Ways To Improve Your Oral Hygiene

Posted on 2/20/2023 by Fern Creek Dentistry
Ways To Improve Your Oral HygieneMaintaining good oral hygiene is essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Neglecting your oral health can lead to various problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. You must visit the dentist if you feel you are doing something wrong with your oral hygiene. Continue reading to learn more about the ways to improve oral hygiene:

Brush Twice A day

It would help if you brushed your teeth at least twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed. Use a soft brush and toothpaste that contains fluoride, a mineral that helps to strengthen your teeth. Brush your teeth gently in a circular motion, paying particular attention to the areas where your teeth and gums meet.

Floss Everyday

Flossing helps removes plaque and food particles between your teeth, which your toothbrush can't reach. Use an unwaxed, unflavored dental floss, and gently work the floss between your teeth, using a back-and-forth motion. Be sure to floss under the gum line to remove plaque from this area.

Clean Your Tongue

Your tongue can harbor bacteria and food particles that can cause bad breath. To keep your tongue clean, you can use a tongue scraper or a toothbrush with a tongue cleaner. Gently scrape your tongue from back to front, careful not to press too hard. Rinse your mouth with water afterward.

Visit The Dentist Regularly

The dentist can detect and treat any problems with your teeth or gums before they become serious. They can also provide professional cleaning, removing plaque and tartar that you may have missed.

Watch Your Diet

Eating a balanced diet low in sugar and high in fruits and vegetables can help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Avoiding sugary and acidic foods and drinks, such as soda and candy, can also help to protect your teeth from decay.

Oral hygiene keeps changing as time goes on. It's best if you keep up with the changes. Contact our dentist to learn more info on ways to improve oral hygiene.
