You may see different type of toothpaste’s advertisement on the TV or hear on the radio. They are very attractive, for teeth sensitivity and teeth whitening. But those products are not always good for our teeth. It’s better if you consult with your dentist about the best toothpaste for your teeth type.

Flossing cleans the surfaces between your teeth. This is important because you can’t clean there effectively with your toothbrush. As a result, if you don’t floss, food, plaque, and bacteria build up there.

(i) Use 30 cm of floss or an inter dental cleaner. Insert it between your teeth and curve it around one of the teeth. Move it up and down along the side of the tooth, and then curve around the other tooth and repeat.

(ii) Be gentle when you go below the gum line. If you are new to flossing, your gums may bleed, but after a few days, this will stop.

9. Use mouthwash regularly

Find a mouthwash that has fluoride in it. If you use a fluoride mouthwash after brushing and flossing, this will help the fluoride reach the enamel of all surfaces of your teeth. Swish the mouthwash around in your mouth for two minutes to allow it to thoroughly coat all areas of your teeth.

(i) You can also make a natural remedy using a salt solution. Put half teaspoon of salt into a glass of warm water and stir.

(ii) Don’t swallow the mouthwash because it may upset your stomach. If you want to try to kill bacteria further back in your throat, you can gargle briefly before spitting it out.
