Essential Tips for Your Teeth Care at Home

Essential Tips for Your Teeth Care at HomeIn our offices we can take care of and clean your teeth, we are happy to do so, but it is just as important for your oral health that you take care of yourself at home. Read on for the best tips on basic home dental hygiene.

Brush Your Teeth

Our recommendation is that you brush your teeth at least twice a day, every day! With a minimum duration of two minutes. It is important to remember that brushing your teeth more aggressively does not mean that you do it better or faster, in fact, you can hurt your gums by doing it this way. It is best to use a small, soft toothbrush. We recommend that you position it at a 45-degree angle to your gums, use short, gentle strokes, and make sure to cover all surfaces.

Floss Daily

Flossing goes a long way in preventing tooth decay, especially in those areas that are hard to reach with a brush, such as the interdental space. In addition to contributing to the health of your gums. Proper technique is the key, you must make sure that the floss slides slightly under the gum, and you must also reach the corners of your mouth. Once a day is enough, preferably before bed and before brushing your teeth:

Clean Your Tongue

You should never forget to clean your tongue, as it contains a significant amount of bacteria that can accumulate and cause bad breath, as well as discoloration of the tissue. To clean your tongue properly, you must do it from back to front to avoid dragging the bacteria again, and then rinse very well. In our offices, our professionals can guide you in everything you need regarding the care of your teeth, and we will gladly answer all your questions.
