Work in Sales? Keep Your Smile Healthy

I recently began working in sales. Smiling is very important when you work in sales, but I kept it to a minimum because I was not happy with my teeth. I had a tooth near the front of my mouth that was discolored from a bad cavity (my dentist says it became dark because the nerve was dead), and it embarrassed me. I always felt like it affected my income, so I finally saved up and had a crown put on that tooth. I also whitened the rest of my teeth. I now love my smile and I think it shows! I cannot stop smiling! My commissions also show my increased self-confidence, because I am making more money than ever. I created this blog to help other people struggling to make money in sales realize that a bright, healthy smile can help you and your bank account!

Tips On Mastering Your Toothbrush

Dentist Blog

Anyone in their right mind will tell you that brushing your teeth with regularity is a key to maintaining healthy teeth and equally healthy gums. In addition to regular brushing though, you will need to purchase the appropriate toothbrush and brush your teeth in the most effective manner possible. If you brush correctly—which also means doing so at least twice a day for intervals of between two to three minutes—you are well on your way to achieving long-lasting oral health.

Selecting the Toothbrush that Works Best For You

Thousands of years ago, people began to clean their teeth with bits of twigs. This is what was available to them, so this is what they used. But our contemporary culture has come a long way in terms of the toothbrushes available to us. For example, some people opt for manual toothbrushes whereas others enjoy toothbrushes of an electric disposition. All in all, the very first step in keeping your teeth in optimal shape is by selecting a toothbrush that works for your lifestyle.

But with such a wide variety of toothbrushes on the market, you will want to keep the following aspects in mind:

  1. Consider the strength and texture of your toothbrushes bristles. Are they hard or soft? Keep in mind that hard bristles can sometimes prove damaging to the tooth's surface or gums.
  2. Select a toothbrush that matches your stature, as well as that of your mouth. For example, if you have a relatively small mouth you will not want to use an oversized toothbrush that will only fit clumsily within your hand.
  3. Assess whether or not the toothbrush you selected is simple to use. If this means implementing a manual toothbrush, then use a manual one. Conversely, you may find that you are more comfortable using an electric brush. This facet is truly subjective.

Practicing Good Tooth-brushing Technique

Just because you brush your teeth, it is quite important that you do not fall into a trap of misbelief: thinking that this is all you need to do to keep your mouth healthy. The following are some of the top brushing tips:

  • Do not neglect your tongue: by brushing your tongue with your toothbrush, you effectively remove the bacteria found on its surface.
  • Make sure that your toothbrush is clean and fresh before brushing. Doing so will make sure that you are doing more good to your teeth than harm.

If you have any questions about which toothbrush you should use, make sure to speak to a dentist at a clinic like Belle Rive Dental Clinic.
