Oral Hygiene

Published on July 31, 2011 by

Your dentist and dental hygienist will properly instruct you on oral health care. These oral hygiene instructions and good practices should begin at a very early age. You will be taught how to brush and floss your teeth, and clean your gums and tongue. Dental plaque needs to be removed from your teeth properly every day, at least twice daily. Making this effort to keep your teeth and mouth healthy and clean will help you to prevent tooth decay, gingivitis, and other gum diseases. The dentist and dental hygienist can also advice you on your diet and nutrition in order to keep your mouth healthy.   
 
Several pointers include: Using a soft/medium nylon toothbrush; holding your brush comfortably; using a pea-sized amount of toothpaste; angling your brush at a 45 degree angle along the gum line; using a vibrating circular motion when brushing, etc. Make sure that you brush for at least two minutes twice daily and floss.
