Brushing, flossing, and rinsing your mouth are three essential components of good oral health care at home. Unfortunately, not everyone follows these three rules in their daily routine, which can pose a serious threat to their oral health, such as the need for root canals or dental implants.

Brushing your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes is the best way to protect your teeth. Doesn’t that sound simple? As it will only take your two minutes.
One of the major reasons people use a toothbrush is to remove plaques and debris that get stuck in spaces between our teeth. Normal toothbrushes cannot reach such tight spots. This is why experts recommend using organic bamboo interdental brushes to remove food debris, scrape plaque and keep you protected against Gingivitis.
Focus on your teeth for a full 120 seconds. Once you get used to the right amount of time, we can respect some of these brushing abilities. So, when you’re ready to speed up your technique, remember these tips:
- Brush against the gum line at a 45-degree angle.
- Brush away from the gums line with a sweeping motion.
- Concentrate on difficult areas to reach around the gums and back teeth.
- Short, gentle strokes are recommended.
- Clear your teeth section by section. Spending 30 seconds on each part is an easy way to give yourself time.
a. Start with the outer surfaces of the upper and lower teeth.
b. Concentrate on the inner surfaces of your upper and lower teeth.
c. Keep chewing surfaces clean.
d. To breathe better, brush your tongue.
Don’t go overboard. The goal is to brush at least twice a day, but more than three times a day can be excessive and eliminate tooth enamel.
Flossing helps you remove plaque and prevent cavities and periodontal disease that toothbrushes cannot reach. The procedure is straightforward, but as with many specific things, each step is important:
- Start with a floss wire that is 18 inches long.
- Wrap most of the strand around your middle fingers and hold it about 1-2 inches between your thumb and index finger.
- Use a gentle rubbing motion as you move the floss between your teeth.
- As you approach the gum line, curl the floss in a C shape against each tooth.
- Carefully strike the floss between the gums and the teeth.
- Always be careful with floss and avoid getting it stuck in your gums.
- Slowly slide the floss away from the gums, moving up and down.
- Floss each tooth using clean floss.
The Mouth Washing
Mouthwash is an important element of your daily oral hygiene practices. Mouthwash, which is high in fluoride and has many flavors, helps strengthen your teeth, prevent cavities, and eliminate bad breath. Most mouthwashes on the market work best if they are placed on the teeth for a few minutes after 30-60 seconds of washing, so rinsing the mouthwash is a natural final step in your routine. Avoid drinking water for at least half an hour after rinsing with mouthwash to guarantee maximum performance.
If you do not use the above strategies regularly, they will not help you. Instead, adopting these three simple routines will help you keep your mouth healthy and happy.
