What can I do to keep my teeth clean?

Daily dental care keeps your teeth healthy and prevents dental diseases. These are a few simple steps you can follow:

  • Make sure you brush all surfaces of the teeth. Ensure you get the right sized toothbrush that reaches all sides of your teeth. Some find electric toothbrushes helpful.
  • Make sure you use a fluoride toothpaste as it strengthens the tooth structure and resists decay.
  • A fluoridated mouthwash may also be used. Use it at a separate time of day and avoid eating or drinking at least 30 minutes after.
  • Flossing helps clean hard-to-reach areas between teeth.It removes plaque and food debris, improving gum health and alleviating bad breath. Flossing should be done before brushing.
  • Special interdental brushes are also available to clean areas between teeth.
  • Avoid using tooth picks as they can damage your gums.
