Part of our general welfare is a good oral health. To achieve this, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day is not enough to say we have a good dental health. In this article, we will find things we can do to maintain good oral health.
The easiest way is to brush your teeth properly and regularly. Brushing is very important because it cleans teeth and helps remove plaque. If plaque is not removed accumulates around the teeth and cause problems later. Most dentists recommend that adults use a toothbrush with soft bristles sized to prevent erosion of the enamel. It is also recommended to use a fluoride toothpaste base, since it strengthens teeth and protects against plaque buildup.
You only need a small amount of toothpaste on the brush and the toothbrush should be changed every two or three months. Even better use an electric toothbrush as they clean teeth thoroughly and prevent more than brushing can cause gum recession. This can happen when you brush too hard on one side to another with a normal toothbrush.
The best way to brush your teeth is as follows:
1 Place the head of your toothbrush on the teeth and the hair at an angle of inclination of 45 degrees against the gum line. Move the brush in small circular movements, several times on all surfaces of each tooth.
2 Brush the outer surfaces of each tooth, upper and lower, keeping the bristles angled against the gumline.
3 Use the same method on the inner surfaces of the teeth.
4 Brush the chewing surfaces of teeth
5 To clean the inside surfaces of front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several small circular movements with the front of the brush.

Flossing also plays a vital role in our dental health. Ideally, we should floss your teeth after every meal, but at least once a day. Flossing removes food particles and plaque between teeth that brushing can not reach. To properly use the floss around 12 to 18 inches of floss and the finger forward. As we begin to silk, to be held between the thumb and forefinger. Floss with care to avoid cutting the gums. Start at the top and work your way from left to right and down.
Then follow this pattern between the teeth. Sometimes, looking in the mirror can help you see that you do well.

And leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean, a good mouthwash protects against bad breath can be a symptom of bad teeth or poor oral health. But remember, use a mouthwash is not a substitute for cleaning your teeth properly.
