1. Brush your mouth

 

 

Yes, brushing is not only limited to your teeth but your entire mouth. Use soft bristle toothbrush, hold it at a 45 degree angle, and brush the roof of your mouth, tongue, gums and teeth for at least two minutes. Follow this brushing method twice a day for fresh breath and healthy teeth.

 

2. Don’t forget to floss

 

 

Once you are done brushing your entire mouth, proceed with flossing. While brushing is important, it cannot remove all the leftover food from your mouth. This is why you need to floss - to remove any food particles or detriment stuck in between your teeth. Since the process is quite time consuming, do it only once a day!

 

 

3. Use mouthwash

 

 

So you thought brushing and flossing was enough? Think again. Due to their liquid consistency, mouthwash reaches those areas of your mouth where even floss can’t. Regular usage of mouthwash protects your mouth from serious oral health issues such a plaque, bleeding gums and gingivitis!

 

4. Watch what you eat

 

 

While we are already aware that too much of sweet can cause tooth decay, you should also keep an eye out for other dental health negative food items such as alcohol, soda and food items with hard shells. Drink soda and alcohol with a straw to avoid direct contact with the teeth and cut hard food items into small pieces to prevent any sudden injury. Instead switch to fruits and juices when you get sweet cravings!

 

5. Clean and change your toothbrush often

 

 

What cleans your mouth also needs to be cleaned every now and then! A toothbrush can become a breeding ground of germs if it isn’t looked after properly. Rinse your brush and let it dry before putting it away. Refuse to share your toothbrush with anyone. Make it a point to change your toothbrush every three to four months.
