Keeping your teeth clean even when you can’t brush

Brushing your teeth, of course, goes a long way for good oral health. However, we know people are busy with work, school, kids, and life in general. That sometimes leads to poor oral health habits. Below are some tips to keeping your teeth clean when you don’t have a toothbrush near by.

Eat Fruits
Eating fruits is a great way to clean your teeth any time of the day. Even though they have sugar, it’s still far less dangerous to your teeth than sugar that comes from sweets and energy drinks.

Floss
In reality, flossing is really easy to do. You can take floss anywhere you go and practically do it anywhere too. Flossing prevents food from getting stuck between your teeth. This helps the look of your smile and also keeps cavities and gum disease away.

Eat Calcium-packed Food
Calcium is a great way to ensure healthy and strong teeth. You can get calcium from foods such as cheese, yogurt and milk. Eating yogurt or having a glass of milk help your teeth stay healthy.

Avoid Sodas and Other Sugary Drinks  
Drinking soda on a daily basis means you’re damaging your teeth. This is the fastest way to get discolored teeth and cavities. Avoid drinking these drinks altogether, but if you do, brush your teeth afterward.

Rinse
Just like flossing, mouthwash is another easy and accessible thing to do to help oral health. Carry mouthwash in your purse or keep it in your desk at work. It only takes a minute to rinse. If you don’t have access to mouthwash, rinse with regular water. This can ensure that bigger pieces of food don’t get stuck around your teeth.

Always Brush When You Can
Brushing once a day is good, twice a day (morning and evening) is even better and brushing following each meal is ideal. Doing these things will help you maintain good oral health.
