Brushing your teeth is an important part of your dental care routine. For a healthy mouth and smile the SMILE Gallery recommends you:
The proper brushing technique is to:
Dental floss dislodges food particles trapped between the teeth and under the gums where tooth brushes can't reach. Left unchecked, bacterial buildup can lead to cavities, bad breath, and gum diseases.
We know we should floss at least once a day, but not everyone knows the right way to do it. Use this step-by-step guide to find out how to properly floss your teeth:
Break off about 18 inches of floss and wind most of it around one of your middle fingers. Wind the remaining floss around the same finger of the opposite hand. This finger will take up the floss as it becomes dirty.
Hold the floss tightly between your thumbs and forefingers.
Guide the floss between your teeth using a gentle rubbing motion. Never snap the floss into the gums
When the floss reaches the gum line, curve it into a C shape against one tooth. Gently slide it into the space between the gum and the tooth.
Hold the floss tightly against the tooth. Gently rub the side of the tooth, moving the floss away from the gum with up and down motions. Repeat this method on the rest of your teeth. Don't forget the back side of your last tooth.
Once you're finished, throw the floss away. A used piece of floss won't be as effective and could leave bacteria behind in your mouth.
As with any dental procedure, after-care is important after receiving a temporary or permanent bridge. Restorations should last for many years as long as you continue practicing good dental hygiene and receiving regular checkups with your dentist.
