How often should I visit the dentist?
The American Dental Association states that one should visit his or her dentist once every six months.
What’s the best way I can prevent tooth decay?
Tooth decay can be a very common problem, but you can prevent it by brushing and flossing regularly. Rinsing with mouthwash can also eliminate the cavity-causing bacteria. Lastly, with regular visits to the dentist, you can minimize the likelihood of tooth decay and maximize the health of your teeth.
When looking for a toothbrush, what should I look for?
When choosing a toothbrush, pay attention to the bristle and the toothbrush head’s size. For children or adults who are predisposed to gum irritation or swelling, it is best to choose a soft-bristled and small-head toothbrush. Toothbrushes with medium-to-hard bristles tend to cause damage to the gums, contributing to their recession and irritation. Furthermore, a small-head toothbrush can easily get around hard-to-reach areas of the mouth without irritating and rubbing against the gums. To get a whiter, healthier smile, visit the dentist every six months for dental cleanings.
What toothpaste should I choose?
Choose any toothpaste that contains fluoride. This works great for reducing the likelihood of tooth decay and increases the health of your gums and teeth.
How often should one brush their teeth?
Ideally, you need to brush your teeth after every meal. If that is not possible, brush once in the morning and right before going to bed. For your after-lunch routine, gargle or swish water or mouthwash if you have some.
Do I really need to floss daily?
There are areas between your teeth that your toothbrush simply cannot reach. And for this reason, you need to floss your teeth at least once a day.
