Avoid using toothpicks, or pins to take out food dislodged between teeth or in cavities. Use floss or interdental brush to take it out.
Use antibiotics only on prescription of your dentist. Unnecessary usage may cause antibiotic resistance.
If you see any cavities developng on your teeth (which look like white spots/ orange-brown spots) make sure to brush that area properly thrice daily. Preventing any plaque build up on that area will prevent the decay from progressing further.
Make sure to brush your tongue also. A dirty tongue can cause bad breath.
Always keep your toothbrush atleast 6 feet away from toilet to prevent splatters from the toilet settling on your brush.
Change your toothbrush after you fall sick.
If there is a cavity in your tooth in which food gets stuck, clean the cavity with an interdental brush and fill it with a cotton soaked in clove oil. Clean the cavity and change that cotton daily.
Use a desensitizing toothpaste available at any local pharmacy if you are suffering from hot/cold sensitivity.
