Oral hygiene is very important for all of us. We focus a lot on how we brush and which toothpaste we use and which brush we use. Other than the quality of oral hygiene products we also need to ensure that we do enough to protect our teeth. Many times we forget that dental hygiene is not only about our teeth but our entire mouth. A clean mouth will ensure that we have clean and healthy teeth. After all, you cannot have a carefree smile if you don’t have healthy and clean teeth.

1. Brush

Your teeth need to remain clean and free of plaque. Brush your teeth twice a day and no more. Brush your teeth once in the morning and once before you go to bed. If you brush your teeth too much you may remove the enamel and cause damage to your teeth.  

2. Tongue cleaner

Other than your teeth your tongue needs cleaning too. Clean your tongue using a tongue cleaner or brush your tongue as well. It is essential to clean your tongue because plaque and germs can breed there and infect your teeth and mouth as well.

3. Quit Smoking

Smoking weakens your teeth and stains them. If you are a smoker, it would be a good idea to quit smoking for your teeth as well as your body.

4. Mouthwash

Your brush and tongue cleaner cannot reach everywhere. Dental hygiene is not only about your teeth but about your mouth. Mouthwash is can reach all the places that your brush and tongue cleaner missed and cleanse it.

5. Clean Brush

Your brush can breed germs if you don’t and infect your teeth. This is why you need to keep your brush clean. Keep your brush in a clean place and wash it with plain water after using and let it dry.

6. Change Brush

With continuous use, the bristles on your brush get damaged. Weak bristles cannot clean your teeth properly and you may end up with bacteria and plaque left on your teeth. Change your brush after every 3 months.

7. Dental check-up

Don’t miss out on your dental check-up. See your dentist every 6 months to ensure the safety of your teeth and your hygiene.
