Oral hygiene is vital for a top-notch oral health and smile. This is why it’s important to have the best smile-cleaning technique possible. To help you improve your technique, our dentist, Dr. Robert Rebert, has some tips that can give you the effective routine you need. Those tips are:

-Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste when you brush your teeth. The soft bristles care for your gums and clean your chompers and the fluoride strengthens your tooth enamel, which can help you prevent dental issues.

-If possible, avoid rinsing your mouth with water after you brush your teeth. This can help the fluoride further dive into your teeth and strengthen them.

-Be gentle along the gums as you floss. It’s easy to damage the oral tissues if you force the floss into place. So, it’s recommended to use a tool that is easy to work around your smile.

-Add rinsing to your oral hygiene routine. After you brush and floss at night, rinse your mouth with antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. This can help you complete the smile-cleaning job and even strengthen your tooth enamel.
