Boca Dentist Tips
There’s more to proper dental hygiene than brushing twice a day and flossing. In this blog entry, we’ll be showing you just a few ways that you can keep your teeth clean and pristine between appointments.
Our first tip is recommending that you use an electric toothbrush rather than a standard one. Electric toothbrushes offer ease of use due to its automatic brushing movements. Electric toothbrushes can be especially helpful if you tend to see more plaque and calcium buildup in your mouth, as they can help remove those particles daily. Just make sure not to brush too hard as it’ll damage your gums! Next, make sure to rinse your mouth after flossing. Flossing helps remove any loose debris in your teeth, but rinsing with water can help flush your mouth from not only said debris but any bacteria as well. Lastly, don’t neglect your tongue when brushing your teeth. Your tongue carries millions of bacteria living on it and is often the sole cause of bad breath and plaque buildup in the mouth. Make sure to brush your tongue gently and use mouthwash to help freshen your breath and kill bacteria. Also, use a mouthwash that has fluoride in it, as it’ll help strengthen your teeth and protect your mouth overall.
