Brushing and flossing your teeth is an essential part of your dental health. It helps you maintain your oral hygiene and removes plaque from the surface of your teeth. Brushing and flossing your teeth daily will help you maintain good oral health and prevent gum disease, cavities, and tooth loss.
The best way to brush your teeth is to angle the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle against the gum line and brush with short strokes back and forth across each tooth. Be sure to brush the outer, inner, and chewing surfaces of the teeth. You should also use a brush to clean your tongue.
The best flossing techniques include using a gentle sawing motion to quickly glide the floss between each set of two teeth. Make sure to clean the upper teeth first and then the lower ones. Flossing should be done daily to remove plaque and food particles that get stuck between the teeth and cause tooth decay. Avoid using a back-and-forth sawing motion when flossing because this can irritate your gums. It can be helpful to use waxed floss instead of unwaxed for an easier time flossing. Dental water picks can also help remove food particles between your teeth. For the best oral hygiene, make sure to use the proper brushing and flossing techniques to maintain a healthy mouth.
