If you want to keep your teeth looking good, you have to take care of your gums. In doing so, it will prevent a wide range of gum problems and ensure that your teeth remain strong.
We recommend that you floss at least once a day as this will help to remove any hidden plaque between your teeth that toothbrushes cannot reach. You can do it at any time of the day but always remember to do it.
Brush your Teeth Twice a Day
Brushing your teeth twice a day is important to ensure that all the plaque and food stuck on your teeth and gums is removed. And don’t forget to clean your tongue! (Bacteria love to grow on the back of your tongue).
Visit your Dentist Regularly
There are many reasons why you should visit your dentist routinely. Going regularly will enable them to detect the early signs of gum disease before more serious damage is done.
Choose Fluoride Toothpaste
The shelves are lined with many different kinds of toothpaste and that can make it difficult to choose which one is right for you. Be sure that you choose a toothpaste that has fluoride and is marked with the ADA (American Dental Association) seal.
Use a Mouthwash
There are many different types of mouthwash available. Therapeutic mouthwashes can reduce plaque, gingivitis and slow down the speed at which tartar develops. Just remember, mouthwash is not a replacement for good brushing and flossing.
