Brushing and flossing are important parts of your daily routine. But to get the most benefit, you have to do it correctly.
Once you’ve finished brushing and flossing, rinse your mouth vigorously with mouthwash to remove any loosened plaque and food particles. Some mouthwashes are helpful in treating or controlling plaque buildup, gum disease, bad breath and tooth decay!
When it comes to preventive care, there’s no bad time to dive in. Dentists recommend brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once. Consider adding extra sessions after high-carbohydrate or sugary meals.
In addition to brushing and flossing, regular dental cleanings are an important part of maintaining your oral and overall health. Call your dentist today to schedule an appointment!
