Maintaining good dental care doesn't have to happen entirely in the bathroom. Activities such as snacking and yoga classes can assist people with healthy teeth.
There are several different things people can do for strong dental health, alongside a regular schedule of brushing and flossing, CourierPostOnline.com reports.
Adding two ounces of dairy, such as milk, cheese and yogurt, into one's daily diet may reduce the risk of gum disease, according to the article.
Yoga classes may also help with dental care since stress can produce extra amounts of the hormone cortisol, which at high levels have been linked to gum disease, as well as high blood pressure, decreased bone density and increased belly fat, states the Courier. Past research has shown exercise and deep breathing helps people relax and can lower cortisol levels.
People can also chew sugarless gum for dental care, which can break up plaque. Chewing also increases saliva flow, which helps re-mineralize teeth.
The American Dental Association has also suggested fluoride treatments for people prone to cavities to increase dental health.
