  • Rinse thoroughly after every meal either with water or a mouthwash.
  • Use floss or an interdental brush after a heavy meal to clean the gaps between the two teeth.
  • Use a mouth freshener in case you have heavily garnished meals.
  • Avoid sugary snacks (or include them along with your meals).
  • Try and munch on natural vegetables and fruits to satisfy your cravings as the fibers in them act as natural cleansers for your teeth.
  • You can also eat cheese to end your meal as it increases the salivary flow and reduces the risk of cavities as it cleans the sugar out of your mouth.
  • Sugarless gums are a great aid when you just can't brush or floss your teeth amidst an important meeting. Moreover, chewing xylitol gums also increase the salivary flow, like cheese, and reduce cavities.
  • Reduce your intake of tea or coffee to avoid getting unnecessary stains on teeth.
