When you’re preparing for a big event or meeting, you want to look your best, the same goes for your smile! You want others to see the beautiful teeth that are hiding behind that closed mouth.
Your smile says so much about who you are as an individual and how confident you feel about yourself and that’s why dental hygiene is so important: it gives you control over how great your smile looks and feels every day.
For Healthier Looking Teeth
- Make sure your toothbrush is clean
- Wash it with soap and water after each use, and replace it every three months
- Don’t share your toothbrush with anyone else, even if they have the same type of mouth as you do.
The bacteria in their mouths could be different from yours, so using their toothbrush could make them sicker than they were before they started using yours.
Using Of Dental Floss
Flossing is a great way to remove plaque from between your teeth and around the gum line. It can also help you prevent gum disease, cavities and bad breath.
To floss properly, wrap about 18 inches of floss around one hand and gently guide it between your teeth using a back-and-forth motion.
Gently curve the tip of the floss into a C shape around each tooth surface to dislodge food particles stuck in these areas.
Repeat this process with every tooth until you’ve reached all surfaces of each tooth and you should do this at least once daily.
There are many types of dental floss available today according to Dr. Philip Sobash so experiment until you find one that works best for you.
The Tongue Needs Brushing Too
Brushing your tongue is important because it helps remove bacteria and food particles that can cause bad breath.
To brush your tongue, simply use a soft-bristled toothbrush, no electric ones. You want to be sure to get all sides of the tongue, but don’t spend too much time on this step; just do it quickly and move on.
The amount of times per day that you should brush depends on how often you eat or drink things like coffee or soda.
If these things are part of your daily routine, then Dr. Philip Sobash recommend brushing more often than if they’re not part of your daily routine at all
Fresh Breath With Mouthwash
Mouthwash is a great way to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath and cavities, it can also help control plaque and gingivitis.
To avoid getting sick, it’s important to clean your toothbrush, if you have a child in your family who has just got strep throat or another contagious illness, give their toothbrush a thorough cleaning with soap and water before using it again
The best mouthwash for you will be different from what works for someone else and what works for me may not work for you, so it’s important to do your research when looking for a mouthwash that is right for you.
Rinsing with water after eating sugary foods or drinking liquids that can damage teeth such as soda is important for preventing cavities, tooth decay and gum disease.
- Rinse your mouth with water for at least one minute, this helps to remove plaque from all areas of your mouth, including hard-to-reach places like behind the back molars.
- Flossing in addition to rinsing will help you get rid of food particles from between your teeth where a toothbrush can’t reach them.
