Protecting Your Teeth to Last a Lifetime
Your teeth are designed to last a lifetime. But it requires constant vigilance and daily attention to maintain them.
Brush Thoroughly and Regularly
It doesn’t matter whether you use a regular toothbrush or a fancy electric model. The important thing is that you brush twice a day for at least two minutes. You must thoroughly brush every region of your mouth. And change your brush regularly–it will work better and it’s it a lot healthier. too.
Floss Every Day
Flossing every day is the best way to remove plaque from places your toothbrush cannot reach. This also helps in the fight against gingivitis, a type of gum disease that can threaten the health of your smile.
Use Mouthwash that Contains Fluoride
Mouthwash isn’t just useful for freshening your breath. It also fights against gum disease like gingivitis. And make sure your mouthwash contains fluoride, to help prevent cavities.
