Good daily dental hygiene has a direct impact on your long term oral health.
Here are some simple tips that make all the difference!
It is recommended that you brush at least twice per day. If you suffer from gum disease, you are advised to brush thoroughly three times per day. Take care not to consume any food or drink after your nighttime brushing.
Choosing the right toothbrush is important! A brush with soft bristles and a small head is the one to choose.
This way, you have access to the smallest corners of your mouth when you clean and you can be sure that you thoroughly clean and protect the enamel of all your teeth.
Brushing should go from the gum to the tooth, up and down, in order to protect the enamel. You should also brush your tongue, in order to eliminate the bacteria that can cause bad breath.
Choose toothpaste with fluoride to help prevent cavities.
You can also select toothpaste that is adapted to your specific age range.
Certain foods, such as citrus, fruit juices and soft drinks damage tooth enamel.
Make sure to consume them only in moderation.
