Tooth Brushing Tips to Help with Oral Health
Brushing twice a day but your dentist is always commenting that your oral health needs improvement? Here’s why…….
Dental floss or inter-dental brushes help to remove plaque and small bits of food that can get caught between your teeth and under your gum line – these are the areas that a toothbrush can’t always reach.
It’s important to use this correct technique daily, still feeling unsure? Ask for advice from your dentist or hygienist at your next appointment.
Be aware that even thorough brushing and flossing may not remove every trace of plaque, as most people have irregularities in their teeth where plaque can build up and harden into tartar.
This can only be removed by your dentist or hygienist using special tools in a process called scaling. Polishing using a rotating brush and abrasive paste can also help to remove stains from your teeth
