Maintaining Dental Hygiene at Home

You should learn to maintain good dental hygiene between dental visits, it should not be that your dental health is taken care of only when you visit a Tijuana dentist. Keeping your teeth healthy in between is equally important. Daily oral care keeps your mouth healthy and helps you maintain a white smile on a daily basis. Below are some of the ways dental hygiene can be maintained from home:

Brush and floss every day

Good dental hygiene starts from brushing teeth two times a day. Most importantly at night, it will help you remove all food particles accumulated during the day and could be harmful if left in the mouth for the whole night. Use a soft to medium bristled brush, makes it easy to reach all the parts of your mouth. The brush should be replaced within a period of three to four months, a worn out brush cannot clean your teeth as a new one does. On top of brushing, regular flossing is very important. It removes debris between the teeth that could not be removed by the brush. The trapped plague lead to teeth cavities hence should be removed on daily basis.

Try using fluoride mouth rinse

Using A fluoride mouthwash is another way of protecting your smile and keeping your teeth free from cavities and gum disease. Mouthwash will also enable you to:
