It is known that a pretty smile depends mainly on having white and healthy teeth.Unfortunately, many negative factors such as coffee or cigarette consumption, a lack of hygiene and excessive consumption of colored drinks cause your teeth to turn yellow over time, thus clearly deteriorating the quality of these teeth as well as their aestheticismTherefore, it is not uncommon for a horde of people to move to a dentist to repair the damage.

Formerly, in some cantons, low-income newlyweds had all their teeth pulled out and dentures put in place to protect themselves from future dental costs. Even without reaching this point, seniors have long had a denture. It was even considered that it was normal to lose one’s teeth as one grew older.

The main consequence of poor oral health in the elderly is malnutrition. An excessive table? Not at all! The discomfort or pain caused by a maladaptive appliance, toothache or an oral infection prevents good chewing. The person then uses less jaw muscles that atrophy, while chewing becomes even more difficult. In general, the assimilation of food is bad, the body muscle mass melts, which increases the risk of falling and weakens the bones. Elderly malnutrition also results in a decrease in immunity, even though it is already in a fragile situation in this respect.

The dental health of seniors can also be jeopardized by a decrease in salivary flow. This usually results from age-related salivary gland atrophy, but may also be related to taking certain medications. However, saliva plays a very important role in the prevention of cavities because it allows a natural cleaning of teeth, at least partial. It also has an antibacterial role, participates in digestion and demineralizes enamel. All this makes a decrease in saliva promotes the appearance of bacterial plaque and inflammation of the gums (periodontics, see infographic). Caries frequently result, but the lesions can go as far as the destruction of the jawbone.
Take care of your teeth

Smile, eat, see bite … Our teeth perform many functions. Real asset of seduction, our capital smile must be maintained. Yet few young people really take care of their teeth, between fast food, alcoholic parties and cigarettes … even if they are not the only ones

To take care of your teeth, nothing is easier. You will soon know how to shine with your smile, follow the guide!


Although the dental care rate is strictly regulated, this is not the case for the price of non-nomenclature prostheses (crowns, bridges, implants, orthodontics, etc.). So for those with expensive, expensive dental care, here is a way to reduce the bill:

– Show your teeth at the faculty of dental surgery (we also speak of odontology faculty) closest to home (there are 26 in France). Each teaching unit has a health center in which medical procedures are performed by students in dental surgery, under the watchful eye of their teachers. When the gesture is complicated, they intervene even directly.

– Idem for dental schools, we never think about it and yet in France we have excellent schools that train excellent dentists ( sos dentiste garde ). And, it is the case to say it because as soon as they go up in cabinet, they have this price there, so enjoy it as there is still time!

Some tips to take care of your teeth

  1. At least once a year at the dentist

Visit your dentist at least once a year for a check, even if you have no problem. If you visit less than once a year, you may develop dental problems. And your wallet will feel that way!

  • To brush your teeth at least twice a day

To brush your teeth, obviously? Brush your teeth at least twice a day with toothpaste to remove plaque optimally. Do you brush your teeth only once a day? From now on, do it too before going to sleep.

It is difficult to have the reflex to brush your teeth after each meal … But it is still better to take 2 minutes of your time than to lose 2 hours at the dentist, right? And it is probably more pleasant for those around you!

A useful brushing. Brushing should last at least 2 minutes. That is what makes the difference so courage! And, be careful, brushing before bed must be meticulous. Indeed, during your sleep, your mouth is parched and the protective effect of saliva reduces which means that the remaining food debris exerts their harmful action throughout the night!

  • Opt for a fluoride toothpaste

Always use fluoride toothpaste. The brand is of little importance. A cheap brand is as effective as an expensive brand. After brushing, spit out your toothpaste without rinsing, or rinse with a little water. The fluoride present in the toothpaste stays longer in your mouth and you are better protected against cavities.

For those who tend to have cavities, choose a fluoride toothpaste that strengthens tooth enamel and helps fight plaque. There is a whole range of fluorinated products. Fluoridic mouthwashes or toothpaste with a high concentration of fluorine (1500 ppm) are the most common

Also, use a whitening toothpaste.

Contrary to advertisements that would suggest the gain of several shades of white in the space of a brushing, whiteness toothpaste is not an oral miracle. However, its action is not ineffective and it allows to note a smile more radiant. In their composition, there are abrasives like silica that facilitate the removal of dental plaque. Your teeth will look immediately whiter. This kind of toothpaste, however, should not be used at each brushing because it could eventually damage the enamel teeth. And the latter, once weakened, makes the tooth more sensitive to staining by food.

