Oral Hygiene: Going the Extra Mile

Posted .

Oral hygiene is very important. In fact, it’s vital for a top-notch oral health and smile. This is why your dentist, Dr. Lin Wong, strongly recommends keeping up on oral hygiene regularly, which should include brushing twice a day and flossing daily. For an even better oral hygiene routine, you can go the extra mile. You can do so by doing the following things:

-Rinse with mouthwash daily: Rinsing with antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash can help your teeth and gums in many ways. In fact, it can help you prevent cavities, enamel erosion, and gum disease. It can even kill the bacteria on your tongue to give you good breath. So, try to rinse with mouthwash once a day.

-Brush your teeth after lunch: Instead of just brushing every morning and night, brush after lunch too. This can help you have a cleaner and healthier smile. It can even help you avoid embarrassing food-filled smile moments.

-Use a tongue scraper: A tongue scraper can clean the bacteria from your tongue regularly. This can help you eliminate plaque-causing bacteria as well as bacteria that cause odorous breath.
