when you need it.

You also know that you’re supposed to be brushing your teeth regularly, but how regularly? Ideally, you want to brush after every meal, but only after about 30 minutes have passed after meal times.

Brushing too early can cause the acid in the foods you ate to work against your enamel. If you can’t brush, rinse with water and chew gum with xylitol.

Eat the Right Foods

Not all foods are bad for your teeth. Some are actually quite good for your dental health and work to actually clean your teeth.

Common cleaning foods include chicken, apples, eggs, cilantro, brown rice, bran and more work to keep teeth healthy.

Visit Your Dentist

Nobody loves going to the dentist, but that doesn’t mean that you can skip visits if you take good care of your teeth at home. What you can do is visit your dentist more often – once every six months, to be exact – so that you don’t need painful root canals and expensive restorative procedures like crowns and implants.

Find a Brooklyn dentist you love and make regular appointments! They’ll even let you know when your next exam is coming up if you let them know you would like a reminder.

It’s worth getting regular exams and cleanings to avoid more serious dental work because you neglected your pearly whites.

Bath & Body Works Holiday Hand soap great for Christmas gifts


How many times do you wash your hands? I do not know how many I wash my hands. We use soaps every time we wash our hands.  My hands are very dry too.

I bought hand soaps from Bath & Body Works at the mall lasts Saturday. They have a sale for four pieces for $10. It was 50% off from the original price. How I wish I bought more. The ones I have are for my Mom. I will put it in my big box. The hand soaps are their holiday collections. It smells very good and it cleans your hands too.  It is anti-bacterial hand soaps. This is great for holiday gifts you can give to a friend. I wanted to go back to the mall. I hope the sale is still going on. What about you? What kind of hand washes do you use? Do you like the Bath Works products too?

To douche or not to douche is your own choice


Growing up I never use deuce after my menstrual period. I know that there are products to use to wash your private parts. I learned it when I came to America. It took me awhile to include it in  my routine. I feel uneasy using it for the first time. Now I am using it after my menstrual period is over. It feels so fresh after using it. Do you use deuce or no? There are many kinds of deuce. I use the sensitive as my skin is.