  • Replace your toothbrush

Replace your toothbrush every three months, even if there is still no sign of wear. Opt for a medium-toothed toothbrush or an electric toothbrush. As soon as his hair bends, the toothbrush loses its effectiveness. Rinse well after use and store so that it dries well. Never lend your toothbrush and dispose of it after an illness.

  • Flossing after the meal

After each meal, small food remains stuck between your teeth. Use dental floss, a small toothbrush or a special toothpick to prevent plaque formation. Always floss before brushing so fluorine can also access the interdental space.The yellow color print is not necessarily due to the intrinsic nature of your tooth. Sometimes it is partly a game of reflections and shadows. Too fast or superficial brushing can clean the front of the tooth, but leave darker colored residues between each interdental space. These usually tarnish the smile. To eliminate them, consider flossing daily. Slip it gently between your teeth without ever cutting the gum.Another way to get rid of the plaque that accumulates is to consult – at intervals of about a year – a dentist, who can perform a complete descaling of your mouth

  • Rinse with water after the meal

Sugars and acids affect your teeth. This is why it is recommended to drink a glass of water after a meal or chew a xylitol chewing gum. A piece of cheese or another unsweetened dairy product also has a protective effect.

  • Control your diet

Eat maximum five times a day. It is better for your teething to eat something at one time than to nibble small portions throughout the day. Limit snacks to two per day. After eating, wait an hour before brushing your teeth to prevent erosion.Control your diet without too much deprivation. It is not always easy, but you are not told to ban all that is good, just to make some concessions that will allow you to enjoy these “small pleasures” without regret!

Here are some tips to preserve your teeth without too much deprivation: Distribute the food intake (limited to 5 per day); Combine: bread + butter + chocolate or fruit + bread + cheese; Prefer cariostatic foods to cariogenic foods, such as: chocolate confectionery, water or milk to soda and cheese or carbohydrate lipids; Avoid drinks or acidic foods less than an hour before sleeping; Rinse your mouth with water or chew a sugar-free chewing gum after each food intake

  • Caring for your teeth with food

If you already know the foods to avoid to take care of your teeth, some of them have unsuspected virtues to help us keep healthy teeth.


• Mordant with carrots and whole wheat. Raw vegetables and whole wheat bread have a massing power when you chew them. In addition to strengthening the gums, these two foods promote salivation, which has the effect of reducing the acidity in the mouth caused by other foods, and which is harmful to the teeth.


• Salmon and tea for stronger teeth. Black tea, green tea and some types of fish contain a significant amount of fluoride. This substance contained in toothpastes helps to take care of teeth by strengthening the enamel and preventing cavities. Are you afraid of tea stains on your teeth? Just a little toothpaste to make them leave!


• Sesame seeds and milk for calcium intake. Whether it is yogurt, quark or buttermilk, all dairy products are high in calcium, and so are sesame seeds. Calcium strengthens the enamel, and arms your teeth against cavities. Also, think of unsuspected foods like broccoli, kale, fennel, and leek, all high in calcium.


• A good cheese for your enamel. In addition to giving a feeling of fullness after the meal, the cheese protects your teeth. It strengthens the enamel and neutralizes acids.


• An apple occasionally for the teeth. Apples are like natural toothbrushes. Thanks to their fibers, they allow a deep cleaning and make a good ally of pre-brushing to take care of the teeth.

After a meal that you can not follow with a toothbrush, you can also eat a “cleaning” food. In the first place, the apple, whose acidity and firmness help to remove excess tartar. However, remember to drink a glass of water afterwards so that the acidity does not attack the enamel. You can also taste a carrot or celery root.
• Fight bad breath with parsley and cardamom. Both products release essential oils when eaten and act as a mouth sanitizer.

The foods you consume on a daily basis are responsible for the loss of radiance of your smile. Some are known to stain teeth. Your penchant for red wine, acidic and full of tannins, is one of the enemies of your teething. Other drinks such as coffee, cocoa and tea are also singled out.

  • Think about grandma’s recipes

Grandma’s recipes for white teeth are very numerous, often phantasmagorical and sometimes even … dangerous. Once a week, soak your toothbrush in baking soda and then proceed as usual. The abrasive power will have a visible impact but it should not be abused to avoid damaging the enamel. Same thing for lemon juice that is used in a similar way, and whose acidity can also attack the tooth. Finally, you can add vegetable charcoal powder to your usual toothpaste once or twice a week.

