Finding and maintaining a good oral health routine will ensure that you and your teeth remain very happy for a very long time.
There are numerous products and devices that can be used, but keeping your teeth healthy and clean is really as simple as 1,2,3.
Toothbrushing only takes an average of 4 minutes out of your day, but it is the best thing you can do to prevent oral health diseases occurring and keep your teeth looking healthy and bright.
Using a soft bristled toothbrush with a fluoride toothpaste clean your teeth in circular motions and also don’t forget to GENTLY clean along the gums and gumline. Never brush too hard with your brush, as this will remove dental enamel and also cause gum recession.
Flossing is often overlooked when it comes to dental health, but failing to use floss at least 3 times a week will mean that a large portion of your tooth is left unclean and exposed to decay and disease. Flossing removes this potential harm by clearing away the food debris and plaque that becomes stuck between the teeth and can also be used to clean the gums between the teeth. Your gums may bleed a little at first, but they will soon get used to the cleaning after which they will stop.
Mouthwash is the finishing touch to your daily dental routine, which clears away any residual plaque and bacteria. When swilling out the mouth it is best to use a fluoride mouthwash rather than water, as water will wash away the benefits of the fluoride that remains in your mouth after brushing. Using mouthwash may remove some of the toothpaste left over, but this will be replaced with a liquid coating of fluoride.
