To effectively clean your teeth, use a soft-bristled brush and gently move it in a circular motion along the gum line and chewing surfaces, spending at least two minutes twice a day.
You should replace your toothbrush every three to four months or sooner if the bristles become frayed, to maintain good oral hygiene.
Yes, flossing daily helps remove plaque and food particles from between teeth and under the gumline where a toothbrush can’t reach, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
While not a substitute for brushing and flossing, using an antiseptic or fluoride mouthwash can help reduce bacteria, strengthen enamel, and prevent dental issues.
Limit sugary and acidic foods and drinks that can erode enamel and lead to decay; instead, choose water, dairy products, and crunchy fruits and vegetables that stimulate saliva production and naturally clean teeth.
