It is important to maintain good oral hygiene and couple that with regular visits to the dentist. However, there are certain steps that you can take at home to make sure that your teeth remain healthy. These techniques will give you optimum results and are simple to implement.
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day
Remember the first rule for healthy teeth is brushing twice a day. Many people either ignore the idea of brushing at night because they are lazy or simply because they do not know the importance of doing so. Often people brush their teeth only once a day. They use incorrect brushing techniques and the wrong tooth brush.
Dentzz recommends that you brush your teeth twice a day, especially at night to make sure you get rid of all the plaque that has built up during the day. Make sure that you cover every surface. Use a soft bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth.
- Don’t forget to floss
Combine your brushing routine with regular flossing! You will not believe the plaque and food debris that you will dislodge when you floss. It helps keep teeth and gums healthy by removing plaque along the gum line and between teeth. Regular flossing may also reduce chances of gum disease and bad breath. It is best to floss before brushing your teeth. This cleans the tooth and root surface, and removes bacteria and food debris.
- Rinse with Mouthwash
Because our teeth make up only 25% of our mouth, mouthwash plays a very important role in the dental care process. Mouthwash is not to be used regularly like brushing and flossing but it should be used if you are out for a long duration of time and know that you might not get a chance to floss or brush at night. Use mouthwash to eliminate plaque and bacteria that forms on our tongue, inner gums, upper layer of gums, throat etc.
