DENTAL TIPS FOR BETTER HYGIENE
Follow these tips for a great report on your next dental visit!
1) Brush Properly.
It is important to brush after breakfast in the morning to remove plaque and bacteria that have accumulated over night (and from your morning meal) and to brush last thing at night because saliva (which helps to wash the cavity-causing plaque off teeth) dries up as we sleep.
2) Floss your teeth at least once a day if not more.
This will keep plaque from building up.
3) Limit your sugary foods to avoid getting tooth cavities.
4) Use a fluoride toothpaste.
A fluoride tooth paste will help strengthen your enamel, making it tougher for bacterial acids to break down.
5) Electric Toothbrushes.
These are recommended by most dentists for their superior performance when compared to old fashioned manual brushing.
