Taking care of your teeth and gums is essential to good oral health. Ensuring that your mouth is healthy is important to overall well being. It can also help you avoid painful and expensive cavities, oral infections, and diseases of the mouth like gingivitis. Studies have also shown that plaque buildup on teeth can contribute to artery and heart disease, so regular brushing and flossing is essential. Good oral health can also help you avoid embarrassing conditions like bad breath or yellowing teeth. Make sure include regular brushing as a part of your every day routine, and your teeth and gums will thank you.

Brushing and Flossing

  1. Always brush your teeth before bedtime, and after every meal if at all possible.
  2. Use toothpaste that contains fluoride to help prevent cavities.
  3. A soft head or medium head toothbrush are best; hard bristles can be too tough on teeth and cause irritation of the enamel.
  4. Flossing after brushing each time helps remove plaque from between the teeth, and helps with breath.
  5. Brush your tongue as well as your teeth to help eliminate mouth-borne bacteria.
  6. A mouthwash can help with oral health; mouthwashes with alcohol can dry out the mouth, so try to use brands that contain no alcohol.
  7. If you do not have toothpaste, baking soda and water works just as effectively as brand name toothpaste.
  8. Be sure to brush below the gum line as well as directly on the teeth.
  9. While brushing, the length of time it takes to brush should be no less than two minutes.
  10. Dental floss with mint flavoring can help to promote good breath.
Healthy Diet

  1. Avoid eating too much sugar and drinking sugary drinks such as soda, sweetened teas, or fruit juices.
  2. Nuts, dairy foods such as cheese, and meats are all good dietary choices that can help strengthen enamel because of the calcium and vitamins they provide.
  3. Foods like bananas and French fries are bad for the teeth, since these types of foods tend to stick to your teeth throughout the day.
  4. Chewing sugarless gum after a meal is a good way to substitute brushing in between meals; it can help remove food particles from between the teeth.
  5. Foods like onion and garlic can contribute to bad breath. If you do eat these types of foods, try to brush your teeth as soon as possible afterward.
  6. Snacking between meals should be limited. If you choose to snack, try to eat healthy foods without sugar.
  7. Acidic foods and drink such as oranges or orange juice can promote tooth decay and enamel wear. If you do consume acidic foods, be sure to brush your teeth afterwards.
  8. Vitamin deficiency can cause tooth decay and oral disease. Make sure you are getting enough essential vitamins such as the B vitamins, calcium, and other much needed essentials.
  9. Fresh fruits like apples can be good for your teeth because they can help remove loose foods and clean the surface of your teeth.
  10. The average adult should get a minimum of 500 milligrams of calcium per day to ensure healthy, strong teeth.
Long-Term Dental Care

  1. Getting regular teeth cleanings and checkups at the dentist every six months is recommended.
  2. Replace your toothbrush every two months to ensure proper cleaning. Keep brushes free from germs.
  3. A sealant can be applied to the teeth by an oral health professional, which will help protect enamel and keep teeth looking their best.
  4. Braces can sometimes be recommended by an orthodontist to help teeth grow straight. Sometimes, adults can wear braces to help the appearance of their teeth.
  5. If you have a toothache, it is important to seek dental care immediately as this could be a potential infection or abscess tooth.
  6. Children as young as six months old should begin visiting a dentist regularly to check for any potential problems and begin a lifetime of healthy oral care.
  7. Those with heart valve problems or a compromised immune system should always take antibiotics before any dental work is performed.
  8. Avoid chewing tobacco or smoking to help ensure gum, mouth, and teeth health for life.
  9. Good long term dental care can prevent excess dentist visits, cavities, yellowing teeth, and bad breath.
  10. Always communicate any changes in tooth sensitivity, tastes in your mouth, or other issues with your dentist so they can help assess potential problems.

Exercise to avoid KNEE PAIN !!!

