Dentist Fort Wayne- Tips for maintaining good oral health

  1. 1. Mouth is one of the organs in the human body which demands a lot of care and hygiene. Oral care alone takes up 50% of the overall care given to the body. A great oral cavity will allow people to smile, laugh, talk and shout with lots of freedom and joy.
  2. 2. Brush and Floss The golden rule towards maintaining oral hygiene is to floss once and brush twice every day. It is important to use fluoridated toothpaste and take at least 2 to 3 minutes to brush the teeth.
  3. 3. Rinse the mouth after meals Rinsing the mouth with clean water or using an anti-bacterial rinse will be ideal to prevent decay, gum problems and neutralizing acidic components.
  4. 4. Clean the tongue It is advisable to use the brush itself to clean the tongue to get rid of microbes living on the tongue’s surface. This will certainly make breath much better.
  5. 5. Trash Cigarettes, Tobacco and alcohol A person who uses any of these three will certainly have bad breath, yellow teeth, enamel problems and decay. First quit these before taking any Measures for oral care.
