How the Best Dentists Say to Have a Better Smile

icons4x3200px

We all want to have a healthy and good-looking smile, but this requires good dental care, both professionally and at home. Since the dentist can’t clean your teeth every day, follow these simple steps for better dental hygiene at home.

Get Rid of Plaque

The sticky coating that builds up on teeth after having sugary and starchy foods and beverages is called plaque. It’s filled with bacteria that can cause tooth decay, gum disease, sensitivity, and other dental care problems. In addition to getting regular check-ups and cleanings from an affordable dentist, the most effective ways to eliminate plaque are by brushing and flossing every day.

Use a Proper Brushing Technique

Not everyone brushes his or her teeth well enough to prevent plaque from forming. To get rid of plaque and the problems it causes, the best dentist will suggest these six proven brushing techniques:

  1. Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  2. Choose a toothpaste containing fluoride to help protect your teeth from decay.
  3. Position the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle against your gums.
  4. Move the brush in a gentle, back-and-forth motion.
  5. Brush the outside, inside, and chewing surfaces of teeth.
  6. Also brush your tongue to clean away any built-up bacteria and freshen your breath.

Floss Once a Day

Brushing is one part of fighting plaque, but the other dental care essential is flossing. Flossing removes the food particles trapped between teeth, which can cause plague and lead to gum disease. Rather than spend time and money treating problems with an affordable dentist, prevent dental care problems by flossing once a day in the following way:

  • Pull off around 18 inches of floss and wrap it around each hand, holding it between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Gently glide the floss between your teeth with a gentle, back-and-forth motion.
  • Hold the floss firmly against each tooth as you go.
  • Curve the floss against the tooth when it reaches the gum line.
  • Then guide the floss away from the gum with short, up-and-down motions.
  • Repeat on every tooth with a fresh section of floss.
