Oral Hygiene & Cleaning

Poor oral health can damage your general health and is a risk factor for diseases like heart disease and diabetes. Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for your teeth and gums. Here are some tips for practicing good oral hygiene:

  • Brush for two minutes at least twice daily.
  • Usage floss, interdental brushes, floss picks, or water flosses to regularly clean in between your teeth. Don’t forget to brush all of your teeth.
  • Use fluoride-containing mouthwash or toothpaste.
  • Visit your dentist twice a year for preventive care.
  • Observe the dental hygienists and dentist’s recommended oral hygiene regimens.
  • You can look and feel better, eat and speak more comfortably, and even save money with healthy teeth and gums.

3 Steps for the Best Brushing Technique

Step 1: Gently brush the front and rear surfaces of the teeth in a tiny circular motion while angling the brush at a 45° angle toward your gum line.

Step 2: Use quick, back-and-forth strokes to gently brush the biting surface.

Step 3: Brush the surface of your tongue softly to improve your breath.

Best Flossing Technique in 3 Steps

  1. Use an 18-inch piece of dental floss.
  2. Insert the floss between two teeth, taking care not to force it through because doing so could harm your gums. Form a C shape with the floss as you wrap it around the tooth.
  3. Gently move the floss in a C-shape along one side of a tooth. Then, repeat on the other teeth.

Inflamed gums or gum disease can be stopped in their tracks with preventative measures including good brushing and flossing techniques. Daily oral hygiene is crucial for maintaining both healthy oral and overall health.
