The Best Way to Practice Good Oral Health at Home

Posted on 6/6/2022 by Copper Canyon Dentistry
The Best Way to Practice Good Oral Health at HomeSome basic dental practices include brushing your gums, tongue, and teeth at least twice a day for two minutes per session. You could use a timer to ensure that you spend enough time on your dental care routine. Using floss at least once a day to clean between the teeth is also essential. You should also ensure you use fluoridated toothpaste and mouth rinse, a soft-bristled toothbrush, or cleaning tools approved by ADA.

Ways to Improve Oral Health at Home

The surest way to keep your smile bright and healthy is by maintaining proper brushing practices. It would be best to brush the teeth for at least two minutes, thoroughly cleaning each tooth surface. Brush at least twice a day for two minutes, once at night before bed and again in the morning after eating breakfast. If you want to do better for your oral health, dentists recommend brushing at most three times daily: after breakfast, after lunch, after supper, or the final meal and snack of the day. This is a great way to improve your dental health by removing plaque and food remains. This will ultimately protect your gums, the ultimate proof of oral health.

It is essential to ensure that you floss at least twice each day. Flossing is beneficial for cleaning between teeth and the tooth's natural cracks and gaps that the toothbrush can't reach. Brushing alone only cleans about 60% of the surfaces of your teeth. Using mouthwash to rinse the teeth helps kill bacteria. Mouthwash can rinse away food and bacteria when it's inconvenient to brush, for example, after going out for a snack.

It is essential to observe a nutrient-dense diet. Avoid sugary foods and drinks and incorporate meats, fruits and vegetables, whole cereals, grains, and other healthy, natural foods. A high sugar and starch diet will lead to higher levels of oral bacteria, which cause tooth decay and gum disease.
