Its never too late to start developing healthy habits.Even if till this stage of
life you have for some reason been negligent about your oral hygiene,the time to
start is now.
Brushing your teeth is the cornerstone of any good oral hygiene routine. To keep
your teeth and gums healthy, always be sure to brush your teeth twice a day with
a soft- bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing
you to reach all areas easily. Also, don't forget to replace your toothbrush every
three or four months or sooner if the bristles are frayed.
A worn toothbrush won't do a good job of cleaning your teeth. Finally, make sure
to use a toothpaste containing fluoride containing toothpaste.
Flossing goes hand in hand with brushing. By flossing once a day, you help to remove
plaque from between your teeth in areas where the toothbrush can't reach. This is
extremely important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing
can eventually harden into calculus or tartar. Once tartar has formed, it can only
be removed by a professional cleaning.