Knees are the most commonly injured joints in the body. Considering that when you simply walk up stairs, the pressure across your knee joints is four times your body weight, it isn't surprising. 
Simple, everyday wear and tear can end up hurting your mobility.

But it’s not too late. Like a rusty door hinge, with care and maintenance, you knees can be trouble free. Even if you already experience problems, exercising the muscles surrounding the knee joints Quadriceps (front of thigh), Hamstrings (back of thigh), Abductor (outside thigh), and Adductor (inside thigh) will help make your knees stronger and less susceptible to injury.

Exercise keeps your joints from stiffening and provides needed support, making movement easier and reducing pain.

Here are some exercises you can do to both stretch and strengthen the
knee area:


    • Chair knee extension: Sitting in a chair, rest your foot on another chair so the knee is slightly raised. Gently push the raised knee toward the floor using only leg muscles. Hold for 5 - 10 seconds and release. Repeat 5 times on each leg.
    • Heel slide knee extension: Lie on your back, with left knee bent and left foot flat on floor. Slowly slide the left heel away from your body so both legs are parallel. Hold for 5-10 seconds, return to starting position. Repeat 5 times on each leg.                       
    • Knee flexion: Sitting in a chair, loop a long towel under your foot (resting on the floor). Gently pull on the towel with both hands to bend the knee, raising your foot 4 - 5 inches off the floor. Hold for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. Repeat 5 times on each leg.
    • Hamstring stretch: Standing, put one foot in front of you, toes up. With hands on the small of your back (or one hand holding a chair for balance), bend the opposite knee and hip (not your lower back), until you feel the hamstrings stretch. The upper body comes forward at the hip. Hold for 5 -10 seconds, then release. Repeat 5 times on each leg.
    • Wall slide: Leaning with your back against a wall, bend your knees 30°, sliding down the wall, then straighten up again. Move slowly and smoothly, using your hands on the wall for balance. Keep feet and legs parallel, and do not allow knees to go out over the toes. Repeat 5 -10 times.
    • Bent-Leg Raises: Sitting in a chair, straighten one leg in the air (without locking the knee). Hold for about one minute. Bend your knee to lower the leg about halfway to the floor. Hold for 30 seconds. Return to starting position. Work up to 4 reps on each leg.
    • Straight-Leg Raises: Sitting in a chair, rest your foot on another chair. Lift the foot a few inches off the chair while keeping your leg straight. Hold for 5 -10 seconds. Return to resting position. Repeat 5 -10 times. (Also work on increasing the time, up to 2-3 minutes if possible.)
    • Abductor Raise: Lie on your side, propped on one elbow. The leg on the floor bent, the other straight. Slowly lift the top leg, hold for 5 -10 seconds, then lower. (Ankle weights will increase the intensity). Do 1-3 sets with 12-15 repetitions each. Remember to rest in between sets.
    • Hamstring Curl: Stand with the front of your thighs against a surface (a table or wall). Flex one knee up as far as is comfortable. Hold for 5 - 10 seconds, then lower slowly. If possible, do not touch the floor between repetitions. (Ankle weights will increase the intensity.) Do 1-3 sets with 12-15 repetitions each. Remember to rest in between sets.
    • Step-Ups: Stand in front of a step, like a sturdy bench or stairs, about two feet high (or less if necessary). Step up onto the support, straighten your knees fully (without locking them) and step down. Maintain a steady pace. If you are comfortable with your balance, pump your arms while doing this exercise. Start with 1 minute, slowly building your time. Gets your heart pumping too!
    • Stationary Bike: Biking is a good way to increase strength and range of motion. Make sure you have the right positioning of the legs. At the bottom of the pedal stroke, the bend in the knee should be 15 degrees. Start with 10 minutes and slowly increase your time.
    Depending on your current level of activity and mobility, a good start is 3 stretching and 3 strengthening exercises, 3-4 times a week. Stretching can be (and should be) done everyday if possible to prevent stiffness and achy joints. These stretches can be done a few times a day if needed.
