How to Improve Your Dental Hygiene Routine

Posted on 4/26/2021 by Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS
How to Improve Your Dental Hygiene RoutineWe all know that brushing our teeth twice a day and flossing once a day are important for good dental health. While there's no doubt about that, simply brushing and flossing your teeth isn't enough to keep your gums and teeth in the best shape and health. These two oral care habits simply won't make the cut.

After all, there's more to those pearly white and that sparkling smile most people desire to have.

Take a look at a few key ways through which you can improve your dental hygiene routine.

Brush the Back of the Teeth

Oftentimes, people brush the front or the surface of their teeth and completely forget the back because it's one of those hard-to-reach spots in the mouth. However, it is extremely important to brush the back part of the teeth because all those gaps and spaces in the molars, for instance, are at high risk of contracting cavities and gum diseases.

So, start brushing the back of your teeth to improve your dental hygiene routine.

Don't Forget to Brush Your Tongue

The human is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria that can lead to multiple dental health issues such as bad breath and plaque accumulation. Every time you brush your teeth, make sure to get the tongue as well to remove the bacteria as well as to make your mouth smell fresh.

Add Mouthwash To Your Routine

Alongside brushing and flossing, try to include an antimicrobial mouthwash in your daily dental routine because it helps kill oral bacteria and leaves the mouth feeling super fresh and clean.

These are just a few ways to help you get started to improve your dental hygiene routine. If you need any help or suggestions regarding it, you can call us at (315) 800-5020 to schedule an appointment with our dental experts who can give you the right kind of guidance.
