It maybe a little irregular to ask someone if they know how to clean their teeth properly, because most people in Bath would probably answer in the affirmative, yet the chances are they may not though, as statistics in the area show a rise in tooth decay and gum disease- the two may enemies that you are trying to avoid, which is why good oral hygiene is essential. Every day when you clean your teeth, gums and tongue, you are trying to prevent bacteria developing into plaque and there are some superb brushes and pastes on the market to help you do this. Then there are the small inter-dental brushes and dental floss that you can use for deep cleaning in and around the teeth and gums. Finally, you can wrap up the process with a good mouth-wash. Now, it’s okay having all of these products, but they will only work to their maximum efficiency if you know how to use them properly. So, every so often you should have a rain check and get along to your dentists and learn all over again. Another factor in oral hygiene is that newer and better products come out every week that you may have missed since you last went shopping for dental products, so you should question your dentist on this as well. If you have and concerns or any issues surrounding oral hygiene, you should contact Clifton Dental up in Bristol, as they serve your area as well.
