Brushing is important – but not the only thing to consider, Daily Dental Care

Daily Dental Care

    • For optimum care of your mouth is important to acquire some regular habits that create our daily dental hygiene routine, as plaque builds up on teeth continuously.

  • Note that oral hygiene is not complete without the proper cleaning of other structures that are part of the mouth, in addition to the teeth as the gums and tongue.
  • That’s why we do not just talk about dental hygiene but dentibuccal.
  • Brush your teeth 3 times a day for at least 3 minutes. Proper brushing is to make short, smooth and elliptical motion, not forgetting the gum line.
  • Use a toothpaste with fluoride to strengthen your teeth and prevent tooth decay.
  • Do not forget to brush your tongue or use a tongue cleaner.
  • Remember to gently massage the gums with the brush in a circular motion to stimulate circulation and strengthen.
  • To complete your dental hygiene, use dental floss or inter dental brushes at least once a day to clean the side surfaces of the teeth where a toothbrush can not reach.
  • Finally, rinse your mouth with mouthwash to get some fresh breath and protect your mouth from bacteria.
  • If you eat away from home and you can not brush your teeth, it uses sugarless gum to increase salivation and and decrease in acidity level that occurs in the mouth after meals.
  • Change your toothbrush every 3 months.
  • Make a healthy, balanced diet.
  • Visit your dentist at least once a year. Frequent revisions are the fruit to prevent or detect potential problems in their early stages.
