You brush twice daily and floss once a day and you never miss your bi-annual dental appointment. All great things! However, maybe you are wondering how to enhance your oral health in additional ways.
Good news…you can! Read on for more on this.
Your best dental health can be achieved
It is key to not only brush, but brush properly. When brushing, be sure you are holding your brush at an angle, pointing the bristles at the area where the gums and teeth meet. Brush gently in a circle; brushing hard can damage gums. And brush for two minutes each time.
Also, rinse your toothbrush after use and store it upright, allowing it to air dry. If you live with others, store your toothbrush away from other brushes to prevent contamination.
Replacing your toothbrush at least every three months is also vital to dental health, as bristles can become worn. Using mouthwash that contains fluoride can also enhance the health of your teeth and mouth.
Exploring additional dental procedures, such as cosmetic dentistry, is a great way to not only have a beautiful smile, but also a healthier one. Some cosmetic dental treatments provide benefits that include improving your teeth and gum health.
