Oral health is really important. Not just for a healthy, attractive smile but also for good general health. Many research studies have shown links between poor oral health and an increased risk of medical conditions, so looking after your teeth and gums has never been more important.
You should brush your teeth twice a day, every day, for at least two minutes each time. If you struggle to keep tabs on how long you brush, you can now buy toothbrushes with in-built timers. When you brush make sure that you cover the whole of your mouth and brush the outer and inner surfaces of the teeth, as well as the biting surface. Electric toothbrushes are proven to remove more plaque. You should use fluoride toothpaste and a brush with a small or medium-sized head to enable you to reach difficult corners in the mouth.
Flossing is often overlooked but it is extremely important. There are many different types of dental floss available, including flavoured floss and floss for sensitive teeth.
Rinsing with mouthwash can also be beneficial, as it helps to wash away plaque and food particles to leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean. Mouthwash is particularly beneficial for people who suffer from bad breath.