  1. Do not smoke and avoid stress

Smoking and stress have a negative effect on your oral health. It is the cigarette that will really go to war because nicotine and tar is responsible for the responsible for the rapid tarnishing of your smile.

  1. Drinking water often

Drink as much water as possible. Refreshing drinks, fruit juices and alcohol contain a mixture of sugars and acids, which affect the tooth enamel.

  1. Bleaching with hydrogen peroxide

Unlike smile bars that offer a very partial and unsustainable solution, whitening at the dentist is a serious and effective alternative for whiter teeth. Contacting a specialist for this hydrogen peroxide treatment will cost you between € 400 and € 1,000 depending on the practice. The result will be convincing to the extent that you will gain several shades immediately and this in a sustainable way.

  1. Give way to facets

Last issue that many American celebrities have used, from the smile Joey Starr white Vanish: the facets. The dentist deposits on the teeth – previously cut to accommodate – a prosthesis. This, made to measure, allows the correction of the original shade, the shape of the teeth and any malposition. However, this entails a very substantial cost – around 600 € a tooth – and very rarely reimbursed.

However, saliva plays a very important role in the prevention of cavities because it allows a natural cleaning of teeth, at least partial. It also has an antibacterial role, participates in digestion and demineralizes enamel. All this makes a decrease in saliva promotes the appearance of bacterial plaque and inflammation of the gums (periodontics, see infographic). Caries frequently result, but the lesions can go as far as the destruction of the jawbone.

Some tips to take care of your teeth

  1. At least once a year at the dentist

Visit your dentist at least once a year for a check, even if you have no problem. If you visit less than once a year, you may develop dental problems. And your wallet will feel that way!

  • To brush your teeth at least twice a day

To brush your teeth, obviously? Brush your teeth at least twice a day with toothpaste to remove plaque optimally. Do you brush your teeth only once a day? From now on, do it too before going to sleep.

It is difficult to have the reflex to brush your teeth after each meal … But it is still better to take 2 minutes of your time than to lose 2 hours at the dentist, right? And it is probably more pleasant for those around you!

A useful brushing. Brushing should last at least 2 minutes. That is what makes the difference so courage! And, be careful, brushing before bed must be meticulous. Indeed, during your sleep, your mouth is parched and the protective effect of saliva reduces which means that the remaining food debris exerts their harmful action throughout the night!

  • Opt for a fluoride toothpaste

Always use fluoride toothpaste. The brand is of little importance. A cheap brand is as effective as an expensive brand. After brushing, spit out your toothpaste without rinsing, or rinse with a little water. The fluoride present in the toothpaste stays longer in your mouth and you are better protected against cavities.

For those who tend to have cavities, choose a fluoride toothpaste that strengthens tooth enamel and helps fight plaque. There is a whole range of fluorinated products. Fluoridic mouthwashes or toothpaste with a high concentration of fluorine (1500 ppm) are the most common

Also, use a whitening toothpaste.

Contrary to advertisements that would suggest the gain of several shades of white in the space of a brushing, whiteness toothpaste is not an oral miracle. However, its action is not ineffective and it allows to note a smile more radiant. In their composition, there are abrasives like silica that facilitate the removal of dental plaque. Your teeth will look immediately whiter. This kind of toothpaste, however, should not be used at each brushing because it could eventually damage the enamel teeth. And the latter, once weakened, makes the tooth more sensitive to staining by food.

  • Replace your toothbrush

Replace your toothbrush every three months, even if there is still no sign of wear. Opt for a medium-toothed toothbrush or an electric toothbrush. As soon as his hair bends, the toothbrush loses its effectiveness. Rinse well after use and store so that it dries well. Never lend your toothbrush and dispose of it after an illness.

  • Flossing after the meal

After each meal, small food remains stuck between your teeth. Use dental floss, a small toothbrush or a special toothpick to prevent plaque formation. Always floss before brushing so fluorine can also access the interdental space.

The yellow color print is not necessarily due to the intrinsic nature of your tooth. Sometimes it is partly a game of reflections and shadows. Too fast or superficial brushing can clean the front of the tooth, but leave darker colored residues between each interdental space. These usually tarnish the smile. To eliminate them, consider flossing daily. Slip it gently between your teeth without ever cutting the gum.

