THE ORAL HYGIENE ROUTINE By LEBON
… and you ? Are you doing it right?
Achieving healthy teeth takes a lifetime of care. Even if you’ve been told that you have nice teeth, it’s crucial to take the right steps every day to take care of them and prevent problems. This involves getting the right oral care products, as well as being mindful of your daily habits.
Never go to bed without brushing your teeth
It is no secret that you should at least brush your teeth twice a day. Still, many of us continue to neglect brushing our teeth at night. But brushing before bed gets rid of the germs and plaque that accumulate throughout the day.
The way you brush is equally important. In fact, doing a poor job of brushing your teeth is almost as bad as not brushing at all. Take your time, moving the toothbrush in gentle, circular motions to remove plaque. Do it for at least 2 whole minutes.
Use a LEBON toothpaste
When it comes to toothpaste, there are more important elements to look for than whitening power and flavors. No matter which version you choose, make sure to use a non harmful toothpaste.

The brand LEBON offers a collection of various flavored toothpastes. Each one contains natural ingredients such as organic Aloe Vera and Green Tea. And for its ‘Natural Whitening Series’, enzymes papain are used which allow a natural and gentle whitening, while respecting the enamel of the teeth.

Mouthwashes are useful as an adjunct tool to help bring things into balance. So try to include this step in your everyday beauty routine.
Drink more water
It is very important to keep your body, your skin and your mouth hydrated. It goes without saying that we all need to drink at least 1,5L of water per day. It is also important to drink a glass of water after each meal to help wash out some of the negative effects of sticky and acidic foods and beverages in between brushes.
Limit sugary and acidic foods
Ultimately, sugar converts into acid in the mouth, which can then erode the enamel of your teeth. These acids are what lead to cavities. Acidic fruits, teas, and coffee can also wear down tooth enamel. While you don’t necessarily have to avoid such foods altogether, it doesn’t hurt to be mindful...
