The most important part of tooth care is brushing and flossing properly, along with regular dental check-ups. To prevent cavities and gum disease, you need to remove plaque by brushing at least twice a day.
Always use a soft bristled toothbrush with a toothpaste that containsfluoride. Make sure that the toothbrush fits inside of your mouth so that you can easily reach all areas. When brushing, use gentle up and down strokes, brushing all sides of the teeth. Always brush your tongue to remove any bacteria and keep your breath fresh.
You should floss your teeth at least once a day. Flossing in between your teeth removes food debris and plaque that a toothbrush can't reach.
When flossing, be sure to gently insert the floss in between the teeth, without snapping, which could damage the gum tissue. Gently move the floss up and down into the spaces
between the gum and teeth. Floss the sides of all of your teeth, even if there isn't a tooth next to another one. There are a number of dental products available that are designed to
make flossing easier. Please ask your Dentist for more details.
