Brushing

To make sure your oral health is the best possible, make sure to brush at least twice a day. We recommend brushing three times a day, after every meal, but we understand if you forget or don’t have the time for this frequent of brushing. When you brush your teeth make sure to brush for two minutes. A good way to figure that out is by brushing for 30 seconds on each portion of your mouth. Set a timer, or watch the clock, to make sure you hit your two minutes for each brushing. Brush in the morning when you wake up and before you go to bed to ensure you remove all of the food particles from your mouth.

Flossing

In addition to brushing, make sure to practice flossing. Flossing is an efficient way to remove all of the food particles that get in between your teeth. Make sure to floss after you brush to remove all of the food particles that you may have missed. When you floss between your teeth you’re able to catch all of the bits of food stuck there and avoid getting cavities between your teeth.

Quit Tobacco

This may be a resolution already, but cigarettes harm your oral health and your overall health. Cigarettes can cause many different diseases, but they can also discolor your teeth and give you bad breath. There are many different ways to quit smoking and using tobacco, just use your resources and figure out the best solution for you.
