Every one of you should know the values of brushing your teeth well: this basic, yet valuable procedure each day ensures that you remove sticky bacteria from the surfaces of your teeth and hopefully prevent plaque from getting a hold in your mouth. However, for all the good brushing does, it is often required that you to go the extra mile in order to give your teeth and gums a thorough clean. Your brush is simply too big to get right in between your teeth and up around the gums, so you have to go out and accessorise more. Inter-dental brushes are tiny and can right into the areas where food gets stuck; dental floss is also excellent for this. Flossing after meals can help get up around the gums and remove any left over bits that may be lodged in there. To add to your set of goodies, having a good mouthwash can also help swish away any bacteria and leave your mouth feeling fresh and healthy. If you back this entire process up with regular visits to your dentist, your teeth and gums should remain healthy throughout your life.
