Do you want a strong and healthy smile? If so, you need a top-notch oral hygiene routine. Unfortunately, it is possible to have a poor oral hygiene routine or to perform the oral hygiene tasks incorrectly. It’s best to develop the best oral hygiene techniques possible so you can reduce your chances of harming or damaging your smile. To help you, our dentists, Dr. Thomas Anglemire and Dr. Ross Schafer, are happy to list some handy oral hygiene tricks that can help. Those tricks are:
-Set a timer while you brush: It’s important to brush for two minutes each time. If you brush less or more than two minutes, it can harm your teeth and gums. So, set a timer while you brush or play your favorite two-minute song.
-Use flossing products that are easy to maneuver: This is helpful because if the product isn’t easy to use, you can force the floss in place and be rough around the gums. These things can damage the gums. So, use products that are easy to use, like waxed floss, flossing picks and more.
-Rinse your mouth: Rinsing with mouthwash can complete the smile-cleaning job, strengthen the teeth and freshen the breath. So, use antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash to rinse daily.
