Proper and effective maintenance of oral hygiene is extremely necessary in keeping your entire mouth healthy. In order for you to have healthy and strong teeth, avoid bad breath and stay clear of gum infections and disease. Oral hygiene does not only means cleaning and taking care of your teeth alone but the entire mouth. Combine brushing your teeth with flossing, scraping your tongue and using mouthwash to give your entire mouth a thorough cleaning.
The following are the ways to keep our mouth regularly clean.
Rinse the mouth with mouthwash: The mouth wash is basically an antiseptic solution that is use to kill or retard the growth of bacteria in your mouth after brushing. You can use mouthwash to make sure you reach every corner of your mouth. Mouthwash should never be used as an alternative to brushing and flossing, we should try to use mouthwash before going to bed to help protect the mouth from bacteria while you sleep.
Brushing your teeth twice daily: The first step to cleaning your whole mouth and ensuring you maintain good oral hygiene is brushing your teeth frequently and effectively. We brush everyday repeatedly to reduce the bacteria load in the mouth, prevent disease development, remove stains and also food particles.it is recommended that we brush twice daily, one in the morning and the other at night.
Flossing regularly: The regular use of dental floss helps to remove plaque and helps to prevent the build of plaque, which can lead to tartar. Flossing your teeth can make them look brighter by removing plaque and excess food particles that you may not see in the mirror or in areas that your toothbrush doesn’t reach. Flossing daily will help remove lingering substances that are caught between your teeth.
Brush your tongue: The tongue is just as much of a target for bacteria as your teeth; the easiest way to clean your tongue is just by using your toothbrush. Brush your tongue from back to the front to help remove plaque and discourage the growth of bacteria and the development.
