All you need to know about Oral Hygiene
What is the best type of oral hygiene routine? First things first, begin your routine by flossing, which you should do twice daily to remove any food that can cause plaque. Opt for a soft-bristle brush and brush from the back of the mouth, gradually focusing on every tooth as you move towards the front. Next, rinse with mouthwash to eliminate any bacteria in the mouth. Do this routine twice a day. To keep your teeth healthy, don't drink sugary drinks and eat too much sugary foods. How do I keep my teeth and gums healthy? To keep your mouth, teeth and gums in tip-top condition, use a fluoride toothpaste to protect your teeth from plaque and tartar. Floss twice a day, every day, to ensure that your teeth are free of food pieces, and use a good quality toothbrush and paste. Have regular check-ups with your dentist, and limit your sugar intake. Drink water instead of excessively sugary drinks, and don't smoke. How much toothpaste should I be using? Many dentists generally agree that you don't need to squeeze lots of toothpaste onto your brush to clean your teeth properly. A pea-sized amount of toothpaste is usually considered enough, and you should brush for two minutes, twice a day. How does whitening toothpaste work? There are many whitening toothpastes on the market that remove surface stains on the teeth to make them look much whiter. Some contain ingredients such as baking soda or charcoal, which can remove any discolouration from teeth that has been caused by eating certain foods and drinks like red wine and coffee. Whitening toothpastes usually contain bleaches of some kind, so you should consult your dentist before using them if you have particularly sensitive teeth, or have veneers or crowns.
