Rinse properly after every meal, reduce your intake of tea or coffee and favour natural vegetables and fruits to take care of your oral health, says an expert.

Use floss or an interdental brush after a heavy meal to clean the gaps between the two teeth.

Avoid sugary snacks (or include them along with your meals).

5. Eat fruits and vegetablesPHOTO: VANJAVA

Try and munch on natural vegetables and fruits to satisfy your cravings as the fibers in them act as natural cleansers for your teeth.

6. Eat cheese after mealsPHOTO: FORTHEMOMMAS

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.

7. Chew sugarless gumPHOTO: SOUTHEASTFAMILYDENTAL

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.

8. Cut down on teaPHOTO: SALON

Reduce your intake of tea or coffee to avoid getting unnecessary stains on teeth.