Another way to get rid of the plaque that accumulates is to consult – at intervals of about a year – a dentist, who can perform a complete descaling of your mouth

  • Rinse with water after the meal

Sugars and acids affect your teeth. This is why it is recommended to drink a glass of water after a meal or chew a xylitol chewing gum. A piece of cheese or another unsweetened dairy product also has a protective effect.

  • Control your diet

Eat maximum five times a day. It is better for your teething to eat something at one time than to nibble small portions throughout the day. Limit snacks to two per day. After eating, wait an hour before brushing your teeth to prevent erosion.

Control your diet without too much deprivation. It is not always easy, but you are not told to ban all that is good, just to make some concessions that will allow you to enjoy these “small pleasures” without regret!

Here are some tips to preserve your teeth without too much deprivation: Distribute the food intake (limited to 5 per day); Combine: bread + butter + chocolate or fruit + bread + cheese; Prefer cariostatic foods to cariogenic foods, such as: chocolate confectionery, water or milk to soda and cheese or carbohydrate lipids; Avoid drinks or acidic foods less than an hour before sleeping; Rinse your mouth with water or chew a sugar-free chewing gum after each food intake.

  • Caring for your teeth with food

If you already know the foods to avoid to take care of your teeth, some of them have unsuspected virtues to help us keep healthy teeth.


• Mordant with carrots and whole wheat. Raw vegetables and whole wheat bread have a massing power when you chew them. In addition to strengthening the gums, these two foods promote salivation, which has the effect of reducing the acidity in the mouth caused by other foods, and which is harmful to the teeth.


• Salmon and tea for stronger teeth. Black tea, green tea and some types of fish contain a significant amount of fluoride. This substance contained in toothpastes helps to take care of teeth by strengthening the enamel and preventing cavities. Are you afraid of tea stains on your teeth? Just a little toothpaste to make them leave!


• Sesame seeds and milk for calcium intake. Whether it is yogurt, quark or buttermilk, all dairy products are high in calcium, and so are sesame seeds. Calcium strengthens the enamel, and arms your teeth against cavities. Also, think of unsuspected foods like broccoli, kale, fennel, and leek, all high in calcium.


• A good cheese for your enamel. In addition to giving a feeling of fullness after the meal, the cheese protects your teeth. It strengthens the enamel and neutralizes acids.


• An apple occasionally for the teeth. Apples are like natural toothbrushes. Thanks to their fibers, they allow a deep cleaning and make a good ally of pre-brushing to take care of the teeth.

After a meal that you can not follow with a toothbrush, you can also eat a “cleaning” food. In the first place, the apple, whose acidity and firmness help to remove excess tartar. However, remember to drink a glass of water afterwards so that the acidity does not attack the enamel. You can also taste a carrot or celery root.


• Fight bad breath with parsley and cardamom. Both products release essential oils when eaten and act as a mouth sanitizer.

The foods you consume on a daily basis are responsible for the loss of radiance of your smile. Some are known to stain teeth. Your penchant for red wine, acidic and full of tannins, is one of the enemies of your teething. Other drinks such as coffee, cocoa and tea are also singled out.

  • Think about grandma’s recipes

Grandma’s recipes for white teeth are very numerous, often phantasmagorical and sometimes even … dangerous. Once a week, soak your toothbrush in baking soda and then proceed as usual. The abrasive power will have a visible impact but it should not be abused to avoid damaging the enamel. Same thing for lemon juice that is used in a similar way, and whose acidity can also attack the tooth. Finally, you can add vegetable charcoal powder to your usual toothpaste once or twice a week.

  1. Do not smoke and avoid stress

Smoking and stress have a negative effect on your oral health. It is the cigarette that will really go to war because nicotine and tar is responsible for the responsible for the rapid tarnishing of your smile.

Drink as much water as possible. Refreshing drinks, fruit juices and alcohol contain a mixture of sugars and acids, which affect the tooth enamel.

  1. Bleaching with hydrogen peroxide

Contacting a specialist for this hydrogen peroxide treatment will cost you between € 400 and € 1,000 depending on the practice. The result will be convincing to the extent that you will gain several shades immediately and this in a sustainable way.

  1. Give way to facets

Last issue that many American celebrities have used, from the smile Joey Starr white Vanish: the facets. The dentist deposits on the teeth – previously cut to accommodate – a prosthesis. This, made to measure, allows the correction of the original shade, the shape of the teeth and any malposition. However, this entails a very substantial cost – around 600 € a tooth – and very rarely reimbursed.
