Muslims refrain from consuming and drinking during the daytime during the Ramadan fasting month. Fasting can affect dental health even though it has many positive health effects. Following are some pointers for keeping up excellent oral hygiene while fasting:
1. To avoid plaque and bacteria accumulation in your mouth, brush your teeth twice a day, especially after Iftar and Suhoor.
2. Use mouthwash to rinse your mouth to eliminate bacteria and freshen your breath.
3. To get rid of tartar and food fragments from in between your teeth, floss frequently.
4. To avoid dental decay, bad odor, and dry mouth, drink plenty of water.
5. Avoid foods and beverages that are high in sugar and acid because they increase the risk of teeth erosion and decay.
6. To promote salivation, which neutralizes acid and guards against tooth decay, chew sugar-free gum.
7. For routine checkups and if you have any worries about your oral health while fasting, don’t be afraid to consult your dentist.
Maintaining healthy teeth and gums while fasting depends on practicing excellent oral hygiene. You can make sure that your oral health endures this fasting time by paying attention to these suggestions.
