Poseidon inductive rechargeable oral irrigator with high capacity water tankBrush twice a day

Brush twice a day for two minutes with a soft-bristle toothbrush. Brushing reduces plaque buildup and removes cavity-causing foods from your teeth. With 3 brushing modes – clean, soft and massage, our brand new Poseidon Rechargeable Sonic Toothbrush does a great job of cleaning your mouth.

Floss regularly

Flossing removes plaque that forms between teeth. As an alternative to flossing, our Poseidon Inductive Oral Irrigator cleans below the gum line, under bridgework and around braces. It’s gentle and will not cut sensitive gum tissue.

Try oil pulling

Take a teaspoon of coconut oil and swish it around your mouth for 15-20 minutes. It will cut through plaque on all areas of your teeth. As a word of caution: when you’re finished, dispose of the oil into the trash can, not the sink, as it can cause clogging.

Rinse after meals and snacks

If you aren’t able to immediately brush your teeth after a meal or a sugary treat, drink some water. Rinsing with water or a mouthwash will prevent sugars from lingering on your teeth and eating through your enamel.

Avoid sugary foods

Sugary and sticky foods are among the leading causes of cavities. Choose fruit and other healthy foods as often as possible. When you do enjoy a sweet treat, avoid the stickier choices like caramel and taffy, which are harder to remove from teeth.

Chew gum with xylitol

If you’re going to chew gum, you might as well clean your teeth while you’re at it! Sugarless gum containing xylitol, a natural sugar substitute, is a very effective cavity fighter and neutralizes the bacteria that cause tooth decay.

Sip carbonated beverages through a straw

Sugary and acidic sodas are simply bad for your teeth. However, sipping soda through a straw can help reduce damage to teeth, especially if the straw does not contact your teeth.

Eat a healthy diet

The same way a healthy diet boosts your overall health, it can also protect your teeth. For cleaner teeth, eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and drink unsweetened tea and coffee.

Have an apple for dessert

An apple a day is more likely to keep the dentist away! End your meals with a crunchy food, such as apples and carrots, as they can help clear food residue from teeth.

Visit your dentist regularly

Regular trips to the dentist will help you avoid preventable dental issues. Your dentist will also make further recommendations to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible.
